A Memo from
July 15, 2020
All parishioners in the City of St. Catharines are asked to comply with the new by-law by wearing a mask when entering a church. Exceptions pertain to those with medical issues and those under the age of 10.
- No one will be denied entry into a church if they fail to comply. Parishes may wish to have masks available at church entrances for those who are without one.
- Priests are to wear a face mask for the distribution of Communion.
- All are reminded that it is strongly recommended that Communion is by hand. Communicants are instructed to remove their masks while the person ahead of them is receiving Holy Communion. After the priest says, “The Body of Christ” and the communicant responds “Amen” (at a distance of two meters), the communicant then approaches the priest to receive communion.

PRAYER OF REPARATION FOR
THE DESECRATION OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT
O Most Holy Trinity, Father,
Son and Holy Spirit,
I adore Thee profoundly.
I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended.
By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners. Amen.
Gerard P. Bergie, D.D., J.C.L.
