And Now a Word From Our Pastor

UPDATE- September 13, 2020

Praised be Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen.


Mary, Virgin Most Prudent, Pray for Us.
Thank You and God bless. We keep one another in prayer.
With love and a prayer
Fr. Dennis

We may pray this Act of Spiritual Communion when we are not able

to be physically present at Mass:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen

August 6 and 7 marked the 75th anniversaries of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

News From The Society of St. Vincent de Paul 

SSVP continues to assist individuals and families in our community. Unfortunately, we are unable to stand with our Donation Box at the end of Mass due to Covid-19 restrictions.  

Please consider making a donation to help our neighbours in need especially during these challenging times. You can do this by placing an envelope directed to SSVP in the collection box at the back of the Main Hall while at Mass.
If you have not returned to mass yet, please mail your donation in to the parish office. Cheques are made payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul and tax receipts are available to those who identify themselves. Mail to:
