Returning To Church
Welcome Back To Our Lady Of Czestochowa, Saint Mary’s And Saint Patrick’s Church.
Welcome To Our New Normal!
As we come together again for the celebrations of Mass and other liturgies, we must be mindful of how this can be accomplished safely and ensure as much as possible the wellbeing of each other.
As we move towards reopening, the following priorities must be respected:
- The health and safety of the Faithfull, clergy, staff and volunteers
- Proactive measures to avoid the potential of a second wave of the virus
- We have a responsibility to care for one another and protect our parishes
Therefore, we as the Michaelite Fathers, will do all we can to provide best possible pastoral service in this very difficult time. We realize that not being able to celebrate Mass and not having access to the sacraments has been very painful for all of us.
We are all eager to resume services and celebrations of Masses and sacraments. With great joy we announce that our churches will be open for Mass on Saturday/Sunday June 20/21.
There will be some changes that may cause some discomfort and inconvenience and you may not be seated at your usual spot or attend the Mass at the usual time. Therefore, we respectfully ask for your patience, forgiveness and prayer – as we begin this process of re-opening our churches.

At this time of pandemic when we need to keep physical distance, our bishop Ronald Peter Fabbro gave the permission to all the priests ministering to our diocese to use The Rite of General Absolution for the next 3 months. The Penance celebrations with General Absolution will be announced at our churches when the Masses resume.
Approaching these uncertain days with a spirit of kindness and generosity to one another will help us all as we navigate the path ahead.
Parish Office Reopening protocols
The Government of Ontario’s announcement that many areas of the province can commence “Stage 3” of reopening on July 17 means we can start to plan the reopening of parish offices to the public. In order to do so safely, the Diocese is preparing a series of protocols to guide this process. They are currently being reviewed by the Episcopal Council and will be distributed once we have their input. Please do not open your parish office(s) until you have received the protocols, reviewed them with your team and can comply with them.
Further updates will be communicated as soon as possible.

We don’t pretend to be better than anyone else, but are determined to be the best we can be. We are grateful, proud and humbled by those who have gone before us and united with them and each other by our common faith and love of Jesus Christ.
