Dear Parishioners of  ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA PARISH.

In order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and so as to comply with the Government of Ontario’s new regulations requiring that all non-essential workplaces be closed, we are sorry to inform you that the church and the parish office must remain closed until further notice.

This is a deeply painful, but necessary, decision for our faith community.

However, we are still here for you during this difficult time. You can still leave a voicemail at the parish office: (905) 272-1454. Or you can email us at: office@stcatherine.ca  waltertonelotto@hotmail.com .  We will return your message as soon as possible. Visit www.archtoronto.org/covid19 for updated information from the Archdiocese of Toronto and for links to view the Daily Mass online. (You can follow our parish news by going to our web page: www.stcatherine.ca )

Please continue to pray for those sick and those caring for them. Be assured of our daily prayers for you.

Yours in Christ

Fr. Walter Tonelotto, C.S. Pastor.

Fr. Jose’ Placensia, C.S. Associate

Fr. Stephen Hoang, C.S. Associate
