新堂動土及祝聖儀式在千禧年七月三十曰舉行, 由Bishop Clune 主教主持,動土當日, 大雨淋漓,但参加者的熱誠卻沒有受天氣的影響,大家興高彩烈地慶祝並感謝上主,因為計劃多年的新堂終於可以從設計的階段搬到一個實在的建築階段。當曰參加者約有四百人。

二零零一年十二月,第二期工程雖未竣工,但屬於第一期之聖堂則己順利通過市政府各種檢驗而獲得入伙紙。江神父於是决定在十二月二十二日舉行首台彌撒聖祭,在二零零一年的聖誕子時聖祭亦在新堂舉行,就此聖曹桂英堂便跨越了一個新的里程碑。 

二零零二年 九月二十二日, 多倫多總主教親臨主持新堂祝聖典禮及堂區成立十週年慶典。

Kong decided to celebrate our First Mass on December 22, 2001 and Mid Night Mass of 2001 was also celebrated in the new church. 

Saint Agnes Kouying Tsao Catholic Church crossed into a new era on September 22, 2002 when His Eminence Aloysius Cardinal Ambrozic, Archdiocese of Toronto celebrated the Parish 10th Anniversary and Consecration Mass.
