Who we are

Welcome to the Parish of Nativity of Our Lord, Etobicoke. Since it's establishment in 1962, our parish has served the pastoral, spiritual and social needs of the community in west-central Etobicoke. Our parishioners come from a variety of ethnic and national backgrounds. Many have been here since the beginning, while others have recently moved into the area. However, we are all united in our love of God and of God's church.

Our parish is named after the great event of the birth of Christ in our world over 2000 years ago. As members of this parish, we recognize that we are called to continue the mission of Jesus Christ by celebrating our faith through worship and the celebration of the sacraments, and living out that faith in the many ministries, groups and organizations found here.

May God bless you!
Peace and prayers,

Fr. Michael Machacek,
Nativity of Our Lord Parish,

First Communion

The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.

Holy Orders

Could God be calling you to be a priest, deacon, brother or sister in order to help our world of today to truly 'prepare the way of the Lord?' If God is calling you, contact the Vocations office at 416-968-0997 or email [email protected]


Couples planning to be married must contact a priest one year in advance. They must also receive personal preparation for entering marriage. If either party has previously gone through any form of civil or religious marriage with another person, the priest is not permitted to set a date for the wedding until the Bishop's office has been consulted.


Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.


My dear Parishioners of Nativity of Our Lord:

I am happy to announce that our church is now open for mass. Our previous mass schedule, for both weekdays and weekends, will remain the same as before.

Please note that we have determined that in order to maintain the proper 2 metre (6 feet) distancing, and including the balcony, our church seating capacity has been reduced to 160 people., which will definitely impact our weekend masses, where we would get anywhere from 325 to over 500 people attending a Saturday evening or Sunday morning mass.

If you are coming for a weekday mass, attendance will be by a “first come, first served” basis.

However, for all weekend masses, you must register online (or by phone, if you do not have a home computer) by using the link to Eventbrite that will be available on our parish website beginning on Monday, June 22nd at 9 am. see

Peace and prayers,

Fr. Michael Machacek.

History of Nativity of Our Lord Roman Catholic Church Etobicoke

Nativity of Our Lord Parish was established on June 04th, 1962, by His Eminence James Cardinal McGuigan, Archbishop of Toronto, to serve the spiritual needs of the growing Catholic population in the new subdivision of west-central Etobicoke. Fr. John Moyer was appointed as the first pastor and was given the task of organizing the community and building the necessary facilities. With hard work, he completed the present buildings in two years: the Church, the Church Hall and the Rectory. Our parish was blessed and dedicated on June 07th, 1964. Within these two years, our population grew from 150 to 1250 people. Steady growth continues and we now number about 2000 registered parishioners.

The Parish has various organizations and ministries serving the spiritual and social development of parishioners of all ages: young children, young adults, adults and seniors. Details about each of these organizations and ministries are found inside this brochure. We welcome new active parishioners. For more information, please contact the parish office.

We encourage all Catholic families to identify their parish community and register themselves in that parish, thereby opening doors to active participation in various spiritual and social activities relating to their family and their community. All sacraments (Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation) are available to all registered members of the parish.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer With us night and morning
By gracious powers so wonderfully sheltered, and confidently waiting come what may, we know that God is with us night and morning, and never fails to greet us each new day. Yet is this heart by its old foe tormented, still evil days bring burdens hard to bear; Oh, give our frightened souls the sure salvation for which, O Lord, You taught us to prepare. And when this cup You give is filled to brimming with bitter suffering, hard to understand, we take it thankfully and without trembling, out of so good and so beloved a hand. Yet when again in this same world You give us the joy we had, the brightness of Your Sun, we shall remember all the days we lived through, and our whole life shall then be Yours alone.
