  • Dr. Bonnie Henry - Provincial Health Officer for British Columbia is asking everyone

      to please wear masks when they are in indoor public spaces. This applies to us also.

Therefore, we kindly ask that parishioners please consider wearing a mask

not only when you enter and leave the church, but also during the service.

This is not mandatory at this time but only a request.

           Thank you for your consideration

                                                                                           

 

  • At St. Patrick’s Parish you must still register for which day of the week

you would like to attend Mass.

  • To do this please call Deborah or Brian at St. Patrick’s Parish Office

at: 250-592-7391 or email: stpat190@telus.net

  • Our Mass schedule remains the same for now with a

maximum of “50” parishioners allowed at each Mass:

Tuesday – Friday: 12:10pm

  • SCAM ALERT!!  It’s happening again. There is an email scam going around using Fr. William’s name. This scam has been going around for a while now, and in the last week directly affected one of our long time parishioners.  The mail states that Fr. William has a friend battling cancer at Royal Jubilee Hospital, and requests gift cards to help support this friend. Fr. William would like to stress once more that he would never ask anyone for money or gift cards from any of his friends, or parishioners. If you receive an email like this and feel unsure of it’s authenticity, please call Fr. William directly to clarify before you buy any gift cards, and please do not reply to the email! Also - check the actual sent e-mail address - many times these scams have a very different identification than what they purport to be.  It is heart breaking to know this is happening to parishioners our Pastor cares deeply about. Please be very cautious with any emails or text messages of this nature.

 

  • Christmas Masses.   Many of you have been inquiring recently about the plan for the Christmas Mass schedule. For those of you who already attend (are registered for) a Mass, you have likely already heard about Fr. William’s Twelve Days of Christmas” plan. He hopes to keep everyone who’s already in a Mass bubble secure in their bubble; and he plans to celebrate a Christmas Mass on everyone’s individual Mass day (ex: if you attend Mass on Tuesdays 9am, your Christmas  Mass will be celebrated the Tuesday of Christmas week). For those of you who have not attended Mass since March, are not part of a Mass bubble and have not attended Mass at any other parish in the Diocese, Fr. William will be adding a couple of extra Masses that you may register for. There will also be an extra Mass added for families with children who have not had the opportunity to attend Mass since March.
  • These extra Mass times and further details will be published in next week’s bulletin, as well as the date for when registration will open for registering for these additional Masses.
  • We know what a challenging time this has been for everyone. As infection numbers increase on the Island, our future is uncertain. We thank you for your understanding and patience as we strive to do what’s best to keep everyone safe, while keeping the church open for Christmas. Please stay tuned to the bulletin for further information.  Thank you all.

 

  • The LIVING with CHRIST 2020-2021 SUNDAY MISSALS have now arrived and are available in the Parish Office at a cost of $5.00
  • The Grade 7 class at St. Patrick’s Elementary School (2368 Trent Street) is holding a Bottle Drive to help raise funds for their year-end camp (which at this point looks like they will be able to do safely as a cohort). This year the Bottle Depot is offering a "no-sort" bottle drive option.  All you need to do is collect containers and bring them to the school parking lot on Saturday, November 28th between 9am and 11am. The Gr. 7’s will take it from there! Thank you for considering support of our local parish Catholic School in this fundraiser!

 

  • A reminder that our Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is still available 24 hours every day. 

Please call the office if you need a code to access the Chapel.

       Only 3 persons at a time are permitted in the chapel.  Please keep your physical distance.

 UPDATED AND REVISED PROTOCOLS AND DIRECTIVES 

  • By now, most of you have seen the new directives from the Bishop of Victoria that came  this week. There are a few highlights that affect us directly at Holy Cross. Namely, music and “walk-in’s”. 
  • Music: It is important to remember that, as unnatural as it seems during Mass, congregational singing is not permitted. It has been proven that germs spread faster and longer distances when there is singing. Music will be limited to a single cantor and an accompanist, and only they will sing an entrance, communion and recessional hymn. The rest of the Mass will be spoken. 
  • “Walk-ins”: At St. Patrick’s, this only applies to the Saturday and Sunday Masses. Each Mass has been designated a volunteer who will oversee the Mass list. If you are unable to attend your Mass on either Saturday or Sunday, you are asked to reach out to your Mass volunteer and let them know in advance so they can offer a seat to someone on the waitlist.  There will be no “walk-ins”, and only those on the waitlist will be offered empty seats. The maximum seating of 50 people will not change. Your Mass volunteer should be reaching out to you by email shortly to introduce details of this revise protocol in the coming days.                                        
  • The new protocols, in their entirety, are posted in the church foyer. If you have not received an email copy and would like to, please contact the office: stpat190@telus.

We are a faith community of over 800 families and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria. The parish was created in 1912 under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our present church, dedicated to Saint Patrick was completed in 1960 and the Parish Centre and St. Clare Villa, a life-lease residence for seniors, were added in 1999.

St Patrick's School, which opened in 1956 provides Kindergarten through Grade 7 and emphasizes both the academic and spiritual development of our students.
