  • Mary Mother of God Parish: offers 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 3:00pm 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 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 of the masses are: March 8, April- NONE, May 10, and June 14. For more information please contact Debbie Frey at youth.mmogp@bellnet.ca
