RECOMMENCING PARISH MASSES
We have received the latest directives relevant to Phase Three of the WA COVID-19 Roadmap which were announced by the Premier on Friday, 29 May 2020, which will come into effect on Saturday, 6 June 2020.
We will be recommencing Masses in our parish according to the government restrictions of 100 people per gathering. To assist the community with this, Masses will be available during the week and on the weekend. The faithful continue to be dispensed of their obligation to attend Sunday Mass.

- Tuesday – 5.30pm

(The current government restrictions of no more than 100 people are to be followed at all times during Adoration).

The Parish is required to ensure that the name and contact details of every person who enters a church for any reason is recorded as per government directives. Churches must retain these records.

New Mass time for Wednesday will be at 9.00am
Having reviewed the Mass time, currently at 7.00am on Wednesday morning and consulted with the Parish Pastoral Council, I have carefully considered feedback and revised the new Mass time to accommodate as many parishioners as possible. This will also provide consistency with most other morning Masses, enable consistency during Public Holidays, and facilitate more participation from parents and students from schools. Therefore, please be advised that as from Wednesday 17th June 2020, new Mass time will be at 9.00am followed by Adoration and conclude with Benediction at 11.00am. Longer duration of Adoration can be extended should the need arises.
We truly appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Thank you and God bless!
Fr. Phong Nguyen
