Scent–Free Worship Environment

Categories: News and Announcements

In Canada today, more than one in four individuals suffers from respiratory disease. Medical evidence clearly shows that scented products are harmful to the health of sensitive individuals. In sufficient concentrations, scented products may be harmful to those with allergies, environmental sensitivity or chronic heart or lung disease.

Our Lady Queen of the World is dedicated to providing a healthy and comfortable worship environment for our parishioners. In considering the health needs and concerns of those sensitive and non-sensitive parishioners alike and to provide a healthy worship environment, this policy will take effect immediately. We can achieve this goal only through ongoing efforts to protect sensitive individuals and to help parishioners adjust to having a scent-free worship environment.
