September 24, 2021 - Update
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus:
Yesterday evening, we received new directives from the NB Minister of Health regarding the sanitary measures to be implemented in our churches. The 4 bishops of NB agree on the following measures requested to make our churches as safe as possible for our faithful.
 
 
1. No proof of vaccination required for Sunday Masses, weekday Masses, baptisms, prayer groups and more.
However, the following measures will apply:
  • Wearing a mask will be compulsory at all times.
  • The occupancy capacity of your place of worship must be limited to 50% or less.
  • A distance of two meters must be maintained between the different households present (family bubbles).
  • Singing will not be allowed in the assembly. However, the songs of soloists and choir are allowed but respecting the 4 meters as before.
  • The names and contact details of all those present should be recorded and the lists maintained.
  • Have masks and bottles of disinfectant available at entrances, in the sanctuary and sacristy, etc.
  • No one showing symptoms of COVID-19 or having been instructed to self-isolate should enter the place of worship.
2.  Proof of vaccination required and maintained for weddings and funerals
All people will need to show full proof of vaccination when accessing certain events, such as weddings, funerals, conferences or workshops. Wearing a mask will be compulsory at all times. For funerals and weddings, there is no distancing required which allows for full capacity and there is no obligation to keep records for those present. But to be admitted, a person must have proof of full vaccination.
For the catechesis of children, we will follow the rules in force in the schools. Catechists should be fully vaccinated. When other adults attend meetings, they should also be doubly vaccinated. For a celebration in the church, we follow the rule in force in our churches.
It is very desirable that the employees of the parish be fully vaccinated. If not, they will need to wear a mask at all times and be tested for COVID periodically according to government policy. 
For access to the secretariat , we will accept any person who comes there to obtain information or a service. If the person is not vaccinated, they will need to wear a mask.
We understand the concerns of Public Health and continue to collaborate by following the guidelines issued to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. We are all concerned about the current situation in the province. I am very grateful to all the parish priests and teams of volunteers who put everything in place to ensure the health and well-being of our faithful.
May the Lord bless us and continue to watch over us!
 
Most Reverend Valery Vienneau
Archbishop of Moncton
