MASSES TO RESTART ON MONDAY JUNE 1st

Dear Faithful,

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. The ban, imposed on all faithful Catholics of the Archdiocese of Edmonton by our authorities, of attending any masses will be lifted on Monday the 1st of June. Deo Gratias. 

This is indeed joyful news. However, in order to resume public masses, there are many restrictions that we will need to abide by and some are pretty dour.

Below you can find the links to His Grace’s letter as well as the News Release. Or you can click here and here. And here is the guidelines.

WE ARE NOW ABLE TO HAVE A LARGER THAN 50 NUMBER OF PEOPLE ATTENDING. Priority will still be given on a last name basis, but from Saturday prior everyone can register and now there is a good chance you will be able to register regardless of last name or whether you are a regular chaplaincy mass goer. Please read instructions before registering.

The 12:30 pm and 1:45 pm masses at Assumption and 4 pm mass at St. Edmund's are confirmed and registration is now open. All masses will be low masses without distribution of communion.

Week-day masses are first come first served. Everyone so far who has come has been able to attend mass. I don't foresee more that the maximum occupancy attending our week-day masses for now.

Named after the Venerable Vital Grandin, first bishop of St. Albert, and acting under the pastoral direction of the Archbishop of Edmonton, the Vital Grandin Chaplaincy has the pastoral care of those faithful of the Edmonton Archdiocese who are attached to the former liturgical rites, called the extraordinary form of the Roman rite, or simply the Traditional Latin Mass.

The chaplaincy, which has been around for over 20 years, was known as the Edmonton Latin Mass Community until recently and since 2005 it has been served by the priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), a society of apostolic life of pontifical rite, established by St. John Paul II in 1988.

Throughout our existence we have continued to slowly grow, and even though we are still what some might consider a small group of devout faithful, we are now averaging 250 Sunday mass goers split between our two Sunday locations.

We welcome everybody and invite you to join us, so that together we may strive to increase in our spiritual lives, our virtues, and love of God through this most majestic of liturgies entrusted to us.

We look forward to meeting you!

Fr. Massimo Botta
Chaplain
