  • Bishop William McGrattan has extended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. This means that even though public Mass has resumed, Catholics are not obliged to attend Mass while this dispensation is in effect. Those who choose to attend Mass at this time do so at their own risk.

  • Those over age 65 and/or with a chronic medical condition are encouraged to stay home, and anyone with any symptoms of sickness should not come to church. Livestreamed Masses are still available at the Diocese website, www.catholicyyc.ca 

In order to safeguard public health, we are required to follow these guidelines: 

  1. Masses are to be celebrated simply and reverently within a shorter time.

  2. Attendants are required to keep physical distancing (6 feet or 2 meters apart) in all directions between congregants, (with the exception of the same household or cohort family).

  3. Faith services are limited to 15 in-person attendees.

  4. At this time, the interpretation is that the priest is not to be counted as one of the 15. Everyone else is included in the 15.

  5. The Diocese advises that we do not provide any music and/or cantoring at any of the Masses to allow for more of the parishioners to be able to attend.

  6. All attendees are expected to bring their own non-medical mask and wear it during their stay in the church building.

  7. Attendees are required to practice hand sanitizing when they are entering and upon leaving the Church.

  8. ENTRY & EXIT: The Entry Door of the church will open 30 minutes prior to each Mass and it will be closed during Mass. After Mass, everyone will exit through the same door, starting from the last pew.

  9. Please be patient and kind with our volunteers who will ask you some medical questions, your contact information and usher you to your seats.

  10. Pre-registration will be required for anyone who wants to attend. For pre­registration, please call 403-266-2512, or send an email to (info@stfranciscalgary.com or canhvu25@yahoo.ca) with a note of your Mass attendance including Mass time, your name and phone number (and the number of family members and cohort family members).
