parish update on the coronavirus problem: A Letter to Parishioners

June 14, 2020

Welcome Parishioners,

The Government of Saskatchewan and Archdiocese of Regina have both released further updates regarding worship services for churches, which allows our parish to hold services for a maximum of 150 people (including the priest and others providing ministry) following the Archdiocesan directives. We are extremely pleased to invite our parishioners back to mass, and to get back to our regularly scheduled weekday and weekend masses:

  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:00am

  • Fridays at 7:00pm

  • Saturdays at 5:00pm

  • Sundays at 10:00am

Please be aware and respect the health and safety measures our parish has in place to allow parishioners to feel comfortable and welcome in our parish.

  • Please use the main entrance of the church to enter and exit the church, unless previous arrangements have been made with Father Andrew to use the side entrance

  • Your name will be recorded upon entering the building

  • You will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entering and leaving the building

  • Families that live in the same household may sit together, but a distance of 2m must be kept between other families/individuals

  • Collection Baskets are placed at the back of the church, kindly place your envelopes/donation in the basket prior to being seating

  • Sign of Peace is exchanged by way of non-contact acknowledgment (friendly smiles, nods, gentle waving of hands), not shaking of hands

  • Communion will be offered. Please be mindful of the 2m distance obligation between one another as you approach the altar.

  • If you have any symptoms of illness, please do not attend at the church
