Restrictions Update February 8

On February 8, 2022, the Province of Manitoba by Public Health Order relaxed capacity restrictions for faith-based gatherings such that we can have 25% capacity of the church or 250 people, whichever is lower.

This means that we can have 75 people in the church for our services.

And we continue with MANDATORY MASKING and SOCIAL DISTANCING within the Church.

You do not have to pre-register for services any longer. There will be a contact sheet at the entrance of the church as we have had in the past.

Theophany of our Lord 2022

O you faithful, come and see where Christ was baptized,
that we may further follow Him to the river Jordan,
and so may draw near to the voice crying in the wilderness,
and behold there how the Creator of Adam suffers His head
to be touched by the hand of a servant in His ineffable loving-kindness.
And let us cry aloud to Him:
You have come and appeared in the Jordan to sanctify the waters.
