COLLECTION OF CONFIRMATION PHOTOS 2021
Whilst photos are usually distributed approx. 6 weeks after the last mass, due to the lock-down and government COVID restrictions, there has been a delay with the printing process as the professional lab that I use is not considered an “essential service”.
They too are abiding by Government restrictions.
Unfortunately, this means a delay in viewing and receiving your photos this year.
As soon as the lab re-opens and restrictions allow us to distribute the photos at the church, you will be contacted.
Apologies once again and Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Please stay safe
BAPTISMS owing to the current restrictions Baptisms aren’t permitted to be celebrated.
Once restrictions are eased, please ring the Parish Office 9825 8154 to arrange the Christening. Our priest will visit the family at home to obtain details for the Baptism Certificate and let the family know the procedures.
