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.
