“And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age”

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations”

While looking intently at the sky during the ascension of Christ, the Apostles were still unsure of what was ahead for them. Jesus declares the Apostles’ mission and assures them that the Holy Spirit will guide and lead them as his witnesses to the ends of the earth. As his disciples, we share in this mission, emboldened by the knowledge that, He is always with us and confident that He will come again.

Father Jan has written a letter to the parish outlining the latest on the COVID pandemic and how it affects our community. There is also an update on the building fund. To read the letter, please click HERE.

During this time of isolation parishioners have asked how they can make their weekly donations to the Church. Pre-Authorized Debit can be arranged by calling the office. You can also drop off your collection envelope in the mail box at the office door during office hours.

Thank you to those who have called the office to start pre-authorized donations, or dropped off their contribution. It is very much appreciated!

A car load of thanks to everyone who joined the Birthday drive by parade for me on Monday. What an amazing, uplifting get together! It was so heart warming to see everyone waving at each other, and a great reminder of how strong our church family bonds are. Thank you all so much for coming out.

Love, Father Jan

Thank you to everyone who has called or emailed the office to sign up for attending Mass. At this time the 9 AM mass is at the 50 person maximum. There are a number of openings available for Saturday at 5 PM and Sunday at 11 AM. If you wish to attend a weekend Mass, you must sign up and be on an attendance list. We are working through our parish list to contact those who have not called in.

Fr. Jan is hopeful that we can celebrate Mass on May 30 and 31.

A reminder that only the parishioners necessary for the live-streaming are expected to attend the current Sunday 10 AM Mass.

With the recycling centre closed, bottles and cans are building up in our homes! If you are able to hold on to your recycling, our bottle team would be very grateful. If not we will take them at the office. We will let people know as soon as we can start up our Saturday collection.

St. Vincent de Paul - Although it may be some time until you once again see Vincentians holding the Silent Begging crosses, we would like you to know that emergency food deliveries continue, with the need to feed greater than ever in our community. Please make your cheques out to Saint Vincent de Paul and mail your envelope to St. Patrick’s Parish or your contribution can be placed in the mailbox at the office door during office hours.
