Mass Safety Procedures

Anyone who attends Mass MUST WEAR A MASK to help deter the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The ushers have only a limited number of masks. Please try to remember to bring and wear a mask. Those who are exempted from wearing a mask are those in the sanctuary. Priest, servers, and eucharistic ministers will wear the mask while distributing communion. Thank you for your understanding. I have been informed the by-law provides for a thousand dollar fine for non–compliance.


Weekend masses will be offered on Saturdays at 5:00 pm and at 7:00 am, 9:00 am and 11:00 am on Sundays.

Only the front door and the office entrance door will be open.

Ushers will be directing you once you enter.  Please follow their instructions.

IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL FOR WHATEVER REASON, WE ASK YOU TO REFRAIN FROM ATTENDING.

If you become sick any time within 2 weeks after having attended mass, please let us know so we can follow the necessary protocols and hopefully stop the spread of the virus.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SOCIAL DISTANCE AT ALL TIMES.

We will have special areas designated for people using personal mobility devices.

Only one bathroom will be open for emergency use – the accessible bathroom in the front entrance, on the right hand side closest to the youth room.

We understand that many of you are anxious about attending mass at the moment.  Some of you have access to the masses on Salt and Light and the Archdiocese of Toronto has a wonderful mass with Cardinal Collins that you can access via YouTube.

To those that have been able to assist financially or with prayer during this time we thank you.  Donations are always welcome at the rectory mailbox or online to the Diocese, specifying Holy Rosary GUELPH.

We will be sanitizing all surfaces after each celebration.

Confessions will resume from 4:00 pm to 4:45 before the Saturday evening mass.  Confessions will be in the community room.  Please remember to social distance.

PLEASE DO NOT GATHER ANYWHERE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE THE BUILDING FOR SOCIALIZING.

 

WELCOME BACK!  WITH PRAYER AND THE HELP OF GOD, WE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD IN THIS POSITIVE DIRECTION.
