    Cleaning Materials for the Church

    • Dear Parishioners, as you know the church is being cleaned every day, that means we use a lot of cleaning materials, such as, antibacterial liquid for the floor, antibacterial spray for the benches, and Hand sanitizer. If you would like to donate those materials, we would very much appreciate it. You can bring it to the Sacristy before or after Mass.

    Changing the Time Schedule for Masses

    •  We have combined Sunday 9:30am and 11:00am Masses together to a new Mass time at 10:30am. So that we have enough time to clean the church after 10:30am Mass. Please be aware, there will be only two Masses, one is at 10:30am, another one is at 5:15pm.

    • Please also notice, the Church will close for cleaning after 10:30am Mass on Sunday between 12:00pm and 2:00pm. It will open again at 2:00pm.

    •  We also cancelled 12:15pm Mass Saturday. That means, we will have only the Vigil Mass at 6:15pm Saturday. But the church will remain open if you would like to come to light a candle and pray.

    We Need Help

    • We need a volunteer in administrative and secretarial help in the parish office for 2 or 3 mornings or afternoons a week.  If you can help or if you know anyone who can help, please let us know.

    Supporting the Parish

    • Due to COVID-19 lockdown that affects our parish finance, we need your help to run our beautiful Parish. We now encourage our parishioners, if you use online banking and are able to set up direct debit or standing order which would be a big support for the Church, below is our Parish Bank Account details:

             Account Number: 66286573

    • There will be no sharing of the collection Bags during the Sunday Masses due to the COVID-19. Therefore, the Parish prepared two Boxes at the back of the Church. Please put your Sunday offering into the Boxes.

    Guidelines you need to follow when coming to the Church

    • Our Parish has adopted the 1metre plus in order to maximize the capacity of our Church. This means that everyone in the Church must wear face mask.

    • Benches are marked for Social Distancing, please do observe these markings, it is advised that families can sit together. We have marked a few Benches for families.

    • Everyone must sanitizer their hands when entering and exiting the church. If you wear gloves, then you still need to apply the hand gel to your gloves.

    • Communion must be given silently in the hands only. And people must stand to receive it with arms at full stretch so that there is a good distance between the priest and people.

    • Other Parish facilities will not be opened at this stage, such as hall, and other activities.

    Lighting Candle

    • There will be no gas lighters  provided by the Church due to the risk of transmitting the Covid-19. However, the Church will provide a lighted candle in Our Lady's Chapel and The Scared Heart Chapel from which you can light a candle. 

    • If you like, you could bring your own lighter. 

    • Please be careful when you light a candle in order to prevent an accident which may cause a fire. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Thanks for your Cooperation.
