The Diocese of Hamilton has sent out directives to our clergy with respect to the Fall semester in our publicly-funded Catholic schools.
- there will be no in-person visits from priests or other parish staff to classrooms. This is to help the schools settle into their new routine.
- no school masses
- no school confessions (at the school)
- pastors are to consult with elementary school principals on the matter of preparing pupils and students for the celebration of sacraments in the Spring of 2021 given these guidelines
