Dear friends in Christ,

With the new restrictions in place, we will revert to providing times of private prayer in the church on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. You can sign up for a 20-minute interval for private prayer, which will conclude with the opportunity to receive Holy Communion.  

 

You will have time to pray for a few minutes while seated or kneeling in the pews before the Communion Service proper.  Our musicians will continue to add beauty to this time of prayer.

 

Some details of the Communion Service are listed below.  Since we can only accommodate 6 people at a time, we ask that individuals do not sign up every week, but allow others the opportunity to attend.

 

We hope that this current restriction on public Masses will not last too long.  The schedule for the 20-minute sessions is as before: 

Wednesday:  8:15 & 8:45 am

Saturday: 4:30 & 5:00 pm

Sunday: 9:00, 9:30, 11:00 & 11:30 am

To register visit www.stjohnsrc.ca - under “Private Prayer”, or if you do not have access to a computer, contact the office. 416.698.1105, Tuesdays after 11 am.

 

Yours in Christ ……………….…Fr. John-Mark Missio
