New Guidelines from the Province of Ontario

June 8, 2021

Brothers and Sisters,

Pursuant to the new instructions from the Archdiocese about the Provincial Roadmap to reopen following the Stay-at-home Order. Some adjustments have been made that permit us to open the churches for worship from June 11, 2021, at 15% capacity.

With this in mind we would like to welcome you back for worship starting this weekend June 12, 2021 at the 4.30 pm Mass. We shall use the “First Come First Served” basis. It will be helpful if we come in time in order to give time for the ushers to be able to get us seated and to avoid last minute inconveniences. We shall return to our normal routine of 3 weekend Masses.

I thank all the volunteers for the tireless efforts you have put in ensuring that our parishioners are welcomed, made to feel safe as well as feeling respected. We owe you a debt of gratitude. We are calling on you once again to come and resume your volunteer duties as ushers, cleaning crew, livestream team, liturgists etc. Kindly call the office or send an email to Marlene Pignat at to let her know which mass you are attending in order to plan ahead for this. I hope everybody can come, we should be able to accommodate parishioners at 15%. Before you come to church, make sure that you have no symptoms of coughing, sneezing, high temperature or any other symptoms. If anybody is feeling unwell or still nervous about joining the group, we shall continue to livestream the Masses as we have been doing.

See you at Church!!

Father Martin

Welcome Message

Our website has been going through several changes and adaptations with the intention of serving you better. I hope you will find the new format more user friendly and will help you to interact with our parish and the rest of Mother Church. We have included a link to other useful websites that you will find helpful to acquaint yourself with news and events that are happening in our church today.

We are pleased to report that we have resumed the celebration of the Eucharist at St. Elizabeth Parish! So far, it has been a very engaging activity but has been worth the effort. We are so grateful to the volunteers who have been generous with their time and resources to organize the return to church and to do it within the established guidelines.

To comply with provincial health regulations, the Archdiocese of Ottawa requires us to adopt some best practices for safeguarding the health of our parishioners and volunteers. Many of these adaptations will be familiar as we have been doing most of these things already. The most significant are the following:

Physical Distancing and Safety Precautions:

  • Masks are required inside the church.
  • Hand Sanitizer will be available at the Entrance and Exits.
  • To maintain physical distancing, pews are assigned for seating. Please only use pews with are labelled. Families may sit together.
  • There will be no hymnals, bulletins or other paper handouts. Bulletins are posted on the website.
  • At Holy Communion, we remain standing and the ministers will come to our pews and will offer communion to us there.
  • Only one washroom for emergency use will be open. Downstairs’ toilets are out of bounds.
  • Please observe physical distancing in the parking lot and exit expeditiously after Mass to avoid congregating in groups. This is a bit difficult, but we have to try for the sake of one another.

Thank you for your prayers and cooperation in reopening the church. We are excited about this.


As you may know, our revenue from donations has significantly declined due to the Covid-19 restrictions limiting our gathering size and given that most of our members are in the vulnerable zone, who we have encouraged to stay home for now. Please help support St. Elizabeth by making a donation by cheque, cash at Mass or anytime online at our Canada Helps link on this website. If you donate online, you will receive a tax receipt immediately from Canada Helps. Also, you can donate through Interac E-Transfer at

Please support St. Elizabeth Parish community with your prayers and a financial contribution if you are able to do so at the present time. Your donation helps pay salaries, utilities, and costs for cleaning the church among other necessities. The additional precautionary measures such as cleaning the church after every Mass have increased our expenses when our revenue is already falling below our needs, so your financial assistance is appreciated. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation.

Due to the changes brought about by covid19, the morning adoration to the Blessed Sacrament has been temporarily suspended. In the meantime, we shall be having Evening Prayers and Adoration Wednesdays from 4.15pm to 5.00 pm and Fridays from 5.00pm to 7 pm.

I welcome you to the new website and am hopeful that it will unite amongst ourselves as members of St. Elizabeth, as well as members from outside our environs. Praised Be Jesus Christ.

Fr. Martin Ndyanabo
