On June 8, 2020, the Province announced that churches are permitted to open for prayer and worship, effective June 12, 2020.
The initial phase of reopening will limit church attendance to 30% capacity. Churches in the Diocese of Hamilton that have satisfied government and health requirements will be opened on June 16th for weekday Mass and prayer, and on Saturday, June 20th for the celebration of Sunday Mass.
It is important to remember that the COVID-19 Pandemic is not over, and that everyone must continue to pay attention to the measures being put in place to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Please see Bishop Crosby’s letter to parishioners below for a list of requirements for entry into the church.
“As we welcome this first stage of returning to our parish churches and resuming our public worship, let us continue to be united in prayer for one another and especially for those who, for whatever reason, are not able to join us at the Table of God’s Word and the Table of Christ’s Body and Blood,” writes Bishop Crosby.
