UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS

  • ONLY 30 PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED AT EACH DIVINE LITURGY DUE TO CURRENT PROVINCIAL REGULATIONS.
  • Sunday Liturgies are at the following times:
    • Saturday 5:00 p.m.,
    • Sunday 9:00 a.m. (Ukrainian) &
    • Sunday 11:00 a.m.
  • Those wishing to attend Divine Liturgy on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings must pre-register with the parish office.   Pre-registration is also required for major feast days (like the Annunciation – March 25), Presanctified Liturgies on Wednesday and Friday evenings in Lent, and Saturdays for the deceased (Sorokousty).  No walk-ins are allowed.  To make a reservation, please contact the parish office either by email (sspp@sasktel.net) by Friday at 4:00pm or by phone (306-343-6516during office hours.
    • If you have registered for a Sunday Liturgy and find that you will not be able to attend please let the parish office know so that someone else will be able to attend.  Thank you for your consideration and cooperation.   
  • Liturgies are at 8:00am from Monday to Friday. (In Lent, weekday Liturgies will only be on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.) On major feast days, we have Liturgies at 9:00am and 7:00pm. Saturday morning Divine Liturgy is at 9:00am. On civic holidays, Divine Liturgy is at 9:00am. In Lent, Presanctified Liturgies are at 7:00pm on Wednesday and Friday.

  • UPDATED SCHEDULE FOR CONFESSIONS: Confessions are in the church hall and will follow COVID protocols and restrictions.  Confessions take place only until there is no one in line upstairs and are scheduled as follows:
    • Saturday 5:00pm – Confessions begin at the start of Liturgy
    • Sunday 9:00am – Confessions begin at START OF THE LITURGY, and
    • Sunday 11:00am – Confessions begin AFTER THE HOMILY.

  • The church only opens 15 minutes before the start of Liturgy. Now that we have colder temperatures, an orange pylon is placed outside one of the doors to let everyone know when the door is open. At a Liturgy without preregistration, please sign in with the usher at the door when you get to church. This is necessary in case contact tracing is required.
  • MASKS – Only children under the age of 2 are NOT required to wear a mask. All other children and all adults are required to wear a mask during the entire service. Masks will not be provided so it is necessary to bring your own.  Please put your mask on in your car or outside. If you are not able to wear a mask then we ask that you do not attend Liturgy.
  • Liturgy books are available at the back of the church to borrow and take home or return after.
  • Please sit only at the places with a cross made out of tape on the pew backrest. Sit together with members of your own household only.
  • Please do not move around the church. Remain at your seat for the entire service except if you have to use the washroom. Please enter and exit the pew from the same aisle (i.e., do not walk across the empty pews).
  • Eucharist is given in the hand with a dry host only. Eucharist will be given at the end of Liturgy. Please practice physical distancing in the communion line.
  • At the end of Liturgy, please lower the kneeler, because this helps to indicate where sanitization is required after the Liturgy.
  • Those who are medically vulnerable and at high risk should consider not attending Divine Liturgy at this time.  Liturgies on Sundays and major feast days will continue to be posted on YouTube. The obligation to attend Liturgy on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation is still dispensed by Bishop Bryan.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
