Masses Closed to Public and Parish Events Cancelled
Due to the directives from the Archdiocese regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all Masses at the Parish will be celebrated in private by our priests. The laity and deacons are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. Our Parish Masses will be live-streamed each day around 08h30 via Facebook (link below). A list of other live-streamed Masses from across the Archdiocese is also linked below. Another way to keep the Sabbath is to perform a Spiritual Communion (the guide is also linked below).
Additionally, all events and meetings of a non-essential nature are to be cancelled, while devotions are to be done in private (Rosary, Stations of the Cross, etc).
