Weekend masses in Erin
St Peter Oustic
Father Don also celebrates Mass at 11:30 AM (19 people) Sunday at St. Peter’s Church, Oustic. Go west 18 km from Erin on County Road 124 to Brucedale. Turn north on Fifth Line and go 7.8 km to Oustic.
On June 6's recording Fr. Don misspoke about reopening the churches in the Hamilton Diocese. At the end of the mass, he said the churches will not open until "Sept 1". That is what he thought he read. In fact the letter he got said until "STEP 1". He apologizes for the mistake to both his parishioners and to the diocesan office.
Please consider supporting our parish.

Typical St. John Brebeuf Weekday mass schedule (starting June 14):
If you are in need of Reconciliation, please call me.
St John de Brebeuf: 3:30-4:30 Saturday afternoon
St Peters: Following 11:30 am Mass
OR... Catch me prior to a weekday mass, but not 5 minutes before mass begins.
In Erin, please use the Reconciliation Room. Keep a distance from me. If you are with any symptoms we’ll do the sacrament outside or better still wait until you are better. If I get sick then masses will have to be cancelled (under the Bishop’s orders).
Following the 7pm mass on the first Tuesday of every month I will offer the anointing of the sick to our faithful. Of course I already do this when I visit the sick in their homes.
Others may avail themselves of this powerful sacrament if sickness is weighing them down. It is particularly important in a time when the fear of the Covid virus may increase risks in those already compromised by other health conditions. One must be a baptized Catholic, be of the age of reason, have “health issues” and is in the state of grace. If one is in serious sin it is advised they receive the sacrament of penance prior to the anointing. I wish to offer this to the wider congregation because the sacrament confers healing as well as peace.
