Due to the new government restrictions, Effective Monday 19 April, St. Francis de Sales parish will be open for private prayer from Monday to Thursday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. We are only allowed to have 10 individuals at a time including clergy and staff/ volunteers in the Church. Please be mindful of the time you give to private prayer in the parish as there are other people who would like the opportunity to do the same.
Starting 24 April, we will be having Communion Services. Only 8 people are allowed to attend each 10 minute Communion Service. Please note, this is not the celebration of Mass. To attend this Communion Service, you will have to register on Eventbrite. To access Eventbrite, please visit our website at www.stfrancisdesales.ca This Communion Service is limited only to Saturday evening and Sunday at specific times. This does not extend to the other days of the week. For the times of the Communion Service, please see Eventbrite. If you are late for your Communion Service the entrance door to the parish will be locked and you will have to register for another date and time. Out of love for neighbour, we encourage you to register once every two weeks to allow other parishioners to attend.
The Sacrament of Confession will be offered on Saturdays from 4 pm to 4:45 pm in the North and/or South Rooms.
These times for Communion Service and Private Prayer are subject to change based on restrictions in Ontario and by the Archdiocese of Toronto. Please keep checking our parish website for continual updates.
If you would like to read more about these changes, please see the link below for the letter from Thomas Cardinal Collins addressed to all the faithful of the Archdiocese of Toronto.
