Ontario is in Step 3 of its’ Roadmap to Reopen.  For Churches, no fixed seating capacity has been mandated however, since physical distancing requirements remain in place, indoor capacity is approximately one-third (33%) of maximum capacity.

 

Face masks continue to be mandatory as is signing our contact tracing book. Pre-registration is not required.

For love of our neighbour and ourselves, Diocesan and Public Health Pandemic Protocols are followed at all our Masses  to ensure a welcome and safe environment for all.

Parishioners are reminded that Bishop Bergie's dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, granted on March 16, 2020, is ongoing. 

 

We pray with you and for you with patience so we can beat Covid-19 together.

RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS STATEMENT: Statement from Bishop Gerard Bergie following the discovery at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School on the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation.

SUNDAY MASS:   Screening and public health protocols are in place. 

It is Diocesan policy that everyone attending Mass or other Services in the Church is required to sign the Contact Tracing Book when entering the Church and to wear a face mask. In view of the rapid spread and grave threat of new COVID-19 variants, any parishioner who is unable to wear a mandatory face covering should not attend any church service. Voluntary compliance with this basic public health directive reflects our fundamental belief in the sanctity of all human life, gives honour to God and demonstrates love for our neighbours. Please stay home if you have a fever or are feeling unwell and seek medical attention. The Sunday Mass celebrations will be live-streamed from the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria at 11:30 am. Go to "Live-streamed Mass from the Cathedral" on www.saintcd.com or click here.

FUNDRAISER FOR OUR TRACTOR: During this different and difficult time, financial pressures are constantly changing for everyone. Our Church has incurred the unexpected expense of replacing our stolen tractor. If you would like to make a donation to offset the cost of the new tractor, click on  the green "Donate Now" button at the top of the page and select "Tractor Fund" . Everyone can do a small part to make a big part happen.

Grandparents_Day.jpg

WORLD DAY FOR GRANDPARENTS AND THE ELDERLY: One day before the Feast Day of Saints Joachim and Anne, grandparents of Jesus, Pope Francis established the first World Day of Grandparents and Elderly (July 25, 2021). Pope Francis chose the theme "I am with you every day" (Mt. 28.20) to express the closeness of the Lord and

the Church to every elderly person; and as a topic of hope that all persons - young and old - can share together. To learn more click here or visit the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life website. "Elderly people, on a social level, should not be considered as a burden, but for what they really are, that is, a resource and a wealth. They are the memory of a people! " (Pope Francis, Rome, 16 December 2019 )   One way to give a concrete expression of our love and care is to visit our grandparents and the elderly living alone in our community.  The World Day message can be shared on social media with the hashtag #IamWithYouAlways.
