For those with Celiac disease, participating in Holy Communion is a challenge. Starting next Saturday, Feb. 3 at the 5 p.m. Mass and all future weekend Masses, there will be a Eucharistic minister distributing low-gluten hosts in a separate ciborium to prevent cross-contamination. The low-gluten hosts contain less than 0.01% gluten and are made by the Benedictine Sisters of the Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, MO. For more information on the hosts, please visit www.pbsisters.on.ca/altar-breads.
LAST YEAR’S PALMS
Because the palms from last year’s Palm Sunday Liturgy are blessed, they are now sacramentals. Sacramentals should be treated with respect and never be thrown away. If you would like to dispose off your palms, please bring them to the church and deposit them in the “old palms” container outside the Parish Office. Once collected, they will be burned for ashes.
If you have changed your address or phone number in the past year, please ensure that your information is correct with our office so your tax receipt can be issued.
