STEWARDSHIP: Theology of Stewardship – Giving Thanks in the Bad Times … What happened when their freedom was threatened by foreign invasion or by despotic kings in Israel and Judah?
COVID-19 PHASE 4 IS STILL IN PLACE: As you would be aware, the Western Australian Government has announced a further deferral to the commencement of Phase 5 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap. Based on the latest health advice, Phase 4 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap has been extended until Friday 23 October 2020. The new tentative start date for Phase 5 will now be Saturday 24 October. A final decision on whether Phase 5 can proceed on this date, or if it can be brought forward, will be decided by the Western Australian Government in October. Phase 5 would see remaining restrictions removed, except Western Australia’s hard border and access to remote Aboriginal communities. Phase 5 would also see the removal of Western Australia’s 2 square metre rule and the 50 per cent capacity for our major venues. 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. The Archdiocese has given permission to go ahead with Confirmation. The Confirmation Ceremony will take place on Friday 16 October 2020 at 6pm at OLMC Hilton. Altar Servers and Acolytes are now free to hold the Liturgy Prayers for the Celebrants. Altar Servers welcome back to the Ministry. 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: ✨Keep the social distancing. ✨Use sanitizer when entering the church. ✨Wash your hands often if necessary. ✨If you are unwell, stay home. ✨If you feel coughing, sneezing due to cold weather, it is ok to wear a mask. 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.
