Church Reopens

Because some people may be sick, have a compromised immune system, or feel uncomfortable returning to church, the dispensation of the obligation for Sunday Mass remains in effect until further notice.

 

Beginning on Wednesday June 17th our church will reopen for Mass and our normal Mass schedule will resume. We have received some instructions from the diocese:

  1. We can have 30% capacity at each Mass (55). Because of the size of our community this shouldn’t be a problem, however capacity will be on a first come first serve basis. The pews will be mark off as to where you will be able to sit. We are asking those who live under one roof to occupy one pew only.
  2. Every person entering the church above 8 years old is must wear a face mask.
  3. Upon entering and exiting the church, you will have to sanitize your hands.
  4. Anyone entering the church for mass, will have to provide their name and phone number to the usher for contact tracing purposes, should someone that attended mass became ill.
  5. Holy Communion will be distributed by hand only. When proceeding to communion, keep 6 feet distance from individual in front of you.  Stop 6 feet from priest, Priest says “Body of Christ”, you say “Amen” Then receive host on hand, step to the side, remove mask, place host in mouth and replace mask and then proceed back to your seat.
  6. All of the hymnals and missals have been removed from the pews. Singing will be limited to the choir.
  7. If you are sick or don’t feel well please stay home.

More information will be forthcoming as it is made available to us.

Sarnia Mask Bylaw
Is a worship leader required to wear a face covering in a place of worship during the service?

No.

The worship leader is not required to wear a face covering while leading the service. Areas where the public are not normally invited are exempt. The vestibule, pulpit, stage, etc. where the pastor, imam or rabbi stands or sits would not, normally, qualify as an indoor “public” place.

However, the worship leader would need to wear a face covering if in the public area for congregation.

Are worshippers required to wear a face covering in a place of worship during a service?

Face coverings must be worn in places of worship. Attendees may remove their face coverings once seated for the service, only if physical distancing can be maintained.

No person shall attend a gathering to which this section applies unless the following conditions are met:

The number of persons occupying any room in the building or structure while attending the gathering must not exceed 30 per cent of the capacity of the particular room.

The Sarnia Mask By-Law would be applicable within the building, until attendees are seated for the service.

All persons attending the gathering must comply with public health guidance on physical distancing.
