Welcome to St. Mary's Parish

6 McMillan Ave, Red Deer, AB T4N 5X8 

St. Mary's Parish welcomes you. We are all called by Jesus Christ to know and

love Him. We hope you find our parish to be a welcoming community.  

By living our faith fully, sharing our faith freely, we hope to transform our world and

buildup the Body of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Welcome!

  

St. Mary's Office Hours 

Monday: Closed

Tuesday-Thursday: 10:00am-4:00pm (closed 12-1 for lunch)

Friday: 10:00am-Noon

 

The office staff have been very busy preparing to

welcome back the parishioners of St. Mary’s Parish.  You will notice many changes and things will seem so different, but please be assured that we remain

committed to doing everything we can to protect our parishioners, church staff, and clergy from infection. With this in mind, the Archbishop wants to remind everyone that we are still excused from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass. This is especially

important for anyone who may be at a greater risk due to health or advanced age. Online masses will

continue and are meant to be a source of comfort and peace. 

 

Guidelines for the Reintroduction of the Celebration of Holy Mass

STAGE ONE

The Guidelines are specific to the first phase of the reintroduction and are in place until a new guideline is issued.

Possible exposure to the contagion must be limited. Therefore, Masses are to be celebrated simply yet reverently

and within a shorter duration than normal.

The maximum capacity for each Mass is reduced to no more than 50 people to ensure physical distancing.

You must pre-register for Mass online at our website or by phoning the Church.

 YOU MUST BRING AND WEAR A NON-MEDICAL MASK TO ATTEND

Upon arriving at the Parish,  please ensure you are 6 feet/2 metres apart while waiting to enter the church. The Church’s alley entrance will open 30 minutes before Mass. We will then go through the list of pre-registered parishioners and ask a

few questions before entry into the building.

You will then need to hand sanitize and then an usher will take you to your seat. The pews are marked with social

distancing in mind.

Donations can be made on entry into the church in a basket provided.

There can be only one single file Communion line. Members of the same household need not observe physical distancing with one another during the Communion procession. Communion will not be distributed on the tongue at this time.

After Mass, everyone must use hand sanitizer and exit out the front doors.

We are in need of volunteers who are willing to be

Safety Coordinators, Point of Entry Teams, Ushers and Cleaning & Disinfecting Teams.

Please contact the office if you are interested.

Please know that this is all new to us, so we may have a few

hiccups before we get it right. Thank you.

 

Parishioners and volunteers from demographic groups that are at a greater risk of serious illness, such as people

65 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions, are encouraged to stay safe by avoiding public gatherings, but are not prohibited from attending Mass if they so choose.

Anyone attending Mass does so at their own risk.

 

Thank you to Troubled Monk Brewery for gifting hand sanitizer to St. Mary’s Parish

and the entire Archdiocese of Edmonton.

We are grateful.
