Registration to Attend Mass in Person

As of April 8, 2021, the province of Ontario has issued a stay-at-home order. We are still permitted to have our church open up to a maximum capacity of 15% (assuming maintenance of all the proper COVID-19 protocols, mask-wearing, and social distancing) for Masses and religious services. 

Please see the "Register for Mass" menu on this website if you would like to register to attend Mass in person. Registration is required for all Sunday morning Masses.

 

Due to lower attendance numbers, registration is not required for our weekday Masses or for the Sunday evening 7 pm Mass. Neither is registration required for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

New Faith Study via Zoom
on the Holy Eucharist
beginning February 4

Beginning February 4, Fr. Shroff will be leading a new faith study on the subject of the Holy Eucharist, following one of the works of St. Thomas Aquinas. The study will take place over Zoom, on Thursday evenings at 7 pm. This will not be a liturgical study, but a theological/spiritual one. The goal is to help you to contemplate more deeply the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist. The study will nourish your intellect (mind) and will (heart) in a way in which only St. Thomas Aquinas can do. 

The title of the faith study is:  "Contemplating the Eucharistic Mystery with St. Thomas Aquinas." It will be hosted by the Marian Devotional Movement (MDM) based locally here in Ottawa. The sessions will be live-streamed and also uploaded to the MDM YouTube channel for viewing at any time.

If you are interested in attending, please contact our parish office for more information and for the Zoom link.
