DIOCESAN UPDATE ON PUBLIC HEALTH PROTOCOLS
 
29 July 2021
  • STEPS TO RETURN TO NORMALCY:

    Over the next few weeks, Our Lady of Victory and St. Malachy parishes will be implementing an updated protocol on mass celebrations. We have decided to implement these changes on a phased-in basis. Just a reminder that sanitation procedures and the wearing of masks when moving in the church are still in effect.

  • ON THE FIRST WEEKEND OF AUGUST:

    There will be an entrance procession from the church entrance, with Fr. Gregory, the Lector and the Altar Server. The Lector and Fr. Gregory will share the Lectionary at the ambo. Both will sanitize before using the Lectionary. After the final blessing, Fr. Gregory, the Lector and the Server will proceed to the church entrance as was the case in the past. The faithful can greet Fr. Gregory, preferably outside, while keeping face masks on and observing the one-metre rule.

  • ON THE AUGUST 7-8 WEEKEND:

    The seating will be re-organized to represent the change of one-metre distancing. We can resume the procession of the gifts by members of the assembly. Those who bring the offerings to the priest disinfect their hands before doing so and wear a mask.

  • CANTOR AND SINGING:

    At present, no choirs are allowed. The Cantor at St. Malachy will continue and OLV is studying the possibility of having a Cantor to sing parts of the mass. While a Cantor will be singing, it is still not permitted for the congregation to sing along because of the implementation of the one-metre distancing.

  • COMMUNION:

    Fr. Gregory will continue to go to the faithful who will remain at their places.

THE VOICE OF THE CHILDREN

Many have expressed deep concern following the news of the discovery of the bodies of 215 Indian children buried near a residential school in British Columbia.

The Jesuit Forum in Toronto recently published a book Listening to Indigenous Voices. In its presentation it states:
"To engage in this process, we need to listen deeply to what Indigenous Peoples are saying, open ourselves to be transformed by their words, and act based on what they are telling us so that we can begin to address injustices, heal relationships, and bring about a post-colonial Canada."

The book provides a method for 11 group sessions to do just that: listen, open ourselves, act.

If you would like to participate in these group sessions, please register at this link: www.staloysius-stcolumban.com/news-events

Please also invite others, especially friends and neighbors who feel that their culture is not respected, who could add a lot to the discussions.

There will be an initial Zoom meeting on Tuesday, June 29th at 7:00 p.m. to decide on a calendar for meetings. In the meantime, you can order the book at www.novalis.ca.
