Sunday Masses From a Distance

Until the end of April, Sunday and weekday masses are cancelled in Manitoba.  For the duration of this period, The Archbishop has granted a dispensation from our Sunday obligation (cf. Code of Canon Law, 87).  Pastors are of course will continue to celebrate the Sunday mass privately and offer it for their parishioners.


The Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the very heart of our Catholic life, and I realize that this directive will be a cause of great suffering. However, we observe this as our civic duty at this time, and offer this moment in sacrifice to God for the sake of all who are ill from the COVID-19 virus, as well as all front-line health care providers.
