New Restrictions in Peel – Reminder

Thank you, dear parishioners, for taking quick action and communicating your concerns to the Region of Peel.

We’re pleased to report that the region has revised their guidance for places of worship as of this morning. The Archdiocese of Toronto has confirmed that Peel parishes that have social distancing and other safety measures in place “can continue to operate liturgical celebrations (Mass, Weddings, Funerals, Baptism, etc) at 30% capacity.”

We remind you that 30% of our church’s capacity is 270 people.

We therefore ask you, once again, to please consider your attendance at the 11:00 am Sunday Mass for children. If you are not coming to this Mass with a child, we urge you to attend a different Mass. There are Masses available at 8:00 am, 9:30 am (English), 1:00 pm, and 6:00 pm on Sundays. Remember, its not about which Mass you attend, but about attending Mass at all. Priority admission to the 11:00 am Mass will be given to families with children, and once we are at capacity, we will unfortunately have to turn others away.

It would be a shame to turn you away, but also a shame to lose this battle after fighting so hard to be able to keep our permitted capacity at 30%. Yesterday’s experience showed us how close we are to tighter restrictions. We therefore remind you, also, not to linger outside in large groups before or after Mass, and that social distancing must be observed at all times.

We really appreciate you adjusting your schedules and all of your hard work to keep our parish safe and open.

Notice to Parishioners: New By-Law Requires Mandatory Use of Masks at Church

As you may have heard in recent days, a new by-law has been passed that makes the use of masks or face coverings inside all public places mandatory. This includes churches and our own parish. I would ask that all those coming to church bring a mask or face covering and wear it upon entering the church.

I recognize that this may be an inconvenience yet I know that we are all committed to caring for our neighbour and those around us. While a number of restrictions have been lifted in recent days, we are still in the middle of a pandemic and need to take the appropriate steps to minimize any potential spread of Covid-19. So while the Archdiocese of Toronto had highly recommended wearing a mask while in church and I know that most of you have been doing so, it is now a by-law that we must follow.

  • Priests do not need to wear masks in the sanctuary while celebrating Mass but should ensure they are wearing a mask when distributing Holy Communion and any other setting where they are in close proximity (less than 2m/6 ft) to parishioners. Lectors should remove masks to proclaim the Word of God.
  • Parishes are not required to distribute masks
  • Exceptions to the by-law include people who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons (trouble breathing or unable to remove a mask without assistance) and children under two years old. Proof of a medical condition is not required.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation as we do all that we can to take care of one another and keep our community safe and healthy.
