WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OUR PARISH

 Please wear a mask when entering the parish office.

 

 You must phone the church to pre-register for Mass or go to our website.

 

 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 health related 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 physical distancing in mind.

Donations can be made on entry into the church in a basket provided. Ushers will help maintain physical 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.

  

 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.

 

Mass Intentions are listed on our website.

We Remember Our Loved Ones

Parishioners are invited to write the names of their

November 1 (All Saints Day) until November 30.

AS A PARISH, we are asked to remember all the

faithful departed in our prayers.

 

 

 

 

 

Donation Envelope Boxes

2021 boxes will be available for pick-up in November at the front entrance. Without exception, all donation numbers will be reassigned and you will not be able to use donation envelopes from previous years. St. Mary’s office staff would be pleased to help you set up Pre-authorized Debits to make giving easier. P.A.D’s are safe, easy and consistent.

If you have any questions, please call the office.
