As the restrictions are eased in Metro Melbourne, it’s my great joy to welcome our parishioners back to the church in limited numbers. We have been live-streaming our Sunday Mass since March 2020. Our Parish team has been very supportive and taken much effort with regard to live-streaming of the Masses and online Zoom reflection evenings. We all loved to come back to the church to celebrate our sacraments in person. However, a second wave of Covid-19 in Victoria made it impossible to do so till last week. It has been a difficult and challenging year for all of us. Even though we can celebrate Mass online through our parish YouTube channel, there is nothing like being together physically around the table of the Lord.
I assure you that you are in my humble prayers. We value our faith greatly and take every opportunity to practice and grow in it is vital to our Christian life.
As per the current regulations, we can have only 20 parishioners attending the Mass during weekdays and weekends. Please book online to attend these masses through our parish website. We shall let you know as soon as restrictions are eased further and therefore more people can attend.
I request for your kind consideration and understanding. This will enable us to welcome you back to our church safely. The church will be cleaned and sanitised before and after mass. Your safety is predominant.
Thank you very much God bless you all!
