Project Advance 教區擴展計劃(2021)



Dear Reverend Fathers, Deacons and parish staff,

Yesterday we received greater clarity from the Provincial Health Office regarding vaccination requirements for non-worship meetings, programs and events at parishes. The information below is what we can tell you as of today. In simplest terms, masks are required for all indoor events, meetings and programs (Archdiocesan requirement) and proof of vaccination is generally not.

It's important to note that the overall aim of the vaccination program is the encouragement of greater vaccination participation and is much less a measure for direct health protection.

All worship services (and receptions following services - like the parish hall or basement) are exempt from the requirement for proof of vaccination. In addition, any public meetings held in faith-based settings that have a worship component (such as youth groups and parish meetings, etc), are also exempt from the proof of vaccination requirement. However, a separate organized event such as a reception, or other event that does not have a worship component, does require attendees to provide proof of vaccination if it has more than 50 people attending.

As an example, the upcoming Upper Room event has no vaccine requirement for any attendees or staff since it has a worship component (prayer, worship music, Mass, etc). Anyone can register for the Upper Room here.

Here are some specifics:

Proof of Vaccination

  • There is NO requirement for proof of vaccination for any of the following: Any indoor organized events with less than 50 people (this will likely suffice for 90% of events at parishes)
  • PREP
  • RCIA
  • Pastoral Council Meetings
  • CWL and KofC meetings
  • Alpha and Discovery programs
  • Faith Studies programs
  • Prayer groups
  • Youth Groups and activities
  • Choir practice
  • Indoor youth recreational sport for people 19 years or younger
  • Various meetings with less than 50 people
  • There IS a requirement for proof of vaccination for the following:
  • Social gathering events with 50 or more people. For example: wedding receptions or funeral receptions (that are not immediately following the funeral) or organized parties and social events.
  • Mask Wearing

    Masks are required for ALL indoor events at parish facilities, including Mass, meetings, PREP, youth events, etc, except for:

  • People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one
  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own
  • Children under the age of 12
  • People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person's hearing impairment

    親愛的神父們、執事們,及堂區職工們:

    對於各堂區舉辦非崇敬聚會、活動及課程,我們昨天收到省府衛生官員發出有關「接種疫苗」較清晰的指引。迄今,我們可以簡單綜合來說:所有室內的活動,均必須戴上口罩,而不需要出示「接種疫苗證明」。

    政府一切接種疫苗措施,旨在增加市民接受疫苗的注射率,而不是著眼於百份百健康的保障。

    所有崇敬或宗教聚會(包括聚會後在堂區禮堂或地庫的交流聚會),參加者都不需要出示「接種疫苗證明」。至於參加公開的信仰聚會,且帶有崇敬成分(如青少年小組、堂區會議等),也毋須出示「接種疫苗證明」。不過,與崇敬或宗教無關而又超過五十人的個別組織聚會,參加者進場時,必須先出示「接種疫苗證明」。

    例如教區即將舉行的「晚餐廳Upper Room」 活動,因為有祈禱、聖樂、彌撒等敬主原素,任何人都可以登記參加,參加者只需戴上口罩,毋須事前注射疫苗。

    以下列舉一些毋須出示「接種疫苗證明」的活動:

  • 任何少於五十人參加的室內聚會(似乎涵蓋了90%的堂區活動)
  • 童道理班 (PREP)
  • 成人慕道班(RCIA)
  • 堂區議會(Pastoral Council)會議
  • 婦女會(CWL)會議 及 哥倫布武士會(K of C)會議
  • 探始尋真活動 (Alpha & Discovery Program)
  • 信仰研討活動 (Faith Studies Programs)
  • 祈禱小組 (Prayer Groups)
  • 青年小組(Youth Groups)及活動
  • 聖詠團 (Choir) 練習
  • 十九歲或以下青少年室內文娛運動 (Indoor youth recreational sport for people 19 years or younger)
  • 任何少於五十人參加的室內聚會
  • 以下是必須出示「接種疫苗證明」的活動:
  • 參加人數五十或以上的社交活動。例如:婚禮或葬禮後在另外時段或地點,舉行的宴會和聚會。(婚禮或殯儀後即時及即場舉行的接待則不在此限。)

  • 所有堂區室內的活動必須戴上口罩;包括彌撒、會議、兒童道理班、青少年活動等;但以下人士除外:
  • 在健康、身體、認知或精神方面有障礙的人士。
  • 不能自己戴上或除下口罩的人士。
  • 十二歲以下的小童。
  • 與聽覺有障礙的人交談時需要除下口罩的人士。
