Update November 6, 2020

Dear Parishioners,  

The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of our Parish, will be running their Annual Membership Drive after every mass on the weekends of November 8 and November 15.  The fee has not changed – it is still $35.00.  However, this year, due to Covid 19, they are asking that you preferably remit payment by cheque.   Please make cheque payable to:  Holy Cross CWL.   If for any reason you are not able to submit a cheque, they will accept cash; but please enclose the $35.00 in an envelope that is clearly marked with your name, address, phone number and email address on the front of the envelope.   The volunteers will not have access to any cash to give change.  Also, please advise the volunteers if you have a new address, phone number or email address.  Be assured that any information given will not be shared with anyone and will be kept strictly confidential.  If you are not able to attend mass on these weekends, please drop your payment at the Parish rectory office. 

SOMETHING NEW – Questions & Answers: 

Please see below “Questions” regarding our Mass Registration. I hope that my “Answers” will help clarify the process. 

Q:  How late can I register

A:  As long as you can see the Mass time on the registration site with available spots remaining, you can register.  

Q:  I registered Mass last week, but I was not able to come.  Can I register the following week

A:  No.  Regardless of your attendance, if you register one week, you are asked not to register the following week.  On the Registration site, only 2 weeks are posted.  You can only register for ONE MASS in that 2-week time frame. 

Q:  I registered last Sunday.  Today is Saturday, and it seems like there are still some spots remaining this Sunday, can I register? 

A:  No.  Remaining spots can be available for walk-ins.  (See above “Answer”) 

Q:  When is the new cycle of two weeks available? 

A:  Every other Monday (so the next cycle will be available on Monday, November 16 for the weekends of November 22 & 29). 

Also, I would like to encourage you to wear masks we you come to church.  As Dr. Bonnie Henry said masks are now an “expectation” for indoor public spaces in B.C.  By wearing them, it is also a sign of respect for our ushers and for others you may encounter coming into the church. 

Thank you very much for your ongoing understanding and cooperation! 

Fr. Chris Pastuszka, SDS
