Facebook masses and continued live streaming. On Sunday Father Jim will celebrate Mass at 8.45am at St Annes Westby and at 10.45am at Holy Family. Both masses will be streamed through Facebook and the link is below or search on Facebook. See Facebook link


Parishes can gather for Mass on Sundays and weekdays, Baptisms Weddings and funerals too can be celebrated in church albeit in simpler forms, fewer people and in compliance with regulations

We will have to observe social distancing, spaces in church will be limited, and some of our familiar rituals and ways of doing things in church will need to be different. There will be stewards at each church to direct what we need to do.

Stewards will need to take a register of parishioners attending in case of a COVID-19 notification.

We remain in a stage of transition and the dispensation from attending Sunday Mass still holds. It will take time to get back to normal practice. This particularly apples to anyone who is feeling unwell, shielding or caring for someone in a vulnerable group you are not under an obligation to come to Mass.

Participation in Divine worship and Liturgy is our privilege. It is ours not by right but by gift. These restrictions we experience are a consequence of us being citizens of a broader society, for whom we have a profound concern, and to whom we have a Divine MissionCOVID.
