Dear Sisters and Brothers:
In these rapidly changing times, the primary concern of the Archdiocese and myself has been your physical and spiritual well-being. I am continuing to offer my prayers for you daily, asking that God would protect all of us, in particular those who are most vulnerable, who care for the sick, and all those who provide essential services.
In keeping with the directives of the Provincial Government and in an effort to minimize the potential risk of infection, our churches will be closed, even to those wishing to come for private prayer, until further notice. I know that this will be a spiritual burden and require a significant adjustment to how we practice our faith. We are striving to provide whatever support we can during this time, while following the directives given by the Archdiocese, local, provincial and federal health authorities and governments.
For information on the measures the Archdiocese has taken and to access spiritual resources that they have made available, please regularly visit the Archdiocesan website at www.romancatholic.kingston.on.ca You can also subscribe to the electronic Newsletter “Weekly News Bulletin” put out by the Archdiocese by sending a request to Elisabeth Santos, at
I would also like to stay in contact with you here at the parish level. If the parish does not have your email address or a current phone number, please email them to or call the office at 613-396-2846. As much as possible, we will also make information available on the parish website holynameofmary3.com
Please contact the parish office if you have any questions, would like to make arrangements for Confession or the Anointing of the Sick, or if I can be of any further assistance.
May we continue to be united in prayer and service to one another during these difficult times.
For more information and resources, please refer to the Archdiocese of Kingston website.
Opportunity for Confession
Starting on Sunday March 29th until Thursday April 9th, Father Francis will be offering Drive Through Confessions from 3-4pm every afternoon in Marysville. Simply pull into the parking lot, drive around the back of the church and Father Francis will be waiting in his vehicle between the church and the rectory to hear your Confession. This will allow us to observe the recommended safety guidelines while still being able to receive God’s forgiveness in preparation for Easter. If this time does not work for your schedule but you would like to go to Confession, please contact the office to make arrangements.
Saint Michael's Church in Belleville is also offering Drive Through Confessions every day from 11:30am to 12:30pm and from 5pm to 6pm from the rectory window closest to the parking lot. Signs are set up to guide you.
Please share this information with anyone you think may be interested.
Opportunity for Adoration
Saint Michael's Church in Belleville has converted their glassed-in North entrance to the church into an adoration chapel. The monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament will be set out from 8am until 9pm every day. In order to follow the requirements for social distancing, adorers are asked to remain in their vehicles.
All Masses and Parish Events CANCELLED until further notice.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
