We are now able to have 50 % capacity at Mass but households continue to have to be spaced 2 metres from each other. Depending on group size, in practical terms, this means we can accommodate about 110 people in the church. However, we have overflow seating in the hall if we cannot seat everyone in the church. Seats in the church are on a first come, first serve basis.
We still request that you pre-register for Mass (email firstname.lastname@example.org) - but this is only to make the check-in process faster and easier. Advance registration eliminates the need to sign in at the door, but you can absolutely attend Mass without registering! Pre-registration is definitely appreciated but not required.
The Mass Schedule is below,

Now that the city of Winnipeg is in the Code Red level of the Pandemic Response, we are no longer permitted to have Mass; both weekday and weekend Masses are canceled until at least December 11 (we will keep updating as we receive information from the government.) We will continue, of course, to have our Sunday Mass livestreamed at 9 am every Sunday, and we will begin livestreaming our Wednesday Mass and Holy Hour on Wednesday, November 24.

Our church capacity for Mass is 30% but there has to be 2 metres distance between groups. We have found this means we can seat about 115 people in the sanctuary, and any extra people can be seated in the hall. Since we rarely reach capacity, we no longer require pre-registration in order to attend Mass. Please join us!
Masks are now mandatory in public spaces in Winnipeg, except for children under 5 and people with a disability / medical / cognitive condition that makes wearing a mass difficult / dangerous.
Updated July 25, 2020
Beginning July 25, and following the Phase 4 Reopening guidelines, we will be increasing our capacity to 100 people in the church sanctuary, with an additional 50 people seated in the hall
Although we are allowed more people, we must still observe the social distancing rule of keeping 2 metres apart from others (except family groups, or individuals who have travelled to church together.)
Everyone must continue to use hand sanitizer when they enter, sign a contact tracing form, and, please wear a mask (unless physically unable to do so) for your own safety and that of others in our parish. If you don't have a mask, one of our parishioners has kindly been sewing masks for others to take.
After Mass, please sanitze your pews, and then leave the church in an orderly fashion (being sure to keep 2 metres distance again). Please visit with friends outdoors, not in the atrium.
Even with the increased capacity, we are requesting that people continue to register ahead of time for Mass by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
On June 6 & 7, we will resume our weekend Masses at their usual times! In addition, we will continue to offer an on-line Mass for those who cannot attend.
We have been looking forward to this day for many weeks now, and are happy that we can now physically worship together, albeit in a small group for now. However, as we return to worshipping together, we have to respect and follow the guidelines and protocols put in place by the province of Manitoba and the Archdiocese of St. Boniface. Click here to see the Archdiocesan protocol at a glance.
Here are some initial guidelines that we have put in place in order to proceed with re-opening our parish:
Archbishop Legatt has granted a dispensation from the Sunday obligation to physically attend to the faithful. This dispensation will be in effect until the end of the pandemic. The faithful are strongly encouraged to participate in Sunday Mass through live-streaming / on-line Masses, whether from a parish, the diocese or some other source.
Archbishop Legatt, from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface speaks about the loosening on the restrictions of gatherings:
