Bishops’ Letter to the Faithful – Nov. 30, 2020

We are pleased to share with you the letter of the Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories pertaining to vaccines. It addresses the question, “Is it OK for a Catholic to be vaccinated against COVID-19?” The process of the letter’s development brought out a range of other questions pertaining to this topic. The Bishops decided to address only one: moral permissibility, applying ecclesial teaching on cooperation with evil. Other questions may be addressed in the future if and as necessary. Please open this link to read the letter.

In addition, you may wish to watch the video by Fr. Casey Cole summarizing the Church’s moral teaching on cooperation:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeScAapnPGE.

Thank you,
