From Our Parish
A Message For You
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, our Parish, like many others, have had to make some changes to our ways of work. Our website and emailed Bulletin are your main sources of information at present. Don’t received an emailed Bulletin? Sign up for one here. Refer to it often, as it is continually being updated. Please check on your fellow Parishioners, especially the elderly or those who do not have access to the internet. Give them a call and let them know the latest news. In the meantime, we will try to answer your most frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Is the Parish office open?
At present, the Office is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. This could change at any time if AHS restrictions/recommendations change. Contact the office (voicemail or email) for more details.
Is the Church open?
The Church is open for Mass; however you must register to attend. When the office is open, the church will also be open for private prayer
I hear that the Grocery Card Fundraiser is up and running. How do I purchase Grocery cards?
The Grocery Card Fundraiser will continue to be on sale after Sunday Masses. They will also be available for sale on Fridays from 10:00 am to 11:30 am from the Parish office
My children miss Children’s Liturgy. Is there something that I can do?
Check out the ‘Children’s Liturgy’ (under Ministries) on the website. We have posted a number of activities for the children, that are appropriate for their Faith Formation. We had a successful Children’s Liturgy via Zoom during Advent. We hope to have another in Lent. Watch the Bulletin and/or the website for updates.
I want to continue to support the Parish with my Sunday donation. What can I do?
There are a couple of ways to do this. Please visit our Donation page for complete information on how to support our Parish.
I usually make a couple of loaves of sandwiches for Sandwich weekend as I know that there is still a need to feed the hungry. So what is happening with our monthly Sandwich weekend?
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 (Corona-Virus) situation the Monthly Sandwich Project is cancelled until further notice.
I hear that our St Vincent de Paul Society is continuing to respond to Food hamper requests and that the number of requests has been increasing at this time. What can I do to help?
Thank you for reaching out to others. You can mail a cheque to the Parish (make it out to St. Vincent de Paul Society, so we know where it has to go) and we will ensure that they receive the funds. Additionally, you can make a donation through the National St. Vincent de Paul website. See also the ‘Donate’ page on our website.
I have a Mass Intention scheduled. Will the Mass be said for my Intention?
Yes. Father Ben will be saying Mass daily, although some Masses are still private. If your Mass Intention is scheduled for one of our Public Masses (Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:00 am or Sundays at 9:00 am or 11:00 am), you are welcome to attend but please register for Mass to ensure that the church is not over capacity on that day.
Check out ‘This week in the Parish’ for the current Mass Intentions.
The office will continue to schedule Mass
Intentions, if you contact us.
I don’t have email but want to know what is going on. What do I do?
Our website will be the best source of information, as we are trying to update it whenever there is something new.
If you really need a phone call, let us know and we will do our best to keep you informed. You can leave a voicemail message with the office.
The office staff is monitoring and responding to voicemail messages.
