Important Information that must be reviewed each time you will be attending Mass:

  1. Anyone attending Mass in person must be in good health. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, do not attend:
    1. Are you feeling sick?
    2. Do you have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath?
    3. Have you travelled outside of Canada within the last 14 days?
    4. Are you in close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19?
    5. Have you tested positive for COVID-19?
  2. Masks are mandatory at all times while in the building, in accordance with the Provincial Health Order.
  3. Attendance will be limited in accordance with the current public health order. Households are expected to maintain a minimum 2m (6') distance between each other. Pews are marked to help facilitate social distancing.
  4. Please show up on time. Aim to arrive abouit 5-10 minutes before Mass. Especially with our limited numbers, if you are not present by the time Mass begins, other people may have been allowed to attend in your place, and you will not be allowed to enter the worship space.
  5. Mass will be kept quite simple, but we need some volunteers.
    • There will not be a choir, except at the 9:00am Sunday Mass, and there are no hymnals available.
    • We will not take up a collection, but have baskets available before and after Mass set up near the doors. The small grey box attached to the front of the Concierge Desk is also available. Alternately, donate now online.
    • We do not have an appointed Reader, so we ask one person attending to proclaim the First Reading, Responsorial Psalm, Second Reading (on Sundays), and Prayers of the Faithful (on Sundays).
    • We do not have scheduled Ushers and Greeters, but ask for volunteers act as an Usher/Greeter to assist. Instructions will be provided; it will not be overly complicated. Please try to arrive at least 20 minutes early. Those who are vulnerable are not encouraged to sign up for this ministry.
  6. If you have registered to attend, we expect you to show up. If you are unable to do so, please cancel your registration (using the link in your confirmation email) or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that we can extend the opportunity to others.
  7. There still will be a risk for anyone who attends a public Mass. Even with best health practices and strict personal distancing, anyone who enters a public space should recognize there is a risk of contracting the Coronavirus. Improved cleaning will occur, but no one should expect that they will be any safer from germs than in other public spaces.
