Register for Mass
Dear St. Michael Catholic Community.
Please read the attached letter we received from AHS regarding a confirmed case of the Covid Variant from one of our parishioners who attended the 11:00 AM Sunday Mass on March 21, 2021. At the time they attended the Mass they were not exhibiting any symptoms. We cannot stress enough the importance of NOT attending Mass if you or someone you have been in contact with has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid or any of the Variants. The Variants are highly contagious and for that reason we MUST take everyone’s safety into consideration when registering for Mass. We cannot risk the possibility of cluster development at our church that might lead to the church being closed by the authorities. We understand most people want to attend Mass during this Easter time but we ask you to please stay home if you are not feeling well, if you live with someone who has tested positive for Covid or the Variants, if you or someone you have been in contact with has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid or any of the Variants, and/or if you have travelled outside Canada over the past 14 days.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Wishing you and yours a very safe and blessed Easter.

Effective Sunday, December 13, the number of Mass attendees will be limited to 180 people. For this reason, we ask those who wish to attend Mass to register using the link below. This will ensure that we remain compliant with provincial public gathering guidelines and the most recent diocesan guidelines.
You can also register by calling the parish office at 403-249-0423. We are open Mon-Fri from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
DOORS WILL BE CLOSED 5 minutes prior to Mass. This is to ensure that: 1) our volunteers are also able to fully participate and the liturgy, and 2) for our priests to be able to start Mass right on time. Those who are late will not be able to enter even if registered.
WEAR A MASK: In accordance with public health measures, anyone entering the church is required to wear a face covering. Learn more.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: if you are able to help as an usher/hospitality minister or point of entry person at any of our weekend Masses, please contact Marvin Matthews at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 403-249-0423 ext. 158.
NEED TO CANCEL? If you registered but aren’t able to come, please cancel by clicking the “view and manage your order online” link on your confirmation email, or by calling the parish office. This will allow others to be able to attend Mass.
Given these circumstances, we are adopting a no ticket, no entry policy. Walk-ins will only be permitted if, prior to Mass, the number of participants is below the maximum limit. Daily communicants will also have to pre-register for every Mass they wish to attend.
Lastly, all attendees are asked to bring their own non-medical mask.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. While all this may seem onerous, we count on everyone’s cooperation and goodwill to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our parishioners.
Important things to take note of:
- Bishop McGrattan’s decree dispensing Catholics from the Sunday obligation remains. This means that even though public Masses have resumed, Catholics are not obliged to attend Mass and those who attend do so out of their own free will and prudential judgment.
- Use this self-assessment tool. If you have any of the symptoms listed, please stay home.
- ENTRY & EXIT: enter through the west-side main entrance doors as all other entryways will be closed. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each Mass. After Mass, everyone will be asked to exit through the north-side entrance (near Kids Kingdom).
- CHECK-IN: as you enter, the point-of-entry volunteer will ask for your name. You can also show your ticket to the volunteers (either in print or on your mobile device). At this point, they will be asking you questions to verify information needed for contact tracing.
- MASKS: All attendees are asked to bring their own non-medical mask and wear it during their stay in the church building.
- CHANGES IN THE LITURGY: certain parts in the liturgy will be omitted in order to minimize the possibility of viral transmission. This includes the administering of the chalice, shaking hands during the sign of peace, holding hands during the Our Father, and passing the collection basket. Those who wish to make an offering may do so online at saintmichael.ca/giving or by texting give to 438-700-8739.
- BUILDING ACCESS: when coming for Mass, use the west-side main entrance. When visiting the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, parish office, or when coming for Confession, use the south entrance doors near the office.
What St. Michael’s is doing to ensure your safety:
- Implementing a more frequent cleaning and sanitizing schedule. This includes sanitizing the sanctuary seats after every Mass, washrooms, and other high-contact surfaces.
- We’ve made several hand sanitizing stations available throughout the church building.
- Designating specific entrance and exit-only points to ensure traffic flows in one direction
- Blocking off certain sections in the sanctuary to ensure physical distancing during Mass
