Reinstatement of Public Mass

The Catholic Bishops of Alberta have released directives for the gradual reinstatement of public celebrations of the Mass starting with weekday Masses on Monday, June 1 and weekend Mass on Saturday, June 6. 
 
Certain conditions must be met so congregants can safely return to Mass. Special procedures and guidelines are set in place and have been developed to coincide with the first stage of the Alberta Relaunch Strategy. These are not permanent changes, but rather temporary adjustments to our normal practice taken in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
 

Letter from Archbishop Smith

Attendance

  • Expanded attendance limits as of June 15, determined by the parishes and dependent on building size, staff and volunteer capacity
  • Attendees are expected to wear their own non-medical masks, sanitize their hands upon entry and exit, answer self-assessment health check questions, and provide contact information (name and phone number) before entering the church. Attendees should also expect to sit in designated pews to ensure 6’ physical distancing requirement.
  • Anyone who has symptoms of sickness must remain home.
  • Enter at designated entrance door (for sign-up) and exit through front doors directly after Mass (no social gathering inside the church).
Liturgical Practices
  • No handshaking during the Sign of Peace.
  • At this time, Holy Communion may only be received in the hand and there will be no distribution of the Precious Blood.
  • Singing during Mass is not allowed during this phase, as it has been shown to increase the spread of respiratory droplets which can infect others.

St. Thomas More Catholic Church
Our church looks beautiful at night! The mosaic of St. Thomas More was recently installed, as was the lighting on the cross.
Pastor’s Welcome
 
My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
 
St. Thomas More Parish is a varied and diverse community. We come in all shapes and sizes; we vary in our looks and in our ages. But we share a common belief and are committed to our Catholic Faith. We are members of the Body of Christ. We are His Church.
 
If we want our parish to continue to be vibrant, welcoming, fruitful and prayerful, it is up to each person to do their part. Each of us, from the youngest to the oldest, from the smallest to the biggest, is called to share their time, talent and treasure.
 
Many of you are already involved in the life of our parish. And with your ongoing help, our parish will continue to grow and prosper. I encourage you to ask yourself, “What am I doing for God and my community?”
 
May God continue to bless us all.
 
Fr. Mitchell Fidyka, Pastor
