Parish Update - May 28 2020

Dear Parishioners

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday, Masses –restricted to 100 people – are permitted to resume from this Friday at noon.
The Bishops have advised that it is up to each parish to decide what is manageable and safe for their community, including whether any particular weekday or Sunday Mass resumes.

The guidelines for the reception of Holy Communion and health practices during a pandemic remain in place. Given that our parish Mass count on any weekend is approximately 1000, the current restrictions of numbers mean that not all parishioners will be able to attend Mass.

Others will choose not to attend due to health reasons, concerns or fears. For these reasons, the Bishops have advised that the dispensation from attendance at Sunday Mass continues. Live-streamed Masses, in conjunction with the Little Churches, will continue to be offered for these people.

The Leadership Formation Team of our Parish will be offering the following Eucharistic Celebrations for this Sunday, Pentecost 31 May.

1. The Little Churches Live stream Mass will take place at 0930. There is now the capacity for the number of Little Churches to grow given that we can allow more than 10 Little Church representatives to attend the Mass in person.

2. There will be a Mass celebrated at SS Peter & Paul's Church on Sunday 31 May at 11am. In accordance with the Covid-19 Restrictions this will be for a limited number of parishioners. In choosing who will be able to attend, priority will given to those parishioners who do not have access to the internet and who are not able to be part of a Little Church.

If you wish to be considered for a place at the public Parish Mass please ring 04 478 7137.
