This year, our celebrations of the Liturgies of Holy Week and the Sacred Paschal Triduum will be like no others. In accordance with the requirements set out by the Chief Medical Officer for Alberta and the directives of Archbishop Smith, priests will celebrate the liturgies privately, with no congregation present. We are very sorry. What a joy it will be when we can all gather together in the church again! For now, we invite the faithful to join these celebrations ‘virtually,’ through video livestreaming from our own parish or from St. Joseph’s Basilica with Archbishop Smith.

Please join with us in prayer for a rapid end to the COVID-19 virus.   May God grant healing to those who are ill, and eternal rest to those who have died. May the Lord’s blessing come upon our medical professionals and civic authorities, who continue to strive with enormous effort and great skill to keep all of us safe.

Please read the attached is the letter sent out March 16, 2020 from Archbishop Smith to the faithful of the Archdiocese of Edmonton. The more who are aware of our present situation more effective all the measures taken against this virus will be.  For the duration of this week we will have regularly scheduled Reconciliation 30 minutes prior to scheduled Mass times. During the scheduled weekday Mass times we will have adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for those who wish to come to the church to pray.  Please check back regularly for updates as things transpire. God’s blessings to all and thank you for your patience during this challenging time in our community and our world.

When unable to receive the Eucharist, we can make a Spiritual Communion. This is a prayer in which we ask our Lord to come to us in the same way He would if we were able to receive the Sacrament.

My Jesus,

I believe that You are truly present in the Holy Eucharist.

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there,

and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.  Amen

St. Alphonsus Liguori (A.D. 1696-1787)
