At this time when the corona virus (COVID-19) presents a major health challenge to all, the Archdiocese of Ottawa has recommended precautions be taken in all parishes. In keeping with these recommendations:
- the greeting of peace and the reception of Holy Communion from the chalice (except for those who are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease) have been suspended during our liturgies.
- we remind parishioners that if you are unwell, you should stay at home – the Sunday obligation does not bind those who are ill.
- we suggest you follow the precautions recommended in the regular flu season: wash your hands, cough into your sleeve and avoid touching your face. Please note that hand sanitizers have been placed at the entrances to the church.
Please keep in your prayers our brothers and sisters throughout the world who have been affected by this virus.
