Welcome to the website of St John Vianney Parish
Kamloops, British Columbia!

We hope that this site provides you with some information on our parish family. Everyone is welcome to visit and participate in our parish life.

Current Updates

If you would like to receive email updates from the Parish please email us and let us know.

After consulting with the BC bishops and priests in our diocese, we will gradually reopen our churches to celebrate together the Sacred Liturgy, beginning this coming solemnity of Pentecost on the weekend of May 31, 2020.

As we prepare to re-open our churches for Mass with the congregation, in a limited way since the COVID-19 pandemic still poses a serious threat to physical health, these considerations remain essential:

• Social and physical distancing and sanitizing;

• Organizing communities for Mass, since the limit of 50 persons, which includes clergy, is still in force; and,

• Demonstrating patience and kindness towards one another as we live out God’s commandment of love.

Each pastor and parish must take responsibility for following the established Guidelines for Re-opening of Masses with a Congregation and Provincial Health Authorities mandates, to make the appropriate adaptations for their individual communities depending on their size, space and resources.

We ask for your patience, understanding and willingness to work closely with your pastor as we navigate our way through the implementation and process of putting these in place.

Please contact your local parish or check your parish website for information on signing up for a specific Saturday anticipated Mass or Sunday Mass to attend since the limit of 50 people, including the clergy, is still in force.

LIVE STREAMING MASSES

As the Churches in our Diocese gradually reopen, in a limited way, the need for online mass will become less. Since the faithful in the Diocese of Kamloops remain dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass during this initial reopening phase, some of our Diocesan priests will still have online Masses that they are celebrating available through social media. Here are some links to the Masses that you can you can attend virtually. Thank you to all our priests who continue to minister, pray and care for us. Please share these with everyone in your parishes.

Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops Sunday Mass will be livestreamed from Sacred Heart Cathedral and celebrated by Bishop Joseph.

Overview of the Month – June 2020

The month of June is dedicated to The Sacred Heart of Jesus. This month falls within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time.

Highlights of the Month

As we begin to feel the warmth of summer, we can reflect that we celebrate the feasts of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (June 19) and the Immaculate Heart of Mary ( June 20) . God is Love and the Sacred Heart of Jesus — present on earth in the Blessed Sacrament — is the human manifestation of God's Love for men. Appropriately June is considered the month for weddings where human hearts join and cooperate with the Creator in bringing forth new life. The family they create is a human reflection of the Blessed Trinity. Also on June 1 we celebrate the Memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church. This feast is to be celebrated on the Monday following Pentecost. Other principle feasts of this month are St. Justin (June 1), Sts. Marcellinus and Peter (June 2), St. Boniface (June 5), St. Norbert (June 6), St. Ephrem (June 9), St. Barnabas (June 11), St. Anthony of Padua (June 13), Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More (June 22), the Birth of St. John the Baptist (June 24), St. Josemaria Escriva (June 26), St. Cyril of Alexandria (June 27), the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul (June 29) and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome (June 30). The feast of St. Romuald (June 19) is superseded by the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The feasts of St. Aloysius Gonzaga (June 21) and St. Irenaeus (June 28) are superseded by the Sunday liturgy.

A Time of Love

Following Pentecost, the Church begins her slow descent from the great peaks of the Easter Season to the verdant pastures of Ordinary Time, the longest of the liturgical seasons. Like the lush June growth all around us, the green of the liturgical season points to the new life won for us by the Redemption of Jesus Christ, the new life of Charity. For Our Lord came to cast the fire of His love on the earth, and to that end, sent His Holy Spirit at Pentecost in the form of tongues of fire. Ordinary Time is the hour to “go out to all the world and tell the good news.” The feasts of June highlight this expansion of the Church. At least ten times, the Church vests in the red of the martyrs whose blood is the very seed of her growth. She also celebrates the feasts of the apostles Peter and Paul, and the birth of St. John the Baptist, proto-disciple and prophet. We too are called to be witnesses like the apostles and martyrs. May the Heart of Jesus inflame our hearts so that we may be worthy of our Baptismal call to holiness. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

"Saint John Vianney, the patron of parish priests"

Man has a noble task: that of prayer and love. To pray and to love, that is the happiness of man on earth.

Prayer is nothing else than union with God. When the heart is pure and united with God it is consoled and filled with sweetness; it is dazzled by a marvelous light.

In a prayer well made, troubles vanish like snow under the rays of the sun.
