The following note was received from the family of three women that we are looking forward to welcoming as soon as the present pandemic crisis is resolved to the point where international travel and refugee settlement in Canada is considered safe. I've shortened their names for the sake of confidentiallity, but I thought you might be interested to hear from them in their own "voice."
Greetings to you kind ones,
I am K and my daughters (M and L) want to thank you and your parish for all you have done for us as we wish you happiness and health.
We were very eager to meet you and are interested to know you.
Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have quarantined ourselves out of the fear of this horrifying disease and are practicing great care not to get infected.
The situation is getting worst and worst every day for us, as I am sure for many these are challenging times too, we are only hoping and praying that one day all of this shall pass too and I and my children can get through these hard times.
Also, I beseech you to keep us up to date with any progress about our resettlement case as it brings us much hope and happiness which is very much needed right now.
God bless you, and your family, in health and happiness,
With best wishes,
The office remains closed due the the coronavirus pandemic and is opened only by appointment.
Preregistration is no longer required to attend worship services. Masking is no longer required, but is recommended.
We acknowledge with gratitude and respect that our parish is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples. We are located in the Lower Chedoke Watershed.
