Restrictions Lifted For Worship Services

On June 30, the Provincial Health Office announced there are no capacity limits or restrictions on indoor or outdoor religious gatherings and worship services.

In his letter to the diocese, Bishop John Stephens strongly recommends continued wearing of masks, social distancing, non-physical greetings, and sanitizing of hands and surfaces. Please take the time to read his full letter with all recommendations and guidelines on our Covid-19 Update page. Highlights include a return to congregational singing and gathering for coffee hour after the service.

To our members who are not comfortable or ready yet to come for the in person gathering, please know that this is still very okay. You can still join us in our live streaming services at facebook.com/stmarysapperton/videos/.

Thank you all for the preparation done so that we can start our in-person services: Bob for the sound system, the women’s group and Uncle Bart for the cleaning and coffee hour, the altar guild and counters, the choir, and everyone who is helping us start smoothly as we resume in person gathering.
