Mass Registrations for Sundays

Due to the latest covid restrictions, the Mass registration system is being implemented again:

https://vitalgrandinchaplaincy.ca/register

The wearing of a mask is required for all ceremonies and meetings on church property, with the exception of those who have an approved AHS letter of exception; The two-metre spacing rule between households/individuals has been implemented as well.

Due to the situation, the obligation to attend Mass on all Sundays and Dec. 25th and Jan. 1st has been dispensed with in all of Alberta.

Holy Communion on the tongue has resumed.

For group registration, if a family usually occupies a full pew (which usually seats 3 or 4 single-household individuals spaced apart), please only register four to six of your household.

This is due to the church having a maximum restricted capacity based more on single-person households having to space more than close-sitting large families.

If a family usually needs one of the longest pews to seat their whole family, please email/phone/text us after registering, and the requested pew can be reserved; if cancelling, please email or text Fr. Blust.

The Lex Orandi Children’s Choir is welcoming children between the ages of 6-16 to join.

Weekly rehearsals take place at Resurrection Church.

The Lex Orandi Choir is a group of children devoted to singing sacred music of the Roman Catholic Church.

The young choristers will study and sing music of our Roman Catholic Church, singing timeless Gregorian chant along with beautiful sacred, polyphonic music. They will be exposed to and take part in the plethora of music which was born from the Liturgy of the church. A repertoire that includes chant dating from the earliest days of the church, to music composed by thriving contemporary sacred-music composers.

Children will sing music composed by Renaissance masters such as Palestrina, Lassus, compositions by composers of the Baroque and Classical eras, including Bach and Mozart, while also composers notable of our 21st century such as Chicago-born, Kevin Allen.

Alongside this repertoire, the children will develop sight-singing skills, how to read chant, notation/basic semiology and acquire fluency in singing solfège. Such training shall develop individual skills in the areas of listening, musical expression, intonation and balance through their ensemble singing. An ensemble singing that is enriched by opportunities to eventually sing 4-part polyphony with an accompanying adult choir. All of this is aimed at developing the future choristers, cantors, organists and musicians who will be equipped with the ability and knowledge to serve our Church. As part of their rehearsals, Fr. Blust will give a brief catechism lesson to further deepen the children's understanding and connection of chant and liturgy. These children will inherit the traditions of our Church, providing every church of our archdiocese with beautiful music that will enrich the mass and our spiritual lives as Catholics.
