PLEASE NOTE:   

Beginning 1 August 2020, the City of Edmonton has mandated the wearing of facemasks in public areas, including churches (Bylaw 19408). We are required to wear a mask throughout the Mass, except when consuming Holy Communion.

Personal exemptions are allowed in the following cases:

  • persons under the age of 2;
  • persons who are unable to place, use, or remove a face covering without assistance;
  • persons unable to wear a face covering due to a mental or physical concern or limitation, or protected ground under the Alberta Human Rights Act.

 

TO DONATE during this time of restricted access due to the COVID 19 pandemic, please see links below (scroll down). Thank you for your generosity!

Our churches are now open for public Masses, but please note the restrictions below, which are still in place. Please register for weekend Masses (see below).

Resources: General Guidelines for the Reintroduction of Masses

On 26 May 2020, the Archbishop issued his guidelines for resuming the public celebration of Masses. This was undertaken in conjunction with the other bishops of Alberta after seeking the advice of medical experts, and in discussion with the Government of Alberta and the Chief Medical Officer.

For a full text of the Archdiocesan Guidelines, click here.

On June 9th, the Alberta Government announced that the province is moving to Stage 2 of its Relaunch Strategy; this affects attendance at our public Masses. Nevertheless, the Archdiocese of Edmonton will issue in due course revisions to its Guidelines (above). For the moment, attendance at Mass remains restricted to 50 persons, and physical distancing must be respected (2 metre distance between persons unless they are from the same household). Please register for attendance at weekend Masses (see below).

Dear Parishioners,

We are grateful to be preparing now to begin publicly celebrating Masses.

Although we are now permitted to celebrate Masses publicly, things are not back to how they were. There are significant restrictions and conditions that must be met for each Mass that is celebrated during this initial “relaunch”.

The Archbishop of Edmonton has extended the dispensation from the Sunday obligation, and this continues in effect at this time; Masses will continue to be live-streamed as well from the Basilica and some of the parish churches. Please feel free to continue with these. There is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this time.

If you are uncomfortable returning to church, please know that you may stay away at this time. Your safety is our primary concern.

Physical Distancing

We are still required by Alberta Health Services to assure that physical distancing is observed between persons not of the same household or of "cohort families" (click here for AHS's definition). Due to the physical configuration of our church buildings, the requirement of physical distancing still means that fewer than 100 persons can attend any Mass. We are continuing with registrations for weekend Masses.

Registration:

Sunday Masses: At this time, we are ONLY accepting registrations by telephone (no voicemail requests) or by walking into the parish offices at Resurrection church. Registrations by telephone/walk-in will only be accepted Wednesdays to Fridays, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., and only for the upcoming weekend Masses (no advance registration for later weekends).

This will allow equity for all our parishioners, many of whom do not have access to internet or email. It will also allow our reduced staff and our volunteers to handle the requests in the best way possible.

Weekday Masses: will begin as usual on Tuesday, June 9th, and there will be no registration required, but they will be on a “first come – first served basis”.

Restrictions and Protocols:

NOTE: Alberta Health Services is encouraging those with chronic medical conditions, and those 65 and over to seriously think about other ways to practice than physically attending Mass.

  • When you arrive at the church you will have to undergo medical screening (a series of questions) before you can be admitted; if you fail the testing, by law, you may not enter the church even if you have registered.
  • When you arrive you will be asked to provide your name and telephone number for the purposes of contact tracing. The information is held by the parish for two weeks, and it will be available to Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta if they request it.
  • You will be required to wear a face mask when approaching to receive Holy Communion; please try to provide your own mask.
  • Your hands will be sanitized upon entering the church; please ensure that you have properly washed your hands prior to arriving at church (washing with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds).
  • Families may sit together, but otherwise persons must maintain a physical distance of 2 meters (6 ft) at all times.
    • Pews and floors will have designated markers to help maintain physical distancing.
    • Ushers will assist with seating.
    • There can be no socializing before or after Masses in the church building.
    • Children must always remain with their parents.
    • Washrooms are available, but their use is restricted.
  • There will be only one door permitted for entry to the church, and a second for exiting the church.
  • The church will be opened only 15 minutes prior to Masses and will be locked during Masses.
  • The church must be cleaned and sanitized before and after each Mass (we have recruited volunteers for these tasks).
  • No paper items will be available and any items you bring into the church you must take out with you. For this initial phase, no paper bulletins will be distributed.

 Thank you for your patience during the time. As things change so rapidly, we will be reviewing our protocols regularly and adapting them as needed.

 Fr. Philip

Cancellation of all parish Masses and meetings

Due to efforts to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Archdiocese of Edmonton, following indications from the Chief Medical Officer for Alberta, has cancelled all weekday and weekend Masses until further notice:

Since the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the very heart of our Catholic life, the inability to gather for this worship is a cause of great suffering. Let us accept this as our civic duty at this time, and offer this moment in sacrifice to God for the sake of all who are ill from the COVID-19 virus (Archbishop Richard Smith).

To read the Archbishop’s letter, please click here.

Fr. Philip will continue to offer Mass privately (not open to the public) for individual intentions as well as for the spiritual and physical health of all our parishioners.

All meetings of parish groups are likewise cancelled, as are all meetings to prepare for the upcoming sacraments. Sacramental preparation will continue once the ban on gatherings is lifted; the dates of First Communion and Confirmation may have to be changed.

Reduced Office Hours

In order to reduce costs during this difficult time, office hours are reduced. The parish offices will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.          

Saint Vincent de Paul Food Donations

Please note that we are still accepting food donations for the Saint Vincent de Paul Society at this time.  Thank you for your generosity!

We are a varied and diverse community.  We come in all shapes and sizes; we vary in looks and in ages.  We hold much in common.  We all share a belief and a commitment to our Catholic faith.  We are all members of the Body of Christ.  We are his Church.Welcome to the website for the parishes of Assumption and Resurrection.  We are facing an exciting time for the Catholic communities of southeast Edmonton.  

Our diversity makes us strong.  We have much to share.  We will share committees, services, activities, liturgical work, education, socials, and most of all our sacramental and prayer life.  We will welcome each other at our churches and we will work together to build a stronger Catholic presence in this area.  

We want our parishes to be vibrant, welcoming, prayerful, and successful; it is up to each person in the parish to do his or her part.   The Archdiocese of Edmonton, of which we are members, is committed to a program of Stewardship.  Each member, from the youngest to the oldest, from the smallest to the biggest, is needed to share their time, talent and treasure.  Many of you are already involved in ministries and serve the church in varied ways.  We hope you will continue.  With your help our new joint community will grow and prosper.  

This time needs to be a time of cooperation and positive works and words.  Change is not always easy but change can bring about great gifts and marvelous growth.  

Let us pray for the mutual success of our parishes and of the formation of a cohesive and solid faith community.  We are all children of God and have much to gain by partnership and teamwork.  

May God bless the people of Assumption and Resurrection parishes.
