Working Bee

It's that time of year to roll up our sleeve as a united community of faithful friends to show some love for Jesus. Let's get His church all clean and sparkling for His Birthday.

Coffee, tea and biscuits available at breaks. Saturday, 14 November from  8am-12pm.

Spreading the Love

November and December's Small Change Collection will be allocated to missionary work in India. No coin is too small, so please spread your love.

Book of Remembrance

November is the month in the Church where we especially pray for our loved ones who have died. Please enter in the Book of Remembrance, located in the foyer, the names of your loved ones for whom you wish us to pray during November.

If you want to have a Mass for your personal intentions please put it into a Mass Intention Envelope (also in the foyer) and hand it in to the Sacristy before Mass begins.

COVID-19 Compliance

There is a COVID-19 Compliance Plan in place. Some key points:

  • Mass numbers are only restricted by available social distancing rules/space;

  • Registration is no longer required;

  • Sanitation will probably be the 'new normal' and will continue to be available/practised;

  • The prohibition on sharing and re-use of books and papers will remain in force until further notice;

  • Mass Booklets and printed hymn sheets are for personal re-use only. Please bring them back with you each week. All other bulletins etc. take with you until further notice.

Disposal of Religious Items

Do you know how to properly dispose of religious items, if need be?

Items that are blessed must be treated with reverence. If they cannot be given away to others, then they must be buried, or burned and buried. Do this also for items you are unsure of, regarding blessing.

If the items have not been blessed, such as holy cards and images through the mail, then they are simply pictures that can be thrown away. More information can be found here.
