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. are to be taken with you until further notice.

Morning Tea

Morning tea will be held in the foyer after Sunday Mass.

Music Volunteers

We are hoping for an Organist and several singers to come forward and exercise their talents for the greater glory of God. Sheet music and tuition support for volunteers available.

Please contact Phil on 0428 966 916 for more information.

RIP John Rencontre

We are saddened by the passing away of John Rencontre on Friday morning, on the 12th of June. John had a great love of the Latin Mass. Not only was he one of the founders of our Latin Mass here in Kelmscott, he was also an integral part of the Mass as one of the choir members. He was 85 years of age and has been and will continue to be missed. May he now find comfort and rest with God, and in the company of all the Saints, contemplate the Holy Trinity forever.
