Latest News & Events
Most of our world is waking up to the knowledge that 90% of everything moves by ship.
Which means we are all highly dependant on shipping and seafarers. This astounding fact means it is more important than ever that we ensure our seafarers are well served and provided for when in our ports. How can we make this happen? Together.
There is much work to be done, and we need your help.
Join us at our upcoming “ICEBREAKER FUNDRAISER BBQ” on May 22 at the Toronto Mission Station, 8 Unwin Avenue, Pier 51, Toronto
The article shown here was in the Hamilton Spectator last weekend.
Clergy, parishioners and others from St. Michaels, The Church of the Resurrection, St. Stephen's on the Mount, and Holy Trinity took part in a 10Km walk to raise money for the Mission.
We are all very grateful for the efforts of these people in helping the work of the MTSSO.
We hope to see you all down at the Mission someday soon.
Many thanks again!!
Conor Waugh and his crew have been hard at work (and under the careful eye of Judith):

Rev Judith Chaplain and Executive Director, in the newly cleaned and repainted space of the Toronto, Unwin Street station. This makes way for the Kitchen renovations expected to start early in the New Year. Until those are complete our Pub Lunches have to be bag lunches. But let us know, come on down and we will make the coffee.
Message from the Directors:
With approval now in place from all levels of authority, the two Missions to Seafarers, Hamilton and Toronto, are now one. After more than a year of effort the 2 Boards of Directors and the Memberships have achieved this union with the blessings of the Dioceses of Toronto and Niagara, the Port Authorities, the shipping industry and of course the sailors themselves: They can look forward to even greater service , from Oshawa to St Catherines from the new and invigorated Missions to Seafarers Southern Ontario.
Sort of....There is one lane now open across the turning basin channel on Cherry Street. You no longer need to drive east to Leslie and around the end of the basin to get to the Toronto Mission. Nice drive though if you would like to see more of the activities of this dynamic area of the Toronto Portlands.
