I believe that this is a moment for us to reflect on what it means to be a Christian and a member of a parish family. Is Church the building where we worship, or is it the people of God?Fr. Toochukwu Okafor, Pastor

Phishing Email Scam (March 22) — Please be aware of fake email accounts using names of some of priests in our Archdiocese (including Fr. Toochukwu) asking for a favour or gift cards. Please do not respond to the sender as our priests would never ask for money in this way.
STM Society of St. Vincent de Paul changes due to COVID-19 (March 22) —SSVP will continue to deliver food from our Emergency Pantry. Due to the added potential for virus transmission from multiple parishioners bringing in food – we will no longer request or accept food donations. Our pantry managers will monitor stock and purchase more when required. Parishioners may make monetary contributions to SSVP by sending a cheque by mail to our Treasurer (Bill MacMaster, 32 Saratoga Dr., Dartmouth, NS B2X 3P8). Cheques should be made out to: St.Thomas More Conference SSVP. We have developed new guidelines for our food delivery teams to minimize risk to volunteers and clients.
Mass Intentions (March 21) — Although public Masses have been cancelled, priests will continue to say private Masses and will pray for your intentions.
Daily Rosary at St. Vincent de Paul Church (March 20) — As a result of closing the offices, there will be no Daily Recitation of the Holy Rosary except on days when the church is open. We ask that people continue to pray the Holy Rosary as part of your personal prayer.
This is a call to return to the origins of Christianity, to become once again like the early disciples of Christ who gathered in their homes to share the word of God, to sing and to pray. They loved and cared for one another such that no one was in need. It was that witness of faith that made people say, “See how much they love each other”. And more people joined their assembly and the Church grew in number and in faith.Fr. Toochukwu Okafor, Pastor
