Christmas Mass

Please note that there will be no weekday masses the week of December 27. 

We’ll be following all COVID protocols.

Pastor’s Blog – Surprised by Joy

When you hear the scripture readings and Gospel reading at Mass, do you “leap for joy?”  If not, don’t blame the lecturer or priest, rather look inside yourself.  What are you doing to grow in friendship with Jesus?

Everyone is Invited! 

This week, we dropped off ~4000 postcards to our neighbourly family in Alexandria, Monkland, Apple Hill, Green Valley, and Maxville inviting them to join us for Christmas Mass. We hope and pray that many will come to celebrate the birth of our Lord. 

Candlelight Christmas Concert

Our Candelight Christmas Concert was a huge success. Thank you to all the musicians and volunteers who made this possible. Special thank you to Amy and Liz for all their hard work putting this together. 

Did you miss the concert? OR, did you love it so much you’d like to see it again?! 

You can check out the concert below.
