It is wonderful for us to be back in our Church to worship together; welcome. Each person’s safety is our priority; we thank the very dedicated and efficient team of stewards for their wonderful work. Please let us continue to be guided by them – wear our masks, sanitize our hands, register track and trace form/scan, follow the arrows for smooth movements/keeping social distancing, etc. We cannot thank enough the various groups that help facilitate our opening our Church daily during these trying and strange times!

As the capacity of the Church is more than halved because of COVID safe distancing rules, we shall have extra Masses during the Christmas Eve and Christmas day. So please consider those extra Masses as you plan your Christmas. More so, the Octave Masses (after Christmas till 1st January) are Christmas Masses.  

While I feel uneasy to talk about this, may I really appeal to everyone to please help pick as many Christmas raffle tickets as possible for the Grand Draw; the proceeds go to help pay for our Insurance Cover for the Church, Presbytery and Church Hall. 13th December is printed on the ticket; may I appeal we move it by one week (second lockdown effect!) ie to 20th December.

COME LORD JESUS is what Advent is all about; may we prepare and be ready to welcome our Saviour specially this year’s Christmas. From the 15th to the 18th, we invite you to join the parish on-line for 2020 Advent Retreat – 7pm. We shall end the retreat on the 19th with Mass of Reconciliation at 10am. Opportunity for individual confessions after the Mass

Please pick a copy of My Day by Day Advent 2020 at the back of the Church.

Wishing all a fruitful Advent season and a Happy and Safe Christmas!
