Dear beloved Parishioners and friends,
I believe it’s now a common knowledge that the new provincial Covid-19 restrictions come into effect on Friday, February 12, 2021. The city is currently under code orange alert. Therefore, places of worship will now be able to have community gatherings for Mass.
Consequently, there can be gathering of up to fifty (50) people at any time for weekday or Sunday public Masses.
We will continue to make available for everyone most current information about Covid-19 guidelines and directives. Always tune in!
As challenging as this time before us is, I implore everyone to keep hope alive. Do NOT panic, and do not despair. All will be good and well at the end. The current restrictions are for the health and well-being of our greater community. Therefore, let’s observe it with a faith-filled and compassionate care and response.
Peace and blessings.
God is Good, all the time!
“Brothers and sisters: Do not worry about anything, but in everything by
Prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made
Known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding
Will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus”. (Cf: Philippians 4: 6-7).

7:00pm Evening Mass & safe distribution of ashes
All Mass times are limited to a maximum of 50 people, in accordance with directives. (See below.)
EXTENDING the RITUAL of RECEIVING ASHES
Due to the limitations & restrictions of people allowed to participate at Mass in the church, Fr. Chrys will EXTEND the RITUAL of the IMPOSITION of ASHES in a safe manner for any Parishioners & Friends, inviting you to come through the parking lot entrance to the church between the hours of:
10:30am to 2:00pm on Ash Wednesday to receive ashes

On both Thursday & Friday, Feb. 18th & 19th, while it won’t be Ash Wednesday, Fr. Chrys will also offer the opportunity to receive ashes at:
10am Mass limited to 50 people on both these days, again with the imposition of ashes and ... extending the time for ritual of the imposition of ashes between 10:30am to 2:00pm on these 2 days as well.
