Great News!

Beginning next Sunday May 23, 2021, we will have a “Parking Lot Mass” 

at 9 am in the parking lot behind the church.

You will be able to attend this Mass while remaining in your vehicles.

Fr. will offer Mass outside on a covered stage trailer so he will be visible to those in their cars. (We thank Cavanagh Construction for their generosity in loaning us this trailer.)

To hear the Mass all you will need to do is switch your ignition key to “Accessories”  and turn your car radio to 99.5 FM.

Please note: there will be “parking ushers” that will tell you where to park so that we can accommodate as many vehicles as possible. We are hoping to be able to accommodate about 40-50 vehicles in the parking lot and on the street beside it.

Communion time, Fr. and the Eucharistic Ministers will move from car to car to distribute Communion through your car windows.

At the end of Mass, we ask that you please wait for the parking ushers to let you know when it is your turn to leave the lot.

For those that prefer to watch the streamed Sunday Mass at 11 am, that will continue on our Facebook site as usual.

Please let those without email know of this news.

Women’s Morning of Reflection Saturday June 5, 2021 from 9 am to 12 pm

“Rejoice in the Lord!”

The Women’s Fall Retreat team is presenting a Pentecost – Morning of Reflection on Saturday June 5, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Women of all ages are invited to join us to reflect on the JOY that marked the wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit to the early church at Pentecost.

The keynote presentation will be given by Sarah Damm, a published Catholic writer and speaker from Minnesota, U.S.A. Sarah began her professional life working in communications in the Catholic education sector. As a busy mother of six, she continues to be engaged in women’s ministry. Sarah writes for Blessed Is She, CatholicMom.com and WINE: Women in the New Evangelization. Learn more about Sarah at sarahdamm.com. We are looking forward to having Sarah join our group of Canadian women for our Pentecost -Morning of Reflection.

Gather with us, along with Fr. Brian McNally, our WFR Spiritual Director, for a morning of faith-deepening talks, inspiring music and small group break out sessions. You will have the opportunity to connect with other women who are followers of Christ. Join us as we consider what it means to “Rejoice in the Lord.”

To register for this session, go to https://pentecost-morningofreflection.eventbrite.ca. The cost for the morning is $20.00 and will be presented on the Zoom platform. Registrants will receive the Zoom link the week before the event by email.
