Change in Saturday Afternoon Mass Time

As has been mentioned at the Saturday Mass and at some of the weekday Masses over the past couple of weeks, a number of requests have been made to move the Saturday evening Mass to an earlier time during the dark and cold months. Any feedback received following those announcements has been favourable to the change. Effective Saturday, December 14, Mass will be begin at 4 pm. The plan is to resume the 5 pm time in the spring. Note this is for the Saturday Mass only. The Saturday Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated from 2:45 to 3:30, effective that date.

St. Vincent de Paul

ST. DUNSTAN’S ST. VINCENT DE PAUL would like to thank all parishioners who donate non perishable food items on the 1st Sunday of each month to help keep our pantry stocked for those in need of food. Since the ban on using plastic bags has come into effect, parishioners have used their own cloth bags when donating food. As of this week we have a yellow bin at the entrance of the church with cloth grocery bags that can be taken to replace any bags that you drop off with food in them. Thanks for your generosity.
