Revised Live In-Church Guidelines

Bishop Sam has provided this External link opens in new tab or windowvideo link to announce changes to operations within our Diocese as a result of Wednesday's announcement by the Chief Medical Officer of Heath, Dr Janice Fitzgerald.  We would encourage you to take the time to listen to Bishop Sam as he so eloquently articulates what is and is not permitted, as we all try to celebrate this Easter season.


You are reminded that pre-registration is required.  Click here to pre-register online, or call our office at 834-4501.


There are several key changes from our previous Level-2 state, which we will highlight below.  However, please be sure to read the complete Diocesan guidelines by External link opens in new tab or windowclicking here.

  • Parishes may resume operations based on February 01, 2021 version of the "Many Members - One Body" (MMOB) guidelines document
  • At indoor gatherings, masks must be worn by all people at all times, except to consume the Eucharist
  • The maximum capacity at indoor gatherings is reduced to 50, however, Sunday School, Godly Play, Confirmation Group and other Faith Based gatherings for children remain suspended
  • Only single household units may sit together
  • A maximum of 30 minutes of singing is permitted within a 60 minute service
  • Virtual or curb-side drop-off  fundraising may resume with a maximum of 50 volunteers in the building


As per the Diocesan mandate our Parish Office is closed to the public until further notice.  However, we are still working remotely, and are accessible to you by the following methods:


We kindly ask for your patience in allowing our administrator to facilitate the switch to working remotely.  Messages and emails may not be returned as efficiently as normal during this transition period.


The Candle - Our Weekly Newsletter

For many years now, our Parish has published our weekly information bulletin, The Candle, that was handed out at each Sunday service.  It was our way to keep our Parishioners informed about what was happening in our Parish, and a medium to seek support when we needed it.  The current COVID pandemic has offered many challenges to our community, none the least of which is our ability to physically gather together in person on a weekly basis for our faith worship.  We also loose the ability to "really" carry out some of our traditions that helped bind and grow our family spirit.


The Candle, like most other things these days, is now shared digitally, and can be found not only on External link opens in new tab or windowour website, but we also attempt to email it to those for whom we have contact information for.  To get added to that distribution list, simply External link opens in new tab or windowclick here to send us your details.


We would also like to ask you that if you have any items you would like to share, such as birthday greetings (oh how we miss the fun spirit of our Birthday Sundays) or anniversaries, or even an article that you may have seen or read that you feel others might enjoy, please feel free to pass them along to communications@allsaintsparish.ca.   Together we can start "feeling together" once more - if not in body, then in spirit.


Also, as you will note when you read The Candle, you have the opportunity to bring special attention to a loved one by actually sponsoring The Candle for a given week, or even place a full page memorial, complete with a picture.


Do we have your eMail address ??

We would love to have your email address so that we may include you in our email bulletins and information notices.  Please click here.

Our Alongsider's Team would like to make their current monthly prayer services available to you simply by External link opens in new tab or windowclicking here.


Alongsiders are members of our Parish who, due to circumstances of sickness, mobility, age, etc., can not physically attend a worship service at our Church.  However, they still want to be part of the worship, and where possible, to help from home.  The Alongsiders program accomplishes this.  Each month, a service for each Sunday is prayerfully put together, similar to the in-Church service, and is then delivered to each Parishioner as part of a home visit.  A vital part of our ministry is ‘praying alongside’ our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Currently we have 14 members in the Parish of All Saints.
