Happy 3rd Sunday of Ordinary Time.
Our Lord continues to call us this week to Come and See (see last week), to realize our vocation to know Him better, love Him more, follow Him more closely as missionary-disciples, and to make Him known and loved by all. Today, Our Lord invites us all to continue our ministry as fishers of all people! Click here for Pastor’s Blog

New Health Measures
As we know now, starting December 26, religious services, weddings and funerals will be limited to 10 people indoors or outdoors with physical distancing as long as we are in Lockdown (grey). Even for these smaller services the COVID-19 protocols need to be observed. Baptisms require the same controls. Therefore, we will be livestreaming daily mass (including Sundays) at 8 AM, from St. Finnan’s Parish (available on our homepage, or via our YouTube channel.
The Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall also encourages us to be open for private prayer when possible. A simple registration process (online, email, and by phone) to allow a max of 9 people (+1 priest, me) to attend our daily celebrations….click here to access info. The Sacrament of Confession will also be available before and after our daily masses.
At this time, in person indoor meetings or non-religious-service gatherings are not allowed during the time of lockdown. Finally, please continue to follow these emails, and updates via the website. Let us continue to pray for our families, and parishioners, and ask the intercession of the Holy Family so that we may continue to be open to the Christmas presence in our lives. We continue to be careful, but hopeful!
