Helping You Grow In Your Faith

Welcome to Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Community in Sarnia Ontario, Canada.

Under pastoral care of the Michaelite Fathers.

Weekday Masses (Public Masses and Services are being resumed as of February 20) Because some people may be sick, have a compromised immune system, or feel uncomfortable returning to church, the dispensation of the obligation for Sunday Mass remains in effect until further notice.

 

From Sep 29, 2020 - September 2021 we begin the celebration of the Jubilee Year (100 years of the reception of the Michaelite Fathers).

Prayer to St. Joseph

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

 

Modlitwa do św. Józefa.

Witaj, Stróżu Odkupiciela, Oblubieńcze Najświętszej Maryi Panny. Tobie Bóg powierzył swego jedynego Syna; Tobie zaufała Maryja; z tobą Chrystus stał się człowiekiem. Błogosławiony Józefie, także nam, pokaż sobie jak ojca i prowadź nas ścieżką życia. Uproś dla nas łaskę, miłosierdzie i odwagę i broń nas przed wszelkim złem. Amen

Divine Mercy Chaplet

* There will be no divine mercy during COVID-19

COVID - 19

First, face masks are now required by law.

As of January 1, 2021, people seeking an exemption from wearing a mask for medical reasons must provide evidence from their doctor.

Second, we can continue to distribute Holy Communion but we must ensure that a mask is worn both by the minister and recipient when they are within two metres of each other and that Communion is received only in the hand.  {If someone is present at church with exemption and no mask, they must remain in their seat and Father will bring communion to them.}

Third, over the past months we have gained a better understanding of COVID-19 and can safely modify our practice regarding the cleaning of pews. If the pew is used within an hour of last occupancy, only frequently touched surfaces need to be cleaned. If the pew will not be used within an hour of last occupancy, there is not a need to clean it. I hope this lessened standard for pew cleaning will provide some relief, particularly for volunteers who have served their parishes so diligently over the past months.

Because some people may be sick, have a compromised immune system, or feel uncomfortable returning to church, the dispensation of the obligation for Sunday Mass remains in effect until further notice.

 

Beginning on Saturday February 20, 2021 our church will reopen for Mass and our normal Mass schedule will resume.

  1. We can have 30% capacity at each Mass (55). Because of the size of our community this shouldn’t be a problem, however capacity will be on a first come first serve basis. The pews will be mark off as to where you will be able to sit. We are asking those who live under one roof to occupy one pew only.
  2. Every person entering the church above 8 years old must wear a face mask.
  3. Upon entering and exiting the church, you will have to sanitize your hands.
  4. Anyone entering the church for mass, will have to provide their name and phone number to the usher for contact tracing purposes, should someone that attended mass became ill.
  5. Holy Communion will be distributed by hand only. When proceeding to communion, keep 6 feet distance from individual in front of you.  Stop 6 feet from priest, Priest says “Body of Christ”, you say “Amen” Then receive host on hand, step to the side, remove mask, place host in mouth and replace mask and then proceed back to your seat.
  6. All of the hymnals and missals have been removed from the pews. Singing will be limited to the choir.
  7. If you are sick or don’t feel well please stay home.

More information will be forthcoming as it is made available to us.

COVID-19

Po pierwsze, maski na twarz są teraz wymagane przez prawo.

 

Od 1 stycznia 2021 r. Osoby ubiegające się o zwolnienie z noszenia maski ze względów medycznych muszą przedstawić dowody od swojego lekarza.

 

Po drugie, możemy nadal rozdawać Komunię Świętą, ale musimy zadbać o to, aby zarówno usługujący, jak i przyjmujący nosili maskę, gdy znajdują się w odległości dwóch metrów od siebie, a Komunię przyjmowano tylko na rękę. {Jeśli ktoś jest obecny w kościele bez wyjątku i bez maski, musi pozostać na swoim miejscu, a Ojciec przyniesie mu komunię.}

 

Po trzecie, w ciągu ostatnich miesięcy lepiej zrozumieliśmy COVID-19 i możemy bezpiecznie modyfikować nasze praktyki dotyczące czyszczenia ławek. Jeśli ławka jest używana w ciągu godziny od ostatniego użytkowania, należy wyczyścić tylko często dotykane powierzchnie. Jeśli ławka nie będzie używana w ciągu godziny od ostatniego użytkowania, nie ma potrzeby jej czyszczenia. Mam nadzieję, że ten obniżony standard czyszczenia ławek przyniesie pewną ulgę, szczególnie wolontariuszom, którzy tak pilnie służyli swoim parafiom przez ostatnie miesiące.

Ponieważ niektórzy ludzie mogą być chorzy, mieć osłabiony układ odpornościowy lub czuć się nieswojo wracając do kościoła, zwolnienie z obowiązku odprawienia Mszy niedzielnej obowiązuje do odwołania.

Począwszy od soboty 20 lutego 2021 roku, nasz kościół zostanie ponownie otwarty na Mszę św., A nasz normalny harmonogram Mszy zostanie wznowiony:
1. W kosciele na jednej Mszy sw. mozemy zajac tylko 30% miejsc, ktore mamy w lawkach. Przy naszej liczbie parafian nie powinismy miec z tym problemow. Miejsca do siedzenia beda oznaczone. Prosimy aby ci, ktorzy mieszkaja “ pod jednym dachem” usiedli razem, w tej samej lawce.
2. Każdej osobie wchodzącej do kościoła w wieku powyżej 8 lat zaleca się nosić maskę na twarz.
3. Po wejściu i wyjściu z kościoła będziesz musiał oczyścić ręce.
4. Każdy, kto wchodzi do kościoła na mszę, będzie musiał podać swoje nazwisko i numer telefonu, na wypadek, gdyby ktoś, kto uczestniczył w mszy, zachorował.
5. Komunia sw. bedzie rozdawana tylko na reke. Przystępując do komunii, zachowaj odległość 6 stóp od osoby przed sobą. Zatrzymaj się 6 stóp od kapłana, kapłan mówi “Ciało Chrystusa”, mówisz “Amen”. Następnie otnzymasz hostie na rękę, przejdź na bok, zdejmij maskę, włóż hostię do ust i zaloz maskę i wróć na swoje miejsce.
6. Ograniczony zostal spiew do organist I kilku spiewakow.
7. Jezeli ktos jest chory, nie czuje sie najlepiej prosimy pozostac w domu.

Więcej informacji będzie dostępnych, gdy zostaną nam udostępnione.
