Greetings of Peace and Hope in Christ Jesus,
As you might have heard in the News, Places of Worship in Toronto are now allowed 15% of the church capacity and the Archdiocese has allowed Our Catholic Communities to resume celebrations of Public Masses effective Monday March 15th Thanks to God, who has answered our Prayers!
In this regard, our church starting yesterday, Monday 15th, the Weekday & Weekend Masses will resume following the regular schedule: That is;
Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 7:00pm
Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday at 9:00am
Weekend Sunday Masses– Saturday Vigil mass at 5:15pm, Sunday at 9am, 12:15pm & 5:30pm
For the Weekday Masses, you Do Not need to call to reserve a seat; our experience is that only 30 to 35 people come for Mass on a regular basis.
For the Weekend Sunday Masses, however, you still have to call or email the office for seat reservation; The Church has Room for only 39 Parishioners; Respecting the 6ft distancing requirement. The occupancy however could be extended up to 50 people if there were family members who could sit together. This 50 count is within the 15% capacity required of Our Church.
We still have to observe the safety protocols required; wearing mask at all times, hand sanitizing and sitting in the green-marked pews only.
Let us all continue to Pray, Fast and do works of charity in observance of this Holy Season of Lent.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
Please, don't come to church if you have any symptoms enlisted on the Ontario Public Health Guidance or you have been exposed to people who have tested postive in the last 14 days!
