PRESS RELEASE

                                                                                                                                               

May 28th, 2020
 

Good afternoon,
 
We have just learned from a Government of New Brunswick Press Release, that due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in the Campbellton region, the activities previously scheduled to be permitted on May 29 will be delayed by one week to June 5.

Indoor religious services, including weddings and funerals, of 50 people or fewer, are delayed for one week.

We cannot, therefore, reopen our churches this week. Our churches will be open for Sunday Masses once more as of next weekend, June 6th and 7th.

Parish secretaries will have to contact the individuals who registered for this weekend’s celebrations to inform them of the one-week delay. This means that the parishioners will not have to register again, as the current registration lists will serve for attendance at next weekend’s Masses.
 
+ Daniel Jodoin
