Please note the most recent guidelines related to COVID-19 from Archbishop Pettipas on the image below.

While masks are still recommended and highly encouraged, they are not required during weekday and Sunday Masses and other liturgical services. They must still be worn outside the nave and other indoor spaces. These measures are based on the latest COVID-19 protocols and exemptions issued by the provincial government.

Mandatory Masks Bylaw in Effect

 

Dear Parishioners,

Please be informed that in compliance with the City of Grande Prairie and Bylaw C-1426, we will now have mandatory masks upon entering our St. Joseph Parish building. This requirement extends to mass times, meaning all attendees, volunteers, staff and clergy are required to wear masks at all times, with the exception of our regular COVID-19 procedure for communion, and certain roles during the liturgy. We thank you for respecting this new bylaw, and look forward to continuing to see you here at St. Joseph Church.

 




IMPORTANT NOTICE: RE: Email from Archbishop Gerard

Dear Parishioners,

Some of you may have received a strange e-mail requesting money/help from Archbishop Gerard in the past 24 hours. Please be aware that his e-mail account was hacked. If you received requests for money, DO NOT RESPOND- it is not him. His Grace would like to make it clear that he would NEVER request money through an email, and we would like to add that our priests would also never do this. If you ever receive suspicious emails from any of our priests or the Archbishop, please contact the parish or diocesan office to confirm their legitimacy.

Blessings,
St. Joseph Parish




Letter from our Priests- July 2nd, 2020

Please read the following letter from Fr. Remi and our priests regarding the additional 7pm Sunday mass time.




Sunday Mass Registrations

Dear Parishioners,

Please see the links below to register for this Sunday mass and note the recent changes to our registrations for Sundays- we have now increased our capacity of each mass to 100 people per mass (while still maintaining all previous safety protocols and physical distancing requirements) as well as added a 3rd mass at 12pm Noon.

**Please be aware that the dispensation from all Sunday obligations given by Archbishop Gerard is still in effect. This means you are not obligated to attend mass, and we will continue to live-stream Sunday mass on our Facebook page until the dispensation has been lifted.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
