St. Emerence Parish, Riviere Qui Barre

TEMPORARY HOURS (during COVID-19)

Masses will be celebrated for the 1st stage of return from lockdown. We are following our previous regularly scheduled masses times with the addition of at 7pm mass on Saturday evenings to accommodate 4 masses per weekend. (one for each church so everyone has an opportunity to attend mass in their own parish). The 7pm mass slot will be filled with the parish that was not having a mass in the previous 3 mass/weekend schedule.

See the current MASS SCHEDULE

Church occupancy is restricted to a maximum of 50 people at any one time due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

 Our parishes are forming committees within each individual parish to organize volunteers to ensure training and implementation of all the guidelines and protocols set forth. We will be informing people thru our online bulletin, text messaging and our website. We are unable to start with a weekday mass as there will be a shortage of volunteers to carry out the protocols as attendance is very small on a weekday (most being over the age of 65) and volunteers are generally still working at their jobs so can not help on a weekday. Masses also were not previously celebrated in our 4 parishes during the week prior to Covid for this reason.

Please be considerate of other parishioners and limit your visit.
