Those intending to be present are requested to inform the Parish Office ([email protected] or 604-685-2532) by 4:30 pm on Thursday of the previous week. Attendance in church is limited to 50 persons.
Physical distance will be observed, and the pews marked accordingly. The wearing of masks will be strongly encouraged, and masks will be available. There will be no singing and no coffee hour. The washrooms will be available for “emergency” use only.
For the time being this will be the only public service in St. James’. Nonetheless, the Church’s life of prayer and intercession continues. Those who live close to St. James’ may hear the Angelus ring from the tower: this is an audible sign that the Church is praying for the parish, the DTES, the medical services, and for a swift resolution to this pandemic.
