Covid-19 Update July 1, 2021

 

The Province of Alberta has announced that Alberta's Open for Summer Plan will enter Stage 3 on Thursday, July 1, 2021.

 

There will be an evaluation of specific protocols over the summer months.

  • As we prepare to welcome parishioners back, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues and will be evaluated at the end of August 2021.
  • Parishes within municipalities that have a mask bylaw in place should follow the local bylaw of that municipality. We understand that this may be different from region to region across the Archdiocese.
  • Beginning July 1, 2021, preregistration for mass and contact tracing no longer need to take place. There is no capacity limit.
  • Mass Volunteers - we ask that you continue to sign up in advance online.  A volunteer sign-up has been created in Event Brite for July  and August.
  • Hand sanitizing stations remain as we continue to follow health directives for good hand hygiene. Parishioners may feel comfortable wearing masks. You may continue to do so.
  • If you have COVID symptoms, you should stay home and follow AHS directives.
  • Hospitality after mass can take place.
  • At the discretion of the Pastor, Holy Water Fonts can be filled.

  Mass (Sunday and weekday)

  • The celebration of mass will look very similar to pre-pandemic time. You may once again have Servers, Lectors, Music Ministers, Greeters/Ushers and Sacristans.
  • The Sign of Peace: please continue to offer one another the sign of peace by a bow. A return to a handshake will be evaluated by the end of August 2021.
  • The distribution of Holy Communion will continue to be under one species, the Body of Christ.
  • Music Ministry: All mass parts can be sung. It is left to the discretion of the Pastor and Music Ministers as to physical distancing etc. Congregational singing is allowed.

Weddings (With Mass and Outside of Mass)

  • There is no capacity limit.

Funerals (Funeral Mass or Funeral Liturgy outside of Mass)

  •  There is no capacity limit.
  • Please follow guidance from AHS on Funeral Receptions.


Bible Study to Resume in September

 

Dates will be announced closer to the time!

For information or any questions please call Claire Connell (780) 887-0468.


Eucharistic Adoration at St. Vital to Resume in September

Please note - Friday Adoration will continue in September.

There will be no Friday Adoration  during July and August.

 


Please continue your Sunday Collection at this difficult time

Each week you are invited to contribute in the Sunday Collection and offer the fruits of your labor to our Lord in thanksgiving. In the absence of Sunday mass, our parish will suffer financially. As good stewards, it is important to realize that many of the everyday expenses to run our parish will continue.

 

We know that these are financially challenging times. You may have lost your job, or your business viability may be threatened. Your savings may have been diminished by market conditions. And we understand that your primary financial responsibility is to your own home and family.


We ask that you also remember your spiritual home, our parish. There are many ways to submit your donations:

  • E-Transfer donations are now accepted using: StVital.Beaumont@caedm.ca
    Please include in the message box:
    a. Donation amount
    b. Your Full Name
    c. Your Full Address
    d. Any special instructions (eg. Parish Fund, Maintenance Fund, and/or Together We Serve).

If your message box does not allow for all this information, please send the parish this information in a separate email If you have questions or concerns, please contact the parish office 780-929-8541.
