Health Guidelines

We look forward to welcoming everyone at Christmas. Masks are required to be worn by everyone ages 5 and older (per the latest provincial health order), but vaccine passports will not be checked. Masses will be filled to 50% capacity; no reservations are required. There will be room for all to attend in person with a priest celebrating Mass, whether in the Church or in the chapel we have set up. Wherever we're seated, let us be glad we are able to celebrate Mass together in person for the first time in two years!

Christmas Eve Mass at 10 p.m. will also be livestreamed for those who are unable to attend in person for health reasons.

Christmas Collection

Advent Reflection and social

Friday, December 10 at 7:00 pm

As we prepare for Christ's birth, let's come together to pray, reflect, and spend time with one another. Whether it's your first time back to the church in awhile or you've been coming regularly again, you are most welcome.

Please note there will be no Boxing Day Skating Party this year, so the Advent reflection is the main opportunity to socialize with other parishioners this season!
