Public Sunday Mass
A Message from Father Kendrick
We should be very grateful that we can begin public Masses. We are continuing to follow the public health guidelines, and as Christians, we are obligated to be good witnesses by adhering to them in full obedience. Remember that it’s not about doing great things, but small things with great love.
Mass attendance will be limited to a maximum of 29 participants and will be by registration only (contact me to register). Seating may be assigned as we need to space people out evenly. Our aisles are not wide enough to walk down and keep social distancing while people are seated, so it will work best if we fill the front pews first, and have people at the back exit first. There will be no singing, as we tend to form more virus-spreading droplets when we sing. We are asked to keep things short, I don’t expect Mass will be much more than 30 minutes. Father will bring communion to the communicants at their seat.
People who are 65 or older or who’s health is compromised, are cautioned to be aware of the risk involved in attending a public gathering. The Sunday obligation is still dispensed, and some may prudently decide to stay home. As is the case in all public places, if you have symptoms, have traveled abroad, or been in contact with an infected person, you must self isolate for 14 days and, for the sake of others, may not enter the church.
I believe it best at this time to ask people to wear non-medical masks as we enter and exit the Churches. According tho the Sask Public Health Measures “Non-medical or cloth face coverings can play an important role in situations and community settings where physical distancing is not possible or is unpredictable….” So please do bring a mask when you come to Mass. We will have some on hand for those who forget or do not have one, but we ask people to bring their own. Thank you for your compliance, and don’t forget to offer up your inconveniences as penance for the conversion of sinners.
Saturday evening at 7:00pm in Loon Lake, Sunday 9:00am in Goodsoil, and 11:00am in Pierceland. See mass times and locations in the bulletin.
