Grey Zone - March 15th (Covid-19)

Important Update on Covid-19 

My Dear Friends:

With the change in the policy of the Grey Zone allowing 15% capacity for churches, we will be celebrating our Sunday Masses again in Thunder Bay and the surrounding areas. In the Grey Zone, the capacity number is limited to 15% for your local church, which is not very high and we must continue to follow all the safety protocols. Please use careful discretion about attending Mass at this time. With the number of Covid-19 cases growing, people should be extra careful about gathering together and coming to Mass. If you have a cold, sniffles, fever, or are feeling in any way unwell, please do not attend Mass in your parish church at this time. Please follow Mass on social media through your parish live-stream or on our diocesan website at www.dotb.ca. If numbers go down, then things will be much safer. Thank you and stay safe.

Bishop Fred Colli
