Restrictions on Worship Services Lifted

By | Announcement, Article, Artículo, covid19, protect | No Comments

All restrictions for mass have been lifted. There are no restrictions with regard to the number of people who attend. Registration is no longer necessary. People are recommended to wear masks while at mass. Communion will be given during mass and in the hand. We will slowly be introducing altar servers, communion ministers and lectors. Choirs can once again sing at mass and the con-gregation can join in singing. Sunday, July 11 will be the last day for live streaming except for Fridays at 6:30 pm. Drive up communion will end with the 1:00 pm mass on Sunday, July 11. All are welcome to attend mass in person. If anyone still feels uncomfortable in doing so one can always watch the masses transmitted on TV. If there are any particular issues with regard to these new procedures please let me know.

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
