The Covid-19 task force advised the Archbishop that in-person services could resume on February 6, 2022, with appropriate Covid protocols in place.  All Saints will continue to Livestream the service for those who are not comfortable with meeting in person yet.

This is part of the Archbishop's letter:

Parishes in the Diocese of Calgary may return to in-person worship starting on Sunday, February 6, but it is strongly recommended that parishes should consider extending the in-person service suspension voluntarily for one or two more Sundays after that as we wait for hospitalization numbers to peak. Please encourage your parishioners to do all they can to slow the spread of COVID, and to stay healthy in other ways, thereby doing their part to help reduce demand on healthcare providers and the health care system overall.

Parishes that choose to return to in-person worship should be extra diligent in observing restrictions and should consider temporarily expanding protocols designed to mitigate the spread of the virus, i.e. not allowing congregational singing. 

Thank you once again for persevering through this difficult time and the shifts and changes of our common life as members of the Body of Christ. While we should never downplay or underestimate the difficulties that many have face, I am also reminded of the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Romans. “ all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 8:37ff)
