MASSES FOR THE LORD’S DAY
SATURDAY 5.30 P.M. SUNDAY 8 A.M. 10 A.M. 5.30 P.M.
The good news is now we are permitted to have 100 people, based on the 4 square metre rule for each & the size of our building.
Following instructions from N.S.W Health The congregation needs to wear masks indoors, unless exempt. Children aged 12 and under, are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable.
Please ensure upon entering the Church, if you have the Service NSW QR app, that you scan the QR Code which is registered with Service NSW. You must also write our name and contact details in the register.
Also we can permit couples and family members to be together at Mass then there needs to be 1.5 metres space to the next person who is not a member of the family, provided we have no more than 100 people inside the Church We will have chairs in the foyer appropriately spaced. There will also be some chairs in the Church’s covered extension.
Before Mass all are asked to make sure that their details are recorded on the pages in the foyer, to use the sanitizer, and to take a bulletin. We will have ushers to guide people to fill up the places from the front so that we maximise the number of people inside the Church. Other than couples and family groups, please be where there is a white sticker on the pew back in front of you. Sadly, there must be no handshakes, no offertory procession, no Communion from the chalice or on the tongue. We must keep social distance, even coming to Communion. Please do not be at Mass if you are unwell. If you missed the chance to come to weekend Mass in the Church and are reading this bulletin at home, please help to bring family together for prayer.
Our Church building now is permitted to open at times for religious gatherings.
This has very strict conditions so as to take precautions to protect the health of all.
