Parish News & Events:
COVID-19: Keeping the Faith
While churches remain closed, Bishop Vincent has given dispensation for the Faithful to participate in Mass via live-streaming. An act of Spiritual Communion fulfills the Sunday obligation at this time. In addition, those who feel at risk may continue to avoid public gatherings when church doors reopen, by participating online where possible.
To participate in a live-streamed Mass, visit our YouTube channel here.
COVID-19: Church Re-openingIn keeping with government legislation, our church may only open for public worship if strict safety guidelines are adhered to. These include limiting numbers, sanitising, taking register at the door and assisting parishioners to their seats. While we await Bishop Zungu’s decision on when to reopen, we are organising teams of volunteers – please contact the parish office urgently if you are able to assist.
