When the public health order allows gatherings in churches to be celebrated, then Sunday Masses will be at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., and weekday Masses will be at 8:30 a.m.  To attend a Mass, please contact the parish office at 306-789-8276 at least one week in advance to register; parishioners will be given priority.  Masks are required when attending church.  Seating will be assigned.  Use Graham Road entrance. 

 

Currently, we are planning for only up to 25 people when the church is used; for weekday Masses, in the hall chapel space, we are planning for only up to 20 people.  With limited seating, and to give all parishioners an opportunity to attend a Mass, parishioners may now register for a Mass once every few weeks for Sunday Masses (but only if seating is available). 

 

Determining available seating is based on the current public health order and includes many factors, such as:  space restrictions due to the 2-meter distancing requirement, the number of people that can be accommodated per pew (varies due to lengths of pews being different), additional maintenance time required after every service, and the amount of time needed to properly manage the seating arrangements.
