Cantors to return to Mass
Friday, September 18, 2020

The voice of a cantor is now permitted at Catholic masses in the Edmonton Archdiocese, as parishes are given new guidelines following the easing of provincial COVID-19 guidelines on singing and music.

While provincial guidelines allow a choir performance with COVID restrictions, full congregation singing is not recommended at this time. In the Archdiocese, the guidelines say that only a cantor is permitted at this time. and the COVID-19 risk must be managed with physical distancing and other health precautions.

These guidelines were sent by Edmonton Archbishop Richard Smith to priests on Sept. 17.
