Guidelines for Returning to Mass

Stage 3 of Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan comes into effect July 1, 2021 and the Archdiocese of Edmonton has provided guidance for the full reopening of parishes:

  • There is no capacity limit in the church. We are very happy to welcome people back to mass at any time.
  • Masks are not mandatory, but you are welcome to wear one if you like. We have extra masks available.
  • Screening and signing in is no longer required. But if you have any COVID symptoms or have been in touch with anyone with COVID, we ask you to stay home and participate in our livestream mass.
  • Please use hand sanitizer on your way in and out.
  • We will continue to clean the pews and high-touch surfaces until our cleaning supplies run out. Your help with this is appreciated. 
  • All of the pews are open. We are using pink cards to designate approximate seating to help people feel comfortable about distancing, but you can be seated as you are comfortable.
  • You are welcome to join the cantor in singing along if you like – likely no choir until the fall and more singers are back.
  • There are no capacity restrictions for weddings, funerals or baptisms.
  • Livestreams will continue until at least the end of August, when the Archbishop will revisit the Sunday mass dispensation.
