Parish Office Email:

Dear Parishioners,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe and coping with the unprecedented events of the past few weeks.  Both the Holy Redeemer (Eastlink Cable 10) and St. Piux X (Facebook Live) are offering live streams of their Sunday Mass for those wishing to continue their preparations for Easter while social distancing and respecting the instructions and guidance of our local health officials. 

Without the weekend Masses, our Parish is without its main source of revenue to continue to pay various on-going expenses.  If you are in financial position to continue your weekly donations, please consider forwarding two weeks via e-transfer to the following email address: 

If your transfer requires a password, we recommend using 

Who is the Patron Saint of Our Parish?  answer - Francis

For those who have encountered layoffs and reduced working hours and/or additional needs to support family members, please do not put your financial stability at risk at this time by feeling an obligation to respond to this request. 

The Good Shepherd Pastoral Unit is a community and we are here to support each other.  As noted on this webpage, please call the St. Francis parish office at 902-566-3876 with any requested for support from either the church or St. Vincent de Paul.

Note: for St. Anne's and St. Martin's parishioners if you wish to do an email transfer please follow the above direction and St. Francis parish will forward the money to your parish.
