Important Parish Announcements – Changes brought about in response to COVID-19
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
We pray that you are well.
In light of the recent development of COVID 19 cases and based on the directives received from our Premier, restrictions have been re-instated by the NSW Department of Health. The below applies to places of worship:
- Wearing of a mask is compulsory
- 4 square metre per person rule is to be observed
- Singing is prohibited
What does this means for us?
It is compulsory for each individual attending mass to wear a mask. Compliance will start from Monday, 4 January 2021 with $200 on the spot fines for individuals for non-compliance. Children under 12 are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable.
We have also had to reduce the maximum number of worshipers back to 91 for all masses.
Each individual attending mass will also need to be registered using the link in the Parish Resources section below, including babies and small children. Registration for more than one mass is not allowed. Unregistered people will not be allowed in the Church. There will be no registration available on arrival.
Should there be any further changes to the restrictions, we will do our best to act swiftly and keep you informed. Please refer to our website and our Facebook page (Mary Immaculate Parish Eagle Vale).
God Bless you always!
Fr. Slawek, Fr. Casmir and the Parish Leadership Team.
