Lockdown | A Letter from Fr Adam
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
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
