The Catholic Register, October 10, 2013 — Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Toronto capped off its centenary celebrations with a special Sunday afternoon Mass at St. Paul’s Basilica.
The Mass was a “time for rejoicing,” said Cardinal Thomas Collins, archbishop of Toronto, who was main celebrant at the Mass, which was followed by a reception.
