Support Church Services
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.
Sign this petition now!
