Blog #19: Green Zone, Green Light
February 10, 2021
The lockdown has been lifted and our area is called a “green zone”. That means we can have our regular Mass schedule with 30% capacity in the church. It was like that for us from June to Christmas.
Our regular schedule will resume this weekend. Our parish Mass schedule is available here: www.blessedsacramentamherstview.org/bls_masses.html.
The schedule may be downloaded for printing here: www.blessedsacramentamherstview.org/Mass_Schedule_Feb13-Feb21_2021.pdf
A special note about Ash Wednesday: The Archdiocese of Kingston has pledged $100,000 to help the St. Vincent de Paul Society in their Ministry to the poor and disadvantaged of our community. Therefore, each parish is to have a collection on each Ash Wednesday so we can contribute. The St. Vincent de Paul Society is remarkable. There are many ways they help those in need, and they always emphasize the dignity of each person. Your donation will help people who are hungry, homeless, in need of clothes, support, encouragement, counselling, etc. The Archdiocesan pledge covers the next five years as the St. Vincent de Paul Society moves to a new building on Bagot Street. You can donate on Ash Wednesday at Mass or at a weekend Mass or by dropping your donation in the parish office mailbox…please put your donation in an envelope marked for: “St. Vincent de Paul Society” (include your name and address for an income tax receipt) …Please make cheques payable to Blessed Sacrament, with a memo to St. Vincent de Paul Society. Thank you in advance for your generosity…
