Yesterday, the Province of Ontario moved into Step 3 of the reopening roadmap. The Step 3 process allows for places of worship to reopen to its maximum providing that safe distancing of 6ft/2m is maintained. Based on this, Nativity of Our Lord can hold up to 220 persons per mass.
For our weekend masses of Saturday 5pm, Sunday 9am and Sunday 11:30am Masses, you continue to need to register using the Eventbrite registration system - please go to the tab marked Weekend Mass Sign Up found at the top centre of the home page of this website.
You can register for weekend mass each Monday beginning at 10 am, by using the link for mass registration that will be on the homepage of the parish website. Please remember that registration closes 4 hours before each weekend mass. At this time walk-ins are permitted, however you will still need to give your name and contact information at the entrance door.
If you are attending a weekend mass, you will enter the church using the EAST entrance (facing the schoolyard). As before, all those attending must wear facial masks and sanitize their hands upon entry, and that you will be seated with the help of our welcoming ushers. The entrance will open 30 minutes before the start of mass.
For our weekday masses, we have resume our regular weekday mass schedule. You will not need to register to attend any of the weekday masses. As before, all attending will use the WEST entrance (facing the grass field). As per the weekend masses, all attending will need to wear facial masks, sanitize their hands and be seated with the help of our welcoming ushers. The entrance will open 30 minutes before the start of mass.
We will continue to livestream a Sunday Mass alternating between the 9am and 11:30am Mass.
Together with our parish staff, I thank and bless all of you for your prayers and support of our parish.
Peace and prayers,
Fr. Michael Machacek.
