NORTHERN HEALTH REGIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH ORDERS EXTENDED
Northern Health (NH) is maintaining current regional public health orders covering most of the NH region, in response to sustained rates of COVID-19 activity and the impact on health care resources.

NH and provincial public health officials continue to evaluate levels of COVID-19 activity and its ongoing impacts on the health care system, individuals, and communities. At this time, NH Medical Health Officers have determined there remains a need for regional public health measures to limit transmission, reduce case counts, and reduce rates of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths in the North.

The Northern Health Gatherings and Events COVID-19 Order was originally implemented October 14, 2021 with an expiry date of midnight, November 19.  Effective midnight, November 18, the Order expiry date has been removed, and current measures will remain in effect pending further assessment of the region’s COVID-19 status.

Vaccination is the best line of defence against COVID-19. While immunization rates continue to increase in larger centres across the north, some parts of the region still have some of the lowest vaccination rates in BC. There are ongoing vaccine clinic opportunities throughout the region; find a clinic near you.


CATHEDRAL IS OPEN FOR INDIVIDUAL PRAYER AND QUIET REFLECTION
To allow parishioners to have an opportunity to pray before the Blessed Sacrament, the Cathedral will be opened daily from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. Parishioners may spend time for private prayer inside the Church.

Those who will visit the Cathedral should observe the following:
  • wear a face covering or mask
  • sanitize hands as you enter the main Church
  • in case there are other parishioners when you visit, please maintain physical distancing and do not congregate.
We will continue to LIVESTREAM weekday and Sunday Masses.

SOLEMNITY, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE
The last week of Liturgical Year is devoted to eschatological themes: Christ the King will restore all creation and restore his kingdom to the Father.  The risen people of God will rejoice in a new heaven and a new earth. "There, with the whole creation, freed from the corruption of sin and death, may we glorify you through Christ our Lord." (EP IV)
SUNDAY MISSAL
COPIES OF 2021-22 SUNDAY MISSAL are now available in the parish office.  The suggested donation for each is $10.00 to cover cost of shipping and handling.  Getting a copy of Sunday Missal should help you in preparing for Sunday Liturgies.    

PRAYER FOR DISASTER RELIEF
Let us join in prayer for those affected by the flooding and mudslides in our province. That in their weakness they may know God's strength, and in their despair, find hope. 

Let us pray that God continue to reach out his hand to all those who fear that they are sinking beneath the waves, or feel as if they’re too weary to carry on through the heat of the day. May they receive that courage, resilience, and healing grace that can only come from Him.

Let us pray...
God of hope and mercy, we lift up to you all victims of natural disasters and those responding with assistance and aid. Protect all who are in any form of danger; provide practical help to those in need; strengthen the weary, console the grieving, heal the suffering; and bless those engaged in disaster relief efforts with safety and courage. Help all people of good will respond with compassion and generous hearts. Amen.
