ST. PATRICK’S: LATEST NEWS
WEBSITE WILL BE DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE
The scheduled maintenance on the website that was put off last weekend will most likely take place over the next few days. During this time, the website will be unavailable. Please visit our parish Facebook Page for information during that period of down time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
GOOD FOOD BOX ORDERS/DELIVERIES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE CASH EXCHANGE NATURE OF THE SERVICE!
Please contact Mary Bartman at 403-281-4577 for further information.
Help keep St. Patrick’s open for Adoration and Confessions. You can still give your donation to the church through the Diocese of Calgary “Donate to Your Parish” page by clicking on the “Donate” button.
When Entering the Church:
PLEASE OBSERVE PHYSICAL DISTANCING OF 2 METERS AND MAXIMUM OF 15 PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH AT A TIME—THIS INCLUDES FAMILY MEMBERS!!
If you are aged 60 and above, or have a chronic illness, please protect yourself by staying home. We are not permitted to let you enter the main church.*
FOR THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
People of ALL AGES who would like to have their Confessions heard must access the Narthex from the main front doors of St. Patrick’s Church. Chairs will be set up outside for people to use as they wait their turn (weather-permitting). No appointments are taken. First-come, first-served basis, only.
We have also created an online sign up schedule to ensure that we have a minimum of 3 adorers in the church to keep company with our Lord. Click HERE for that Eucharistic Adoration schedule.
*Due to the risk of transmission:
Persons 60 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions are not permitted (this does not include our Reconciliation schedule—everyone is still able to access the Sacrament of Reconciliation following strict protocols) as per the Legal Requirements of the Law.
Under this mandate, we have unfortunately been compelled to turn away some of our faithful parishioners from Adoration in the main church. Please understand we are heartsick over this and wish the circumstances were different. If you fall into those at-risk categories, help us help keep you safe by remaining at home and going into quiet contemplation of Our Lord. Thank you for your understanding in these very difficult times.
