Our vigils continue as usual…but in a different format. ALL are invited to join our next ‘At-Home Vigil of Prayer’ THIS Saturday, March 28 from 8am to 4pm by praying BY YOURSELF, IN YOUR OWN HOME. This month’s intention is for ‘an end to the coronavirus.’ Pray in any way you chose. Fr Bob encourages is to include this National Prayer for Canada. Choose any amount of time you have between 8am and 4pm. Our parishioners will pray individually, but in solidarity with each other and with the world.
Friday March 27th (1pm Ottawa time, when he will give the faithful a special blessing). See the full message from Pope Francis here.
To all our parishioners: here is an announcement from Archbishop Prendergast, SJ on March 23rd: “Following the orders of Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health for the Eastern Ontario Health Unit concerning closure of places of worship, I ask that effective immediately all churches in the Alexandria-Cornwall and Ottawa dioceses be closed—even for private prayer—until further notice”. For St Philips and St Clares, this includes all parish activities including weekend and evening Masses, all business and prayer meetings, Stations of the Cross, ‘Poor Man’s Suppers’, all Eucharistic adoration, euchre and social gatherings. Please email or call the office at 613-838-2314 if we can provide more information.
