As announced by Premier Ford, the Province has moved to Step 3 of the Reopening Plan effective July 16, 2021. Parishes are now able to make the following changes to our litugical practice.
- We may now re-introduce or increase the number of liturgical ministers: Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Communion as needed, Altar Servers.
- Dialogue with individual communicant as they approach the minisster for Communion resumes ( “The Body of Christ / Amen” )
- Following consultation with medical advisors, reception of Holy Communion on the tongue is now permited. However, those who wish to receive the Eucharsit in this manner are to do so after all others have received Communion in the hand, and are to receive Communion from the Priest. We are reminded that the normative posture for receiving Communion in Canada is standing.
- Please note: Capacity limits have ended but we are still required to maintain social distancing, sanitize hands upon entry and to wear a face covering ( as medically able)
The previously announce dispensation from the obligation to participate at Mass on Sundays and Solemnities, granted by His Excellency Bishop Douglas Crosby OMI, remains in effect at this time.
During these extraordinary times when not everyone is able to make it to church due to COVID-19, Living with Christ is pleased to offer FREE mass texts, which are updated on a weekly basis: Living with Christ website
