CALENDAR OF EVENTS:
All events cancelled until further notice.
As you know, everything is changing rapidly and new clearer directives from the Porcupine Health Unit have been issued on March 17, 2020 concerning churches. Our diocese is therefore following these new directives concerning Masses and all gatherings.
As of March 19th, ALL MASSES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
For your information, please review the following most recent directives/communique from the Porcupine Health Unit :
April 1, 2020
In the context of the new corona virus COVID-19 epidemic, we are mostly preoccupied with the health and well-being of the parishioners of the Holy Name of Jesus parish and we pray that the Lord protects us all and very particularly those of us who are vulnerable or who care for the sick.
We have the delicate task of addressing the question of the financial impact of the suspension of Sunday Liturgies because of this pandemic. As you well know, our parish relies enormously on the Sunday collection to pay its expenses. Furthermore, our other sources of revenue are also diminishing at this time.
We understand that we are living in a time of crisis and we are all touched in one way or another by COVID-19. In prayer, we invite you to evaluate how you can continue to support our parish to ensure that it can carry on—maybe some of you will be able to do a little bit more while others need to scale back.
You can do your part in one of many ways:
Let us continue to practice solidarity during these trying times and participate in our own way in the healing ministry of Christ.
Rev. John Okoh
