St Silouan The Athonite Mission - Toronto, Ontario
About St Silouan the Athonite Mission
St. Silouan the Athonite, a mission parish of the Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople established in 2002 by our God-loving Metropolitan, Nicholas of Amissos, is of "one body and one spirit in Christ" with St. John the Compassionate Mission and outreach ministry to the destitute and the needy of Toronto.
St. Silouan is a geographical mission parish. While members come from as far as Kitchener and France, many live in South Riverdale. With St. John's Mission we believe it is very important to pray for and be involved in our neighbourhood.
We are open from Wednesday to Sunday for worship. Through out the week people can come for confession, religious classes, use our library or have a cup of coffee.
Our community, reflecting the contemporary reality of Canada is made up of people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Some of us can barely read and write and others have PhDs. A privileged place is given to the socially excluded and handicapped. We worship, serve and love mostly in ENGLISH. Our membership presently numbers approximately 20 families.
St. Silouan Mission Parish is in the need of the following items:
- Processional Cross
- Altar Fans (Ripidia)
- Green Priest Vestments and Altarboy Dalmatics of All Sizes
If you would like to assist the mission through donating gently used or new liturgical items, or through a monetary gift, please contact:
