WA GOVERNMENT UPDATE: Places of Worship are now exempt from the two square metre rule and are able to operate at a 60 percent capacity. Following the latest WA public health advice, places of worship are now exempt from the two square metre rule. They can operate at 60 per cent capacity if this is a larger number than what was allowed under the two square metre rule. This change comes into effect immediately. From Saturday, 5 December 2020, places of worship will be required to maintain a contact register, in electronic or written form. Maintaining a contact register will assist the WA Health Department with COVID-19 contact tracing, which is one of the most effective measures in controlling the spread of COVID-19 if an outbreak occurred. A free, simple, and secure contact register app, SafeWA, has been developed by the WA Government to make it easy for businesses and venues to check in patrons. It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. A written contact register must also be available for people who choose not to use the SafeWA app to register attendance. For more information: • See the Places of worship to operate at a greater capacity under health advice media statement. • Visit COVID-19 coronavirus: Contact registers. The Archbishop’s directive of Friday 27 November 2020 will be updated and re-issued prior to Saturday 5 December 2020 to reflect these updates. Fr Paul Raj.
REVISION OF ARCHDIOCESAN DIRECTIVES: On 24 June 2020, Archbishop Costelloe SDB issued directives for Churches and Chapel within the Archdiocese of Perth, which reflected the introduction of Phase 4 of the Western Australian government’s COVID 19 roadmap. These directives are available on the Archdiocese of Perth’s website. In light of the Western Australian government’s extension of Phase 4, the Archdiocese is currently reviewing current health advice with the view to revising and reissuing the Archdiocesan guidelines as soon as is practicable. I thank you for your patience and understanding as the Archdiocese undertakes this process and the relevant due diligence required in the engagement of expert advice. In our Community: ✨Use sanitiser when entering the church. ✨Wash your hands often if necessary. ✨If you are unwell, stay home. ✨If you feel coughing, sneezing due to change of weather, it is ok to wear a mask. ✨ Hands-free holy water will be available soon. Support your church and priests. Thank you to all who have been supporting our Parish and priests financially. We need your continuous support to get back to normal financially. Please consider joining in our planned giving programme. Fr Paul Raj.
THE YEAR OF ST JOSEPH – PRAYER TO ST JOSEPH FOR OUR FAMILY: Gracious St Joseph, protect my family and all other families from danger, as you did protect the baby Jesus and His mother from the wrath of king Herod… Pray for us, that we respect, love and care for each other in our family as you were with Mary and Jesus.

HOLY MASS and HEALING. TOUCH OF HEAVEN – Alan Ames Ministry: St Mary’s Cathedral, Victoria Square, Perth. Tuesday 16th February, 6:30pm. Mass – Talk- Healing. Alan Ames has been speaking and praying for healing around the world since 1994. He has spoken in more than 40 countries. His books are available in 18 languages. In 2004 and again in sites in Christendom; the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth and St Catherine’s, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Alan shares his unique conversion experiences that caused a dramatic change in his life from a violent alcoholic to a man of Sacraments and prayer. Alan has the permission and support of Archbishop T Costelloe, SDB of Perth… Susanne from Germany – I wore a hearing aid because of serious problems. I went to a healing service by Alan Ames and now I do not need a hearing aid anymore. I had extensive test done which confirmed I can now hear all tones. Also, that evening a woman close by me in the church was crying, she was in so much pain, but when she came back after being prayed over she told her husband she did not have any more pain… Brother Dennis from Australia – I was told by my doctor I had cancer spreading from my bladder to my pancreas. I went to see Alan at a healing service and he prayed for me. On the way walking back to my car my breathing became very heavy, it lasted for up to 24 hours and felt as if it was going right down into the area where the cancer was and I felt a sense of peace. I visited my doctor 2 weeks later and he said, “Good news, no sign of the cancer.” I thanked the doctor and he said, “Not me, divine intervention has occurred here.”… For enquires please contact George on 9275 6608.
