FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK
Welcome Back to worship! Nice to have you back.
We welcome Rev. Ambroise Tshiaba Ntumba, who arrived this past Wednesday, 15th of July. We look forward to him enriching our Parish Family with his ministry.
A profile about Fr. Ambroise will be published later so that we can get to know him better. We hope that Fr. Ambroise will feel at home in our parish and enjoy his ministry.
Thank you to all our generous parishioners who are donating to support our parish.
May God bless you and replenish all your sacrifices.
Please keep following safety procedures in and around the church to help us keep open.
DIRECTIVES FOR OUR SAFETY
We ask that you continue to do a self-assessment before coming to Mass. If you feel unwell or have been in contact with someone who has Covid-19, please do not attend Mass.
Please do not remove your mask during Mass. Those with certain medical conditions are not required to wear a mask. If you need to cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow.
We know some people have a chronic cough and it is allergy season. Please do not worry or discriminate to those around you. It is natural to cough and sneeze.
For Communion, an usher will be present and will usher one row at a time to the front. For those on the King St. side, please receive Communion from the Priest or Minister on the same side as where you were sitting. Do not cross to the other side. Communion must be received in the hand, then remove your mask, consume the Host and replace your mask before walking to your seat.
Offertory envelopes will be collected as you exit the Church at the end of Mass.
Parishioners sitting nearest to the doors should exit first, and please remember to physically distance inside and outside the Church.
If you have questions, please ask the ushers.
We are not able to gather in the foyers or body of the church before or after Mass, so please leave the building as soon as Mass is over as it needs to be cleaned and sanitized after each use.
We are always in need of volunteers, as it takes many people in order for all of us to share in the celebration of Mass. Please call the parish office if you are willing to help at one of our Masses.
Thank you for adhering to these safety directives as we work together during this time of reopening.
