Christmas season has come and gone, and I wish to express my gratitude to all those who have helped to make our celebrations of Christ's birth truly beautiful. Thank you to all our decorators, musicians, lectors, ministers of Holy Communion, and ushers. You have made my first Christmas at St. Mary's and the Missions a beautiful one. We now return to the ordinary season of the Church. During the winter months we will discontinue the Wednesday evening Masses at Meaford and Hepworth. Thank you for understanding. Also, if the weather conditions become dangerous for driving and we have to cancel any of our weekend Masses at the mission churches, we will post an announcement on the home page of our parish website. When in doubt, please check the website. May the blessing of Almighty God be with us in this New Year!
