B.C. allowing churches to open with 50 people, details to come

By | Announcement, Article, Artículo, covid19 | No Comments
Dr. Bonnie Henry stated today that indoor worship services with up to 50 people will be allowed to resume this weekend.  The variance detailing safety requirements will be posted on the BC Restart site on Thursday, and these are expected to be very similar to those in place last fall.
This is good news indeed!   While there is work ahead of us to prepare for the presence of congregations in our churches once again, the return to the celebration of Mass with the participation of the faithful, now and more fully as the summer unfolds, is a reason to give thanks to God.
More information will be coming from the Communications Office as it becomes available.
With the assurance of my prayers, I remain

About the Day of Mercy

Archbishop Miller has set aside December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, as a dedicated Day of Mercy. The purpose of this day is to allow Catholics to recognize the need for, and availability of, the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent. The particular day itself will see vast opportunities throughout the archdiocese for people to get to Confession.
