About Our Parish
New resources available from the Centre for Liturgy website
STEWARDSHIP: Theology of Stewardship – Giving Thanks in the Good Times … He becomes so much a part of the action that it is no longer his ancestors whom God was saving with his mighty outstretched arm, but the Hebrew farmer as well. It is that story which shapes his images and his basic orientation toward life.
SUPPORT OUR CHURCH REPAIR WORKS: Parishioners are encouraged to think about possible ways of supporting our Parish. If you come to our church regularly or occasionally, including volunteers and visitors, please fill in the New Parishioner Registration Form. Your presence is very important to our parish. 1. Consider joining in Planned Giving Programme. 2. If you are already in the program, please contribute regularly. 3. Donation of any amount is welcome to support our Church.
Dear Parishioners … COVID 19 is now in the Phase 4 Road to Recovery. Now the churches are allowed to be opened for private prayers, Eucharistic Adoration and Masses and sacraments except Confirmation with capacity limits determined by the 2 square meters per person rule. During the weekend there will be three Masses: Saturday 6pm, Sunday 7.30am and 9am. Parishioners are encouraged to take part in the weekend Masses. There will be no Livestream Mass at 10am. If you are unable to attend Mass, or if the church is filled with full capacity of people, you are dispensed from Sunday Obligation. You can view other Livestream Masses on TV or on YouTube. You don’t need to sign in your name and phone number per Government Directives. No Holy Water will be provided. Bulletins should not be reused. Parishioners must either take them home or dispose of them. Hymnals or shared copies of texts are not to be used. Sign of peace is to be given without physical contact. Offertory processions and gospel processions are to be omitted. No Precious Blood is allowed. Receiving Holy Communion on the tongue must be refrained which is out of concern for the health of others. No usual collections will be taken but there will be two baskets in the Church foyer for First and Second Collections. Please be generous with your contribution. Our parish needs your support. Thank you to those who have been dropping envelopes and for new members to our Planned Giving. We still encourage you to apply for Direct Debit Contributions…
BLESSED WATER: The Holy Water of Our Lady of Mt Carmel blessed during weekend Mass will be placed near Our Lady’s statue in confessional side. Parishioners are welcome to take one or two bottles of Holy Water. You are welcome to place a donation for the bottles in the candle donation.
CONDOLENCES and PRAYERS to MARJORIE SHERIDAN’s FAMILY: Marjorie’s Family wish to thank Parishioners for their prayers and support over the years. Due to the COVID-19 situation, you were not able to come to her Funeral Mass on Saturday 25-7-20 as our family has many members and they needed to participate. We are sure you understand the situation. Please continue to pray for our family members.
