We all anticipate the press conference from premiers, a conference where he would discuss the new measures for this new phase in the coronavirus crisis where we are going for a gradual reopening of economic and social activity. In fact, after more than 1 month of total closure and confinement, social distancing, sacrifices, and proven patience, the announcement of a progressive return to normalcy was expected from many.

The faith-based community, in particular, waited in silence, obediently, hoping that the Government would help places of worship with the possibility of restoring worship and other services, responsibly and gradually. But, this has not been the case.

In the decrees and regulations already approved, there is very little mention of this regard. In New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, drive-in religious services will be allowed, as long as people stay in their cars. 

That’s why we have launched this petition in support of the restoration of Sunday worship, services, and mass. We want to support our bishops and our pastors and the entire faith-based community in our right to profess and celebrate our faith. It is time to trust the faithful to protect themselves and others and not ban their worship or keep the churches shut!

Sign the petition to ask the government to let the people of faith reopen the churches and participate in Sunday worship. 

Phases of reopening prioritize, parks, stores, and libraries... but not the religious services!

Let our pastors feel our support! Sign the petition to ask the government to restore Sunday worship in churches.

Places of worship will know how to organize adequate instruments of social distancing within their facilities, and people of faith will be smart about protecting themselves and others.

Thank you very much for all you do to defend freedom of worship.

Petition to: Provincial Premiers

All of the signers of this petition have experienced, like everyone else, the separation from our loved ones... but also the separation from places of worship as part of the COVID shut down of our country.

Today, your government is considering and approving some measures to alleviate the restrictions imposed on the people by planning to reopen some economic and social activities. We respectfully ask you to also pay attention to the needs of the faith-based community and to consider their need to celebrate their Faith. In particular, we ask you to prioritize the protection of service attendees of weekly worship, mass, bible studies, wedding ceremonies, and funerals. 

Places of worship will know how to organize adequate instruments of social distancing within their facilities, and you should trust people of faith to be smart about protecting themselves and others. Please take a step forward to protect the right to believers to freely profess one's religious faith and practice its worship.
