SENSORY FRIENDLY MASSES: Beginning in November, Mary Mother of God Parish will offer a monthly Mass for Catholics (young and old) with sensory sensitivities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD. On the second Sunday of the month at 3:00 pm we will offer Mass with less sensory input. You can expect lower lights, softer music, low gluten host, smaller host portions, shorter and more literal homilies and the freedom to move around if necessary..Most important: you’ll receive the Eucharist while surrounded by a fellow worshipers with a welcoming attitude. Feel free to bring whatever supports you may need, including fidgets, weighted blankets, noise cancelling headphones, sunglasses or comfort toys. Dates for our sensory friendly Masses are: Nov 10, Dec 15, Jan 12, Feb 9,  March (cancelled for March Break) April 12, May 10, June 14.For more information, please contact Debbie Frey at youth.mmogp@bellnet.ca.
