Bishop’s letter lifting the dispensation on Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022

Step 3 effective June 16, 2022

As the province continues the easing of health and safety restrictions, we are all asked to exercise respect, charity, and kindness with one another and to be conscious of the varying comfort levels of people especially in the following areas:

People are free to continue the use of facemasks if they choose to. This applies to everyone including the clergy and to anyone serving in a liturgical capacity.

In order to respect people’s personal space and comfort level, it would be a prudent practise to allow for some distance between people of different households.

For the sign of peace, we are asked to exchange peace with those outside of our household with a bow or a nod and not by a handshake.

In social settings, it would be charitable not to presume that others are comfortable to shake hands or to hug.

People who have symptoms not related to a pre-existing condition should avoid going to the church or being in public as a courtesy to others.

We are all encouraged to observe proper hand hygiene by sanitizing our hands at any of the sanitizer stations in the church or by washing our hands regularly with soap and water.

We are encouraged to observe respiratory etiquette, such as coughing or sneezing into a bent elbow and the prompt disposal of any used tissues in trash cans.

At this time, we continue to pace our walk together with a lot of care and concern for the good of everyone.

With a grateful heart, we say thanks to all workers in our critical infrastructure industries and those who courageously help others. These are today's heroes, the people who work tirelessly serving others.

We encourage you to share your gratitude with our everyday heroes, to the many people – men, women, adults and children – who have shown kindness and determination throughout the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pray for them.
Send them an email, postcard or show the love on your front door/windows
Say thank you whenever you see them serving in health care facilities, grocery stores, gas stations, banks, those delivering your packages or those who are ready to listen.

Thank you for being the heart of Jesus
