COVID 19 Statement (updated March 30, 2020)

As per direction from Bishop Crosby: Until further notice, no masses will be celebrated publicly, including all weekend masses, weekday masses and funerals. In their homes, the faithful are to be united in prayer with their Fr Don who will privately celebrate daily mass for the intentions of the people of our parish .
The  Bishop has dispensed the faithful from the obligation to participate in the Sunday Mass, until we are again able to assemble again in accord with the directives of health authorities.


VIDEOS of Father Don's weekend masses will be published on the MASS SCHEDULE page. Links will be posted by 5PM on Saturdays.


If you are able, please consider supporting our parish here


Information about Holy Week celebrations is also on the Mass Schedule page. Other online daily masses are available here. If you'd like the sacrament of Holy Confession, please contact Fr. Don. 


The bells in churches in the Hamilton diocese, including SJB, will ring out each day at 9:00 a.m; 12 Noon; 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to invite all who hear the bells to pray (an “Our Father”) for our healthcare workers dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.


Fr Don asks that, as a family, you pray; pray the rosary, make a spiritual communion with The Lord or perhaps pray Psalm 91, in hope that the world quickly recovers from this pandemic and we soon reunite in communion with each other and the Lord. Fr. Don has also recorded this video showing how to pray The Chaplet of Mercy.  


If anybody needs a visit from Fr. Don for reasons of illness, please contact him
