News – March 19, 2020:

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 AND PARISH EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 
    • For your information, please review the following most recent directives/communique from the Porcupine Health Unit :

COVID-19 PANDEMIC PRECAUTIONS

  • Sponsors – Thank you to the people / companies / groups who help us defray the cost of printing our parish leaflet by sponsoring it. The Leaflet is $ 20 / week and the Sanctuary Lamp is $ 5 / week. Envelopes are at the back of the church. 
  • Mass intentions – Church standards require that we not keep more Mass intentions than we can pray for a year. Thus, since we have an additional intention of Masses from the “Funeral Offerings”, we share the intentions with priests who have none.
