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 Vital Grandin Chaplaincy is a proponent of Sacred Music for Mass. Our community supports a men & women's choir, a men's schola and now a children's choir.

Men & Women's choir

The men and Women's choir practice every Friday evening at 7pm. New members always welcome. If you want to join our choir come speak with our choir director after Mass.

Schola

Schola is group of men who sing the propers of the mass (the propers are sung Gregorian chant) that are in the missal and change every Sunday.

If you want to join the Schola speak with our choir director after Mass.

Children's Choir

Volunteers has begun to teach a children's choir. Children and quick learners and grasp music concepts easily. A link to the children's choir web page will be added soon.
