MASS TIMES & PREPARATION:

 

Thank you to everyone in the forum for holding onto our faith in Jesus Christ and praying for God’s intervention in our lives as we go through the difficult times. Let us continue to pray for everyone.

 

The opening of our church for private prayer in the last 2 weeks has been very successful. We also have the approval to begin Mass from 4th July. We have marked the church & put the necessary safety precautions in place. Based on the 2 meters distance, Our church can take 24-30 persons per Mass. The Duration of Mass will be 30 minutes, No singing, No handshake & sign of peace. Homily 5 minutes, No bidding prayer, No waiting to chat after Mass, people are encouraged to go home immediately. Holy Communion will be received from the priest at the end of Mass, after the final blessing.

 

Trained Ushers will be present at the doors to direct people in & out of the church. The hall space will be available for people to wait for the next Mass in case you arrive late or meet the Mass that’s already full.

 

We will have Mass on Sunday at: 10.00am, 12.00pm & 5.30pm depending on the number of parishioners that will turn up.

Kindly come with face cover. Other information will be given as you arrive in the church.

 

Those who have medical conditions, the sick & housebound to remain at home & they will be prayed for at Mass. This is a gradual start so no hurry. We have faith & trust that Jesus our Saviour, the greatest healer & physician is with us, saving & protecting us against the pandemic. You’re welcome to Mass on Sunday!

 

Please if you have suggestions as to the time of Mass, questions or any other information here, let me know. Do pass on the message to others. Thank you and God bless us.
