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.

confraternityThe Confraternity of St Peter is a sodality of members who wish to unite themselves to the Priesty Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and aid in the work of the FSSP, primarily by their prayers. 

The Confraternity of St. Peter spreads throughout the world, and is divided into three regions: The English-Speaking Region, the French-Speaking Region and the German-Speaking Region. 

Members of the Confraternity of St. Peter (CSP) pray a decade of the Rosary and the Confraternity Prayer each day for the intentions of the CSP. 

The intentions of the CSP are three:

  1. For the sanctification of the members of the FSSP
  2. For vocations to the FSSP
  3. And for the work of the FSSP throughout the world.

What does a member of the Confraternity of Saint Peter do?Members commit themselves to
Every day:    1) pray one decade of the holy rosary for the sanctification of our priests and for our priestly vocations,
