Masses and other liturgical services will be resumed under the strict guidelines of the Provincial Authorities and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver (RCAV).
We will be limiting our Masses to a maximum of 50 people and will be holding Masses in the church and the church hall simultaneously at regularly scheduled weekend mass time. Each person attending the Mass will be pre-registered and only those pre-registered will be allowed into the church or hall for the Mass. For everyone’s safety, there will be no exceptions. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
We have a group of volunteers dedicated to phoning each registered parishioner, but if you have provided your email contact to the Parish, you will also be contacted by email.
Mass Times will be as follows starting on the weekend of May 30/31 and will be booked until the weekend of June 27/28. We are requesting that parishioners only attend a Mass every other week at this time.
|Saturday, 5:00 pm||Saturday, 5:00 pm|
|Sunday, 9:00 am (FRENCH)||Sunday, 9:00 am|
|Sunday, 10:30 am||Sunday, 10:30 am|
|Sunday, 3:00 pm (CHINESE)||———————–|
|Sunday, 5:00 pm||Sunday, 5:00 pm|
If you would like to register for a Mass via email please send the following information to CoquitlamOLF@gmail.com:
- Name of All Attendees. Each person and child will count as 1 each, so please provide all names. (Example: John Doe, Jane Doe, Child Doe.)
- Contact Email. A contact email for at least 1 in the group is requested. This will be used for confirmation of your booking and for future emails of similar nature.
- Mass Location. If you have a preferred Mass location (church or hall) please let us know. We will try our best to place you there; however, if your preferred location is no longer available, the alternate location will be booked and you will be notified.
- The time and days you would like to attend. Start with your preferred dates adhering to alternate weekends first. (Example: May 31st 10:30 am and June 14th 5 pm.)
To attend additional Masses outside of this alternate weekend limit, please call the Parish Office the Thursday before the Mass. If there is available room, you will be added to the list.
Please only come to a Mass if you are booked. Ushers will have the unfortunate responsibility of turning you away regardless of space availability. Again, it is for the safety of everyone and will be in adherence to the Province of British Columbia’s Restart Plan.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we go through this reopening phase. A list of safety protocols is available below. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Office or send an email to CoquitlamOLF@gmail.com
Please remember to follow the instructions of the ushers upon entry and throughout the service. They will be ensuring you are on the list for that mass and location. They will be directing you to seats that will be marked at appropriate distances (keeping members of the same household together).
Follow the signage that will be posted throughout the church and hall.
Note the floor signage to maintain social spacing during communion and during entrance/exit.
There will be one clearly marked entrance and one exit. Direction of travel will be one-way only. Keep your distance during entrance and exit. Please do not be more than 15 minutes early for your mass. We need to ensure that there is no crossover between the mass directly before yours. We also need some turnover time to sanitize the space and touch points.
Note that the bathrooms will be closed and cannot be used during this phase of reopening. Please ensure all members of your group are aware of this.
All books (hymns, missals, etc.) will be removed and will not be available for use.
It is highly recommended that you wear a face mask, but it is not required.
The social etiquettes engrained in us will make this next one difficult, but please NO handshaking or hugs outside of your family/household.
If you are feeling sick or under the weather the day of your mass, please stay home and do not attend. It is okay! Take care of yourself and your community by staying home. Sunday Mass at 9 am and 10:30 am will continue to be streamed live on our Youtube Channel.
