THANK YOU! We are touched and humbled by the generosity of the many faithful parish members who support the work of the church through the kindness of donations. Your gifts make a difference.

Important Update on Covid-19

April 26th, 2021

Unfortunately our churches still remain closed during this “stay at home order” and emergency lock down. I know this is difficult for everyone, and I again ask for your patience and understanding. Everyone wants to go back to church and regular Sunday Mass or weekday Mass, however, as we see in our province, the situation is rather dire in
many parts of the province. We must maintain our attention to following the safety protocols, to stay at home and remain with our immediate family only, to maintain physical distancing, to wear a mask, to wash our hands regularly and to work from home when possible. Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible also.

Thank you for your continued support to our parishes both spiritually in prayer and economically in your weekly donations. We ask the Lord to guide us through this time and to lead us to safety and gathering once again as a faith family. May the Lord bless you and your families and keep them safe.

Sincerely,
Bishop Fred Colli
Bishop of Thunder Bay
