Bishop’s Letter: Protocol for Funerals & Rites for 15 People

May 25, 2020

The Churches and chapels in the Diocese shall take every means necessary to assist in the containment of the Covid 19 virus. 

To this end, the Diocese has prepared and discussed a draft Protocol with the Public Health Office of PEI for the reopening of Churches for Sunday Mass.

The date to re-open Churches for Sunday Mass has not yet been announced.  

However, beginning Monday June 1 Renew PEI Stage Three, allows for indoor gatherings of 15. 

Therefore, I am delegating parish priests to implement this Protocol for Phase Three. 

Be advised that changes to this Protocol may be required when Sunday Masses will be restored by the Public Health Department.
