Recognizing that many parishioners have gone a year without the Eucharist, Father William has decided to provide Communion outside in the Holy Cross parking lot after the Easter Sunday Mass from 11:00am to 12:30pm

Please drive into the parking lot and follow the guidance of the ushers.  Please do not park and get out of your vehicle.

Holy Cross Parish address is: 4049 Gordon Head Road.

It has been a very long year, difficult and lonely for many of us.  It is the second Easter that we cannot gather as a community during the most significant celebration of the liturgical year.  It is painful and heartbreaking.  And yet we must remain steadfast in our commitment to prioritize the health and safety of our most vulnerable at this time.  Please feel free to reach out to our Pastor Father William Hann or one of our Parish staff members if you need support in this regard.  St. Patrick's Parish Office: 250-592-7391.

  • Blessing to all Parishioners during this Easter season.
  • Be Kind, Be Calm and Be Safe.

Father William Hann – Pastor
Deborah Mackay & Brian Zawacki - Administrative Assistants

We are a faith community of over 800 families and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria. The parish was created in 1912 under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our present church, dedicated to Saint Patrick was completed in 1960 and the Parish Centre and St. Clare Villa, a life-lease residence for seniors, were added in 1999.

St Patrick's School, which opened in 1956 provides Kindergarten through Grade 7 and emphasizes both the academic and spiritual development of our students.
