Re-opening the Church for public Mass
I am pleased to announce that our church is now open for public Mass:
Wednesday at 11:30am,
Saturday at 12:30pm
Sunday at 10:30am
with limited numbers only.
Please note that under the new guideline the maximum capacity of our church for the Mass is 68 people only. This new guideline means we may have to turn people away once we reach the maximum capacity. Therefore, may I request you all to be considerate, patient and understanding when you come to the Church for Mass. If we have more volunteers, then we will be able to have additional Masses or Mass on weekdays. If anyone would like to be a volunteer or steward please contact the Parish Office via Phone or e-mail. The bishops note that the Sunday Obligation is still suspended under these conditions.
When you come to the church for Mass YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE MASK OR FACE COVERINGS. It is obligatory, except those with severe breathing difficulties and the under 5’s are not required to wear face coverings.
More information about re-opening the church for Mass is available this week’s Newsletter. God bless you all.
