Welcome

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ***

EFFECTIVE MONDAY APRIL 19th, 2021, THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO HAS ENFORCED FURTHER MEASURES TO THEIR “STAY-AT-HOME” ORDER TO KEEP ONTARIANS SAFE AND TO CURB THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS AND ITS VARIANTS.

THIS HAS NECESSITATED THAT ALL CHURCHES IN THE DIOCESE OF HAMILTON SUSPEND PUBLIC MASSES TILL MAY 20th, 2021. AS A RESULT, THERE WILL BE NO LITURGIES DURING THIS TIME. THIS INCLUDES:

 

ALL WEEKEND AND WEEKDAY MASSES

ALL BAPTISMS

ALL FIRST COMMUNION CEREMONIES

 

FIRST COMMUNIONS AND BAPTISMS WILL BE CELEBRATED WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. WHEN FURTHER INFORMATION IS ISSUED BY THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO AND THE DIOCESE OF HAMILTON AFTER MAY 20th, WE WILL REASSESS HOW WE WILL PROCEED FORWARD.

MOST REVEREND DOUGLAS CROSBY OMI, THE BISHOP OF HAMILTON, HAS GRANTED A DISPENSATION FROM THE OBLIGATION TO ATTEND SUNDAY MASS FOR THE DURATION OF THE PANDEMIC, DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT PROTOCOLS. IT IS ADVISED THAT ALL CATHOLICS PARTICIPATE IN THE CELEBRATION OF THE MASS VIRTUALLY ON THE LORD’S DAY. YOU MAY WATCH MASS ON TELEVISION (SALT AND LIGHT TV – https://slmedia.org/ OR THE DAILY TV MASS – https://dailytvmass.com). YOU ALSO MAY GO TO https://holyrosaryparish.ca TO VIEW MASS ON THEIR PARISH YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE PARISH OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL AT LEAST MAY 20th. MESSAGES AND EMAILS WILL BE RETRIEVED AND FATHER JIM OR ONE OF THE OFFICE STAFF WILL GET BACK TO YOU IN A TIMELY MANNER.

PLEASE BE ASSURED OF MY PRAYERS DURING THESE TURBULENT TIMES AND PLEASE STAY SAFE.
