Dear Parish Council Presidents and Life Members: The health and safety of our members is the Diocesan Officers' first priority. We have been monitoring the outbreak of COVID -19 (cornavirus). Yesterday Alberta Health Services (AHS) made the announcement that gatherings of 250 people should be cancelled adding the following: "any event that has more than 50 attendees and expects international participants, or involves critical infrastructure staff, seniors or other high-risk populations should be cancelled." The officers, in consideration of this announcement, voted to postpone the Annual Convention to possibly July, to continue to monitor the situation and to take guidance and direction from AHS. This decision was not made lightly but rather in the best interest of our membership. We are letting you know of our decision and are working out ramifications of this decision. You will be advised in due course about refunds and all other details related to postponing. Check our website in the coming weeks for any announcements. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or your Parish Buddy.
