Thank You, Volunteers!
Since we re-opened last summer, our volunteers have worked tirelessly each week at every Mass to keep our church spaces safe for everyone to continue to worship. They have also been called in for extra duty for baptisms, funerals, weddings, 1st Communion, and Diocesan celebrations. Without their dedication and extraordinary efforts, none of this could take place. As we now observe increasing COVID-19 cases in our community as well as the current Stay at Home order, they will continue to be ever diligent in all their duties. Please continue to do your part: pre-screening at home, answering the screening questions at entry, observe 6 feet at all times, follow all directions of our volunteers with movement in our churches, and exiting when asked as after each mass they must clean and sanitise the church to be ready for the next Mass. Your cooperation and support with all of our volunteers are greatly appreciated.

Amoris Laetitia Family Year
On March 19, 2021, the Church celebrated five years since the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia on the beauty and joy of love in the family. On the same day, Pope Francis launched the Amoris Laetitia Family Year which will conclude on June 26, 2022, on the occasion of the Xth World Meeting of Families in Rome with the Holy Father. The Family & Youth Ministry Office of our Diocese will be offering various ways to mark the year. More information will be shared as the year continues. Click here to read the Pope’s document.

Updates from St. Vincent de Paul Society | April 2021
During the past month of March, eight teams from your parish's St. Vincent de Paul Society made 72 calls, servicing 94 adults and 10 children by distributing $3490 in grocery gift cards. This was only possible because of your spiritual and financial support. If you can also contribute some time to help in this work, please call 519-434-5235 for further information. We currently are facing an increased number of requests; this month there were 22 people asking for help that we have not previously assisted.
