MASSES GOING TO 100 PARISHIONERS. THANKS FOR ALL THE PRAYERS
The 4 square metre rule stops us from going to higher numbers
The fine print will be sorted on Monday between the DHHS and the Archdiocese and we will know any details shortly afterwards. Meanwhile the following instructions will need to be adhered to: ……
There will be NO bookings for Masses and 100 will be the limit.
The church will be open half an hour before Mass, and all Registrars and Ushers must be there when the church opens. All participants must be at the church at least 10 minutes prior to Mass starting.
Parishioners will need to be registered by name and contact phone number.
Sanitiser and Masks will be mandatory.
An usher will seat each person/family who must remain in that seat until receiving Eucharist. Then return to that seat after Communion.
In receiving Eucharist, please extend your arms as far as possible to allow for correct social distancing. Communion will only be in the hand.
We will need to clear the church immediately after Mass.
Each Mass will require the correct number of volunteers, if not Mass cannot go ahead. Please consider what role you can play in the celebration and phone the Parish Office with your offer.
Volunteers needed are:
Set-Up, Lector, Musician, Singer, Registrars x2, Minister of Communion, Ushers x 4-5, Cleaners x 4

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday
This Sunday 5th July, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday will be celebrated with a theme chosen to respond to the current challenges we face as a community – Together in the Spirit.
Please note: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday is usually celebrated during NAIDOC Week, however, due to COVID-19, NAIDOC Week has been postponed to November.

It was great to finally be able to celebrate a Mass on Sunday after many weeks. Fr John Papworth was our celebrant. Thanks to all who made it possible. The health regulations mean that it takes more volunteers for just 20 participants than we normally need any previous Sunday. And that’s without a collection…
Next weekend (7th-8th) we have the first of our two “VINNIES CHRISTMAS APPEAL” collections. If you can’t be at either weekend Masses, donate online by using the link below.
