We also have made an adjustment to the RECTORY office hours: Effective immediately – CLOSED

Phone calls only-someone will get back to you!

We are currently working on providing you with the video of the Mass per day. Once it is up and running we will post it on our facebook page. (Matthias Saint).

CCBQ Census Update to Parishes

During this very difficult time, we sincerely hope and pray that you and your parish are doing well.  This is being sent to you for a quick update on the 2020 Census, a very important tool of our democracy.  It is expected to proceed although some of the timeline may have to be adjusted.

Right now, the easiest way to make sure residents are counted is through self-response online, by phone, or by mail.  Emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic are precisely why our government needs accurate census data.  We must all do our part by making sure we self-respond and encourage others in our networks to do so as well.
Residents can self-respond to the census online at or speak to a Census worker live by dialing 844-330-2020 for English or 844-468-2020 for Spanish.

Below is a list of telephone numbers available for other languages. 


  • Spanish: (844) 468-2020
  • Chinese (Mandarin): (844) 391-2020
  • Chinese (Cantonese): (844) 398-2020
  • Polish: (844) 479-2020
  • English: (844) 330-2020
