Lockdown | A Letter from Fr Adam

Dear Parishioners,


Following yesterday’s announcement by the Ontario Government that the

Hamilton Region will move to the “grey “lockdown” zone effective at

midnight on Monday, December 21, 2020, Bishop Crosby has asked that ALL

public Masses be cancelled in Hamilton Region beginning on Tuesday,

December 22nd for at least two weeks, and until further notice.


According to the protocols for the “Grey Zones”, the maximum capacity

for any indoor gathering is 10 persons. This includes religious

services, weddings and funerals. For this reason, there are no public

Masses to be celebrated in our parishes during the coming weeks.


I will continue to celebrate Mass each day alone, and will be offering

each Mass for the designated intention and will be praying for all the

Regina Mundi parishioners. I will also be available for confession by

appointment. Please call or email me to make arrangements.


Bishop Crosby has already dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese from

the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays for the duration of the

pandemic. This includes Christmas and Mary Mother of God (i.e., New

Year's) Masses .


Please tune into Salt and Light TV or CHCH TV for the telecast of the

Midnight Mass from the Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King.


You may also wish to gather for prayer at home as a family using the

resource that is posted on the Diocesan Website

(https://hamiltondiocese.com/christmas2020/).


Let us continue to pray for an end to the pandemic and for the health

and safety of all.


Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a blessed new

year. Let us continue to pray for one another and all those who struggle

during the holiday season.


Fr. Adam Voisin

Pastor
