It is with a heavy heart that I share this important announcement with you, our community, today. Father Charles will be leaving our Parish and has been assigned to St. Augustine Seminary this coming June. Cardinal Collins has asked Father Charles to teach at the Seminary and give priestly formation to the candidates to the priesthood. Fr. Charles has been a part of the Transfiguration Parish community for last 2 years, and we are all going to miss him. But we have to accept this decision as there is a great need in the seminary. I am sure that he is going to be a great professor and formator in the seminary just like he was a great associate pastor here in Transfiguration of Our Lord Parish.

He will be moving to his new appointment on the 30th of June. He will be celebrating his last Sunday mass on June 27th.  Hope and pray that we will reopen our Churches before then so that we may celebrate this Mass with him.

Let us thank Fr. Charles for his ministry in our parish for the last two years and let us pray for his new ministry and wish him all the best.

Who is coming?

Fr. Patrick Ezimora will join us as our new associate pastor. At present Fr. Patrick is an associate pastor at St. Mary’s Parish in Brampton. He will join us on the 30th of June as our new associate pastor at Transfiguration. He speaks English, Italian and Spanish.

Dear parishioner,

Late Friday afternoon, the provincial government announced further restrictions to minimize the transmission of COVID-19, given the alarming increase in new cases over the past 10 days. The new measures have a direct impact on places of worship as part of an extended stay-at-home order, which will be in place until at least May 20, 2021.

The Cardinal has asked “churches, that are able to do so safely, to continue to remain open for private prayer and, where feasible, to offer Holy Communion Services on weekends.

In the light of this, I am happy to inform you that we will continue with what we were doing here in our church until there is some information to the contrary.
This is to say:

1. Our parish church will be open every week, Monday to Saturday, from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. for Private Prayer
2. The church will be open Sunday morning for Holy Communion Services.
(Please see below for times and how to register)

PLEASE DON’T FORGET

– Due to Provincial restrictions, only 10 people are allowed in the building at a time including the priest.
– Social distancing, masks and sanitizing hands are mandatory inside the Church
– We are not allowed to gather in groups in the parking lot where we will also be required to practice social distancing and wear our masks.

Please stay safe; stay at home unless you have a pressing need to go outside.  We must do all we can to make this pandemic a thing of the past.

With my every best wish, as always, for God abundant blessings.

ATTENTION
Please be advised that some parishioners are receiving requests, purportedly from the pastor or the associate pastor, for iTunes gift cards, either by text or email. 
In addition, there are reports of a variety of COVID-19 scams cropping up, including one where people call or visit homes trying to sell “COVID-19 testing kits.”
We would like to advise all parishioners to exercise caution when checking email messages, taking phone calls or responding to those at the door. Think before you click or open attachments, and always verify suspect messages by phoning the sender on a known phone number (not the phone number in the suspect message).
Thanks for your continued cooperation.
