Dear Parishioners and Friends. It is beautiful to see the church full again; full in the sense that we fill all the spaces designated for people according to the social distancing and regulations of the Archdiocese. We are fortunate in our church to have a lot of space. The 8:30am mass is almost to capacity (Church, balcony and Main Hall) but if necessary we will also open the other two Halls: Scalabreini and Zanon. Again I want to thank the great number of Volunteers, who sanitize before and after each mass.

JOSEPHINE LALDEEN, the Founder of FATIMA HOSUE in Pakistan has left for heaven. She was 90 years old. Our parish has supported her apostolate for many years and we like to remember her faith and faithfulness with great joy. May her good work continue both here and in Pakistan. May she rest in peace!
