In-Person Worship Suspended due to Public Health Emergency
Starting September 26, 2021

This page was last updated September 19, 2021. Watch for further changes.

The Church is closed for in person Eucharist service.

We will comply with Diocesan and AHS COVID proctocols . These may be revised as we are directed.   Here is part of the Archbishop latest letter.

 As of Wednesday, September 15, 2021, the Province of Alberta has declared a State of Public Health Emergency because of the load on our public health system due to the fourth wave of COVID-19. Current numbers of hospitalizations and ICU admissions now exceed anything that we experienced in the first three waves.  ... The situation has moved beyond critical. 

Although temporary restrictions announced yesterday do allow for continued in-person worship in places of worship, the rationale for this does not seem to be in line with other announced restrictions. We recognize that our gatherings do present a risk of adding to the burden on the healthcare system, and we believe it is wise to err on the side of caution and to do what we can to mitigate this risk to the fullest extent possible. 

To this end, the Archbishop, on the advice of the Diocesan COVID-19 Taskforce, will be suspending in-person worship in the Diocese of Calgary after this coming Sunday, September 19. In-person worship will be suspended for four Sundays starting on September 26. The situation will be assessed in four weeks to determine if an extension of the suspension is warranted. Other church-related in-person activities should also be suspended during this period.
