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.
