Churches Re-opening - Feb. 16 (Covid-19)

Important Update on Covid-19 

Churches to Reopen:

My Dear Friends, with the Provincial Government returning to the colour coding for regions, we are able once again to open our churches for public worship beginning on Ash Wednesday. Church offices may also reopen with limitations as to the numbers attending at any one time due to colour code restrictions. You are reminded that all pandemic protocols remain in place in our churches, with social distancing, the wearing of a mask at all times, and hand sanitation at the entrances. Please limit any socialization outside to a minimum. It is good to be returning to our churches, and I thank you for your continued support of our parishes and for your patience. For those who are not yet comfortable with returning to Mass at this time, please follow our weekend masses on live-stream through your parish or through our diocesan website. Also remember that if you are feeling ill, with a cough, fever, etc. please remain home until you are fully well again.

Thank you.

Bishop Fred Colli
