Some history, where we meet, and what we do!

The Kolping Society of Toronto was started in 1955, and has flourished ever since. We operate out of St. Patrick’s Church, and we use the facilities of Catholic Settlement House adjoining the church. We are located at131 McCaul Street at Dundas Street across from the Toronto Art Gallery. A large hall and other meeting areas are available for our use. Our members are actively supporting the operation of the parish and are members of the church board. Many of our male members are also involved in the choir “Harfentoene” in the parish.
