*** EXCEPTIONAL MEASURES ***

Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal is closed and all of its activities are cancelled

Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal is closed and all of its activities are cancelled. This includes the broadcast of the Mass on the radio, the telephone consultation service as well as the online store. These exceptional measures taken in accordance with directives from the Government of Quebec are in effect until April 13.

As for the 8:30 a.m. Mass in French televised by Salt and Light, the broadcast will now be from the Marie-Reine-du-Monde Cathedral. However, we remain present with you on our social networks and by the broadcast of the delayed Mass on our website.

In addition, Radio VM will exceptionally broadcast a live Mass in French presided by a member of the Holy Cross Congregation at 8:30 a.m. every day.

Let’s keep our hearts open to love and hope. May our faith take root in the light of the Risen Jesus in this time of trial. Pray for each other forming a great chain of spiritual solidarity.

Thank you for your understanding.
