Calgary Diocese:

January 15, 2021 MEMORANDUM Limited Restriction Changes Effective January 18, 2021

November 26, 2020 MEMORANDUM New Mandatory Restrictions & Mandatory Masks – Public Health Emergency

October 27, 2020 INFLUENZA + COVID-19

“The Diocese of Calgary strongly recommends to the faithful to, as much as possible, continue to wear the mask while seated in the pews during the Mass. This will help better protect one another in preventing the transmission of the flu and COVID-19. However, exemptions under the municipal bylaws will continue to be respected without requiring proof of eligibility.

This gesture of wearing the mask is a sign of charity and concern for each other’s health. Please see the new poster in the church which highlights a number of health and safety measures to help prevent the spread of the flu and COVID-19.

Thank you for your cooperation.”
