Our Parish During the COVID Pandemic

Masses

Our church is still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Masses at our parish are still happening according to our regular Mass Schedule. Tune in to Mass live through Facebook or YouTube.

We encourage everyone to join us in the celebration of Mass and receiving spiritual Holy Communion for the intention of quick deliverance from the coronavirus pandemic. God bless you all in this hard time!

Adoration

Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 restrictions, the chapel of the Perpetual Adoration is closed. However the Most Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the church 24 hours per day and we can adore Jesus in the Eucharist online through Parish TV.

Donation

Masses are cancelled, which means the Sunday collections are not being taken. It would be greatly appreciated if our parishioners still considered supporting the parish during this difficult time for us all.

There are several options for making offerings:

  • Drop off: Offertory box at the entrance to the parish office
  • Donate Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website by credit card. Select “St. Eugene de Mazenod Mission, Brampton” as your Parish. Under “Where should we direct your gift?” select “Parish Offertory” to make a Sunday offering or “Parish Building Fund” to help with the repayment of the loan taken for the construction of our church, which we normally collect on the last Sunday of the month.
    God bless you for support!

Contact

You can still reach us during this time by phone or email. Visit our Contact page for more information.

Lent 2020

All Fridays, especially during Lent, are days of abstinence from meat, but in Canada, Catholics may substitute special acts of charity or piety on this day. During Lent, we are asked to devote ourselves to seeking the Lord in prayer and reading Scripture, to service by giving alms, and to sacrifice self-control through fasting. We are called not just to abstain from sin during Lent, but to true conversion of our hearts and minds as followers of Christ. We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ’s death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.

 

LENTEN DEVOTIONS
Stations of the Cross in Polish (Mondays at 6:30pm) With the participation of children
Stations of the Cross in English (Thursdays at 6:30pm) SEYA
Stations of the Cross in Polish (Fridays at 6:30pm) 28.02.20 – Friends of the Missions
06.03.20 – Rosary Society
13.03.20 – Our Lady of Ludzmierz Committee
20.03.20 – Domestic Church
27.03.20 – Hosanna Ensemble
03.04.20 – Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors
Sorrowful Lamentations in Polish (Sundays at 5:30pm)

Lenten Food Drive

This Lenten season, we invite all parishioners to help feed the hungry in our community. While many Christians make the choice to adopt Lent as a time of fasting and abstinence, some of our neighbors do not have a choice. Please help by participating in our Knights Lenten Food Drive, and bring non-perishable food items to the Church over the next 7 weeks. The food collected during this time will be distributed among the less fortunate families in our parish.
