2021 Sacraments

Dear Parishioners of St. Thomas the Apostle parish,

Hope you are doing well and keeping safe.

As you might be aware that Ontario is going to have three steps of reopening.  Step one is scheduled to be on June 11. As per the information that I have received in step one Church cannot have more than 10 people. The Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation will take place in early October 2021. I know it is hard to constantly change the dates.  Because of many changes and uncertainties we will move our celebrations to early October 2021. New dates will be decided and communicated during our principals’ planning meeting in later part of August. Moving the celebrations to the fall might enable us to have more people attend our celebrations. Let us hope for that.

During summer months if any family wishes to celebrate their Son/daughter’s First Communion or Confirmation you are welcome to do so during our weekend Masses. Kindly call me to arrange this celebration.

Those who did not receive their Sacrament of Reconciliation you can do so during our weekend Masses in months of July and August. You do not need an appointment for this. Simply come to any of our weekend Masses to celebrate the Sacrament.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with me at 6479675712 or email me at fnoronha@hamiltondiocese.com

 

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding. It has been very hard planning these celebrations amidst changing and uncertain times.

Let us continue to pray that this pandemic will end soon. Many God’s blessings!

Many thanks,

Fr. Francis Noronha, CSC

Pastor, St. Thomas the Apostle parish, Waterdown
