Pray at home.

Join the Mass or other prayers virtually.

  • In addition to saskatoonmass.com, other options are also available, such as CatholicTV or Toronto's Daily TV Mass. Some may also work on a smart TV or streaming device (e.g. AppleTV, Roku, Amazon FireTV).
  • VisionTV broadcasts the Mass daily at 6:00am and weekdays at 10:00am (SaskTel 23 / 323; Shaw 571; Bell 261). Salt & Light TV and EWTN also broadcast the Mass.

Pray the Rosary.

Try the Liturgy of the Hours.


Check out Worship@Home with your family.

  • It's a free online resource to help families with children pray together at home while we are unable to gather for Sunday Mass, right from their iPad or phone.
  • It gently coaches parents and their families through the age-appropriate prayer experience, and even makes it a little fun.

Pray as you go.

  • Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
  • It's an excellent guided introduction to Lectio Divina, an amazing form of prayer based on the scriptures. Short, simple, and powerful.

Grow in faith.


Watch something awesome on FORMED.

Reach out to others.

  • Check on your friends, neighbors, and relatives - maybe even your enemies.
  • Chat over the phone, Facetime, Skype, etc.
  • If you're healthy and able, consider offering to pick up some groceries for those who are homebound or quarantined.
  • Remember, if you are sick, even a little, please stay home.

Pick one of the many, many other options.

 

 

We will do our best to keep this list updated as the days and weeks progress.

If you are sick, please stay home.
