Mass Safety Procedures

Important Information Update – July 10, 2020

Wellington County has informed the Diocese and public all who attend Masses this coming weekend 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.


The church will reopen for weekday masses at 9:00 am beginning Tuesday, June 16, 2020.

Weekend masses will resume Saturday June 20, 2020 at 5:00 pm followed by Sunday masses at 7:00 am, 9:00 am and 11:00 am.

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 necessary protocol 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.

The last live streamed mass from Holy Rosary will be on Sunday June 14, 2020.  We understand that many of you are anxious to begin coming to 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, online to the Diocese, specifying Holy Rosary GUELPH and hopefully soon, we will have a donation site on this website.

We will be sanitizing all surfaces after each celebration.  Although masks are not mandatory for places of worship you are welcome and encouraged to wear one.

The church office remains closed.  Endrina monitors the phone and email inquiries from home and will continue to respond.

Confessions will resume June 20, 2020 at 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.
