“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return.” 

Luke 6:35

Seventh Sunday In Ordinary Time

Important Update

Archbishop Marcel Damphousse has decided to remove the requirement from the Worship Safe Guidelines that called for the collection of names and contact information of those who attend religious services (effective immediately). This matches the move by the Province of Ontario that no longer requires restaurants, meeting spaces and other similar facilities to keep the names and contact information of patrons. Some parishes may choose to continue to collect this information.

Indoor or outdoor Meetings and Gatherings are also no longer required to collect names and contact information (Section 2 and 3 of January 28, 2022, Memo).

Reminder 

As of Monday, January 17, every person over the age of 2 who attends Holy Mass must wear a mask

Medical exemptions from wearing a mask at Mass will no longer be accepted. A face shield will not be considered an acceptable substitute for a mask.

Please pray for our 1st communion class!

We pray for the children preparing to receive their first communion. May God richly bless them and their families, so that in seeking You they would find true joy and peace.’
