In order to accommodate our faithful, while complying with the limitation of 30% of capacity, we will adjust some Mass times and add extra Masses on Sunday as follows:

COVID rules: You can find here the link for booking a seat for the Masses and here for coming to confession outside of the times before the Masses. Call Mrs Rugman or Fr Bélisle if you have difficulty doing a booking, but do not come to church on Sunday or First Friday without a booking. If you are not a regular to Orillia, please contact Fr. Bélisle or only try to book a place on Saturday, as the regulars fill the 3 masses on Sunday almost to full and have priority.
