The Province of Ontario has been under lockdown measures since December 26, 2020. This means that in-person Mass will be suspended until further notice. 

During the lockdown period, Mass will be livestreamed to our Facebook page and YouTube channel on Sundays at 11:00 am. You can find the current YouTube link on our website or under the "Week at a Glance" section of this bulletin.
OFFICE HOURS: In hopes of reducing the spread of COVID-19, the staff are mainly working remotely. Please know that the voice mail is checked regularly and that we will endeavour to return your phone call in a timely manner. Should you wish to contact a member of the team directly, emails are provided at the bottom of this newsletter.
ON THE MOVE:  Over the holidays, Bishop Fabbro announced that Father Michael Bechard has been appointed Pastor of the new Family of Parishes comprising the communities of St. George and St. John the Divine. The appointment takes effect July 5, 2021. Please remember all those who will be affected by this move and continue to pray for those engaged in the search for a new Director of Campus Ministry at King's University College.  

DIRECTOR OF CAMPUS MINISTRY SEARCH: King’s University College is searching for an ordained Roman Catholic priest (in good standing with their local Ordinary and/or Religious Superior) for the position of Director of Campus Ministry. Applicants who are laypersons and meet the required qualifications will also be considered. The job posting can be found here.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: A number of newcomers have expressed the desire to meet with members of the parish for fellowship and for conversation. They desire both community and the opportunity to practise their conversational English. The latter will be necessary as they seek to make London their home. If you can be of assistance, please contact Deacon Victor Salazar at or by calling the office at 519-963-1477.

ARCTIC VISIONS 2021 CALENDAR: We have received a case of calendars from Bishop Jon Hansen, CSsR with images of his travels across his diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith. The suggested donation is $20.00. Your donation will assist in keeping the churches in the Northwest Territories in operation during the harsh winter months. To reserve a calendar, please call the office at 519-963-1477.  

JOB OPPORTUNITY: Romero House has a wonderful and unique program which gives young adults an opportunity to do significant work, making a real difference in the lives of people in great need.

To make an appointment, please contact Jim Panchaud or by contacting The Office of Campus Ministry at 519-963-1477.
Financial Support Needed
For many of us, the restrictions brought about by the pandemic have been little more than a distraction or an inconvenience, but for the poor and marginalized in our city, their needs have only increased. Many charitable organizations have had to close their doors and others are not able to meet the needs of their clients. The same is true for those that are new to our country. Those things that they need to access for survival are beyond their reach. Our parish has an obligation to respond. At this time, we are desperately in need of your financial contributions. 

Click here to set up your donation. If you require assistance, please contact Lisa Caeiro. Your donations can be directed towards either "REFUGEE" (those coming from elsewhere) or "SOCIAL ACTION" (those from the area). 

Soon, we will need people who will help tutor, mentor and offer hospitality to the stranger among us. Any inquires or concerns can be addressed to Father Michael Bechard. We continue to pray and trust that God will grant the increase.
