Parish Regulations for Attending Church Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Preventive measures for safe places of worship – COVID-19

Kindly read the regulations in their entirety to ensure that you clearly understand all the rules and recommendations that you are required to follow while attending Sunday Liturgy. Volunteers will be in the church building during the Sunday Liturgy to assist you and to provide you with instruction.
If you are looking for a way to touch lives with the love and hope of Jesus Christ, consider volunteering. Volunteers are very much needed to keep the church open for Sunday Liturgy. Kindly consider volunteering at least one Sunday in September or October.

CHORAL SINGING & COVID-19
Rehearsals are on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. in the church hall. New members are always welcome. For more information, please contact Helena Waverchuck at (514) 620-9494.
Effective October 8, 2021, choristers may sing, standing a distance of two (2) meters apart. According to the Quebec government, the mask is not compulsory while singing, however due to our own choristers' concerns, the wearing of masks will be required.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and safety concerns, a majority of singers expressed a willingness to sing under the condition that others wear masks and are double vaccinated.
LITURGY IN OTTAWA
Tragedy has befallen the Assumption of the Blessed Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral parish in Ottawa with the sudden falling asleep in the Lord on June 23, 2021 at the age of 51, their beloved pastor Fr Ihor Okhrimtchouk. In their hour of need and with the approval of our parish council (and blessing of Vladyka Andriy) our dean, Fr Volodymyr, has gratefully agreed to travel to Ottawa once a month in order to celebrate a Divine Liturgy. The first Sunday of the month we will introduce a trilingual Divine Liturgy celebrated by a longtime friend of our parish, Fr Steven Bigham. The bilingual Service of the Typika will not be served.
