Restrictions eased!
Chapel doors now open for ‘limited’ Services.

We were blessed to be able to gradually re-open our Chapel for Sunday Reading services, effective July 18, 2021; strictly following the guidelines set by the Provincial Health Office. Our priority continues to focus on offering a safe and welcoming place for devotees to meet, and therefore, the following protocols are in place:

* Electronic registration prior to attending is mandatory. Only those registered, may enter the Chapel.

* All devotees to maintain 2 metres distance where possible. Seating is limited to 20 in the Chapel, with an additional 3 seats in the hallway. Couples and family members may sit together and the Usher will reorganize seating as required.

* Please stay home if you have any cold-related symptoms [cough, runny nose, fever], have travelled outside the city in the last 14 days, or have close contact with anyone with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19.

* Registered devotees who feel unwell, are encouraged to cancel their registration as soon as possible, so as to make space available for others. Please e-mail: contact@vancouvermeditationgroup.org

* A devotee may register more than one companion.

* Face masks are once again, mandatory.
