Prayer from St Joseph's Oratory
Montreal, Quebec: Model of Laborers
Good St. Joseph, when God wanted a family for His Son, He looked among the laborers, and chose you along with Mary, demonstrating His esteem for human work. You put your heart into your work, and share your workshop with Jesus. Your work, like that of other humans, found new meaning in the presence of God. Sustain in us the hope of finding work when we are confronted with the desolation of unemployment. Counsel business leaders to create an equitable division of labor that is respectful of individuals, and promotes our growth and happiness. Help us to perform our work joyfully, conscientiously, fairly and honestly. Prepare our hearts to recognize your Son in our colleagues at work. Amen
Prayer for the year of St. Joseph (from Pope Francis)
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.

Since the general dispensation of the obligation to attend mass ends on March 13, we may have more people returning to church, although we still have to practice social distancing. We are limited to about 110 people at any mass, about 60 in the church and 50 in the parish hall.
We will keep the same mass schedule (Saturday 4:30 pm, Sunday 8:30 AM, 11:00 AM) and will closely monitor attendance for several weeks to see if any adjustments need to be made
Suspension of obligation to attend Mass extended to
Saturday, March 13, 2021
From time to time, we will be opening some windows in church to promote better ventilation. We anticipate that the Church will be a bit colder, but think that the slight discomfort is worth the benefit. So make sure you have a sweater or jacket!
We are limited as to the number of people who can be in the church for mass. We estimated earlier the number to be 75, but that only works with certain seating arrangement. The actual number is approximately 60-65. We are able to seat 50 more in the hall, where the mass is livestreamed and communion will be distributed. In order to plan, we do ask people to sign up before hand and let us know you will be coming. We appreciate your cooperation. You can use this sign up:
