What's Happening in our Parish

St. Mary's is undergoing some renovations. We are having our ceiling painted and the interior brick walls of the church cleaned. Masses will continue during  this time in the Parish Centre with the exception of Tuesday July 7 and Wednesday July 8 - these two masses are cancelled in the hall due to renovations.

Although things will be different, please know that we remain committed in doing everything we can to have Mass available to everyone, but to also 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. 

 

 The maximum capacity for each Mass is 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

The Church’s alley entrance will open 30 minutes before Mass. Upon arriving at the Parish,  please ensure you are 6 feet/2 metres apart from one another.

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 an usher will take you to your seat.

The chairs are marked with social distancing in mind.

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

Ushers will help maintain social distancing during Communion.

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. Please use the ally entrance washrooms.

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

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

 

We are greatly in need of volunteers to make sure each Mass runs smoothly and in accordance with the current guidelines mandated by Alberta Health Services. Please contact the office if you are interested in being a

Safety Coordinator, Usher, Point of Entry or

 Cleaning & Disinfecting Team member.

 

   

Please note: 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.

 

Funerals

St. Mary's is still able to help with funeral arrangements and support if one

of our parishioners passes away.

Please call the parish office for more information: 403-347-3114 

 

 

 

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

and the entire Archdiocese of Edmonton.

We are grateful.
