 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.

 

YOU MUST BRING AND WEAR A 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. Donations can be made on entry into the church in a basket provided. Ushers will help maintain 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. 

 

Archbishop Smith 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. 

  

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.

  • August 8th - August 16th marks the last week of St Mary’s Justice and Mercy Committee bottle drive. Parishioners are encouraged to drop off empty and clean beverage containers and flattened milk containers at the parish rectory garage. When the garage doors are open, please place boxes or bags of containers in the garage. When the doors are closed, place them in front of the garage. Proceeds from the sale of the bottles will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul. Thank you for your support. 


 SCAM ALERT

Scammers are getting better at collecting information about our priests and parishes to fool parishioners into buying gift cards. Please know that a priest would NEVER ask for money/gift cards.

If you receive any emails, please phone the parish office.

 DO NOT SEND MONEY OR GIFT CARDS.
