St. Thomas More, Toronto, is a traditional Catholic (quasi)parish of the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter where we make a special welcome to Anglicans (and other Protestants) who are seeking to come home to the Catholic Church. Originally erected in 2014 by Mons. Jeffrey Steenson, we’re a small but faithful community composed of converts, cradle Catholics and re-verts to the faith. We seek to grow in holiness in our daily lives, and find spiritual nourishment by coming together to worship according to the Ordinariate Form of the Mass.

     We love our English patrimony and are convinced that the way in which the Anglican witness will be preserved in the wider Church is through full communion with the See of Peter, which provides the essential fullness of Catholic doctrine, as interpreted through the Petrine Ministry, for the organic unity and health of the Body of Christ.

     We do not currently have a Parish Priest, but are served by our Parochial Administrator Deacon Joseph DeCaria, kindly aided in liturgical functions by a number of excellent Priests of the Fathers of the Oratory who, along with the Archdiocese of Toronto, have given us a home at St. Vincent de Paul Church in the Roncesvalles neighborhood. Come and visit us and join our community for worship, fellowship and good works. Come and discover the Venerable English Mass!​

Address: 263 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto, ON  M6R 2L9






Sunday Mass: 12.30 pm

Confession: half hour before Mass

St. Thomas More, located within the Archdiocese of Toronto, is a community of the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter worships at St. Vincent De Paul. We worship the Triune God with Sacral English and beautiful music in a manner that keeps ancient English Catholic tradition alive here in the city. We have an accent on the Catholicism found in England before the Protestant Reformation and on the spiritual patrimony that survived and sustained the faithful through it. But with all of that said, the faith expressed at STM’s is not a ‘museum faith’ but is rather one that is lively and actively engages a culture that is largely indifferent (and often hostile) to the Church that Christ founded two-thousand years ago. Discover the rich and deep traditions of the Church by worshipping with us! All are welcome!

From the Bloor Danforth Subway Line:

  • Get off at Dundas West station.

  • Take the ‘504 King’ street car from within the station.  (No transfer necessary.)

  • Get off at High Park Blvd. Cross the street and walk a block north to the church.


From the Yonge-University Line:

  • You will need a transfer.

  • Get off either at King (on the Yonge line) or St Andrew’s (on the University line).  (You are almost guaranteed to get a seat if you get off at King, but it may be faster to get off at St Andrew’s.)

  • Take the 504 street car westbound. Make sure to get onto the ‘504 Dundas West Station’ car.  The ‘504 Roncesvalles’ car stops about a kilometer south of the church.

  • Get off at Fermanagh Ave  (which is the first set of lights north of Queen) and walk a block north to the church.


From the Gardiner:

  • Get off at the Jameson Avenue exit. Go north to King Street (the first set of lights). Go west (left) on King.  King will start to curve north and will eventually become Roncesvalles at Queen Street. Continue on King and then Roncesvalles to the church. The church is on the east (right) side of the road just after the first set of lights north of Queen. (The approximate distance from the Jameson exit is 2 km.)

From the 401:

  • Get off at Black Creek going south. Go south (left) on Weston Road. Weston Road becomes Keele. Continue south on Keele. Go east (left) on Dundas West. Continue on Dundas West as it curves south and crosses Bloor. At the first set of lights south of Bloor, go straight, rather than following the main flow of traffic on Dundas West. Pass through another set of lights and then look for the church on the left side of the street.  You should see it just before the next set of lights.


On the weekends there is parking available to parishioners in the schoolyard of St. Vincent de Paul school. Enter through the gates on Westminster Avenue, on the North side of the church.
