Important Holy Week Update

Dear parishioners and friends, 

The Quebec Government made a decree on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of our Lord that all places of worship would be allowed to increase their capacities to a maximum of 250 people, of course all while respecting the two meter distancing restrictions. 

This great news comes just in time for our Holy Week and our Easter celebrations. In reviewing the capacities of our parish and to ensure the health and safety of all those who would be entering our spiritual home, we are happy to announce an increase in the spots available for the many upcoming celebrations. The mass times will remain the same but we will have an increase in capacity from 25 people to 75 people.

Here is the link to Register for Mass:

This is how it breaks down: 

Palm Sunday: 

Registration will open up at 10am on Friday March 26th. We invite you to register for one of the masses offered: 

Saturday March 27th at 4pm and 5:30pm

If you are unable or uncomfortable with the idea of coming to Mass we will have a special time designated for the distribution of Palms and Holy Communion on Palm Sunday March 28th from 11.15 am to 12:30pm. Registration is required.
