Toronto Child/Infant Friendly Church

For my readers who are Catholics and looking for a Church that does not mind noisy little ones, my family always attend the 10:30AM Sunday mass at St. Gabriel’s Passionist Parish at 670 Sheppard Avenue East.

The kids including infants (with parent/s) have Bible-related activities before the 1st reading starts and finishes during the Offertory. The activity varies every Sunday from colouring, to creating paper crowns, and of course Bible reading. Big kids are encouraged to participate and are given treats whenever they do so.

The basement parking’s family washroom has a very clean diaper changing area. And if you are breastfeeding, there are a lot of discreet areas for you and your little one.

The community is very welcoming to little ones and we have never felt judged because of our noisy toddler and whenever I breastfeed.

So if you’ve never been to this Parish, just give it a try! Everybody is welcome!
