    January 17, 2022
    The Archbishop has sent a directive to all parishes that masks are mandatory when attending Mass or any other liturgy. Face shields are no longer accepted as an alternative.

    January 3, 2022
    The new regulations announced today by the Government of Ontario do not change our hours of opening and Mass & Confession times.  All are asked to observe the existing requirements about masks, social distancing and hand sanitation.

    We have made the decision, however, to avoid in-person meetings in the Parish Office and church meeting rooms.  Parishioners, and others, are asked to deal with the Parish Office by phone or email, including requesting Mass intentions.  This will be our policy until the booster vaccine is more widely done in the community, including parish clergy.  The policy will last, at least, until January 31st. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  Fr. Kevin

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    At our meeting to take place next Tuesday evening – January 25, the Parish Pastoral Council will begin our focused reflection on the synodal process. If you have comments to share with the members of the Council, please feel free to send your reflection to me by email at rector@basilica.ca. Our expectation is that there will be an opportunity to consult with members of the parish, following guidelines provided by the Archdiocese.  We continue the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which will conclude ...

  • Synod 2021-2023

    For a Synodal Church

     Our diocesan synodal process will bring together the voices of the People of God in order to ask one fundamental question: A Synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journeys together.” How is this “journeying together” happening today in our local Church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our “journeying together”? + Marcel Damphousse, Archbishop of Ottawa-Cornwall
