The Celebration Of Holy Mass And All Parish Activities Are Back To Normal. 😊 Please Note: Catholics have the obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday. This is for our spiritual growth and the grace we receive from Holy Communion. Our live stream of Sunday Mass and weekday Mass will continue for those who are unable to attend e.g. people who are infirm and housebound.
- The wearing of masks and social distancing is no longer compulsory in our churches. However, we do need to be prudent and all parishioners who are at risk of illness and want to prevent illness, are encouraged to continue wearing masks in the church. I, personally, will continue to wear a mask when I distribute Holy Communion.
- Holy Communion may be received on the hand or on the tongue. For the time being, we will not be having Communion under both kinds.
- We have grown into the habit of bowing or gesturing during the Sign of Peace. We can shake hands or clasp hands together with a bow to indicate peace – what ever we are comfortable with.
- For the collection, we will continue to have the boxes at the entrance of the church. But we have the possibility now of returning to passing around our collection bags during the Offertory. I will consult our PPC before making a decision concerning the collection during Mass. I would like to take this moment to thank all who so generously continued to contribute to our parish by EFT during the lockdown. It was your generosity which enabled us to develop our online ministry and survive the pandemic. Thank you so very much.
- We will continue to have sanitizers at the doors of the church.
- I would also encourage all to bless themselves with Holy Water when entering and leaving the church.

VOCATION REFLECTION: It’s a simple concept: love God with you whole being and put that love into practice. How is God calling you to love? Have you considered the way of loving called priesthood or religious life (Lk. 10:25-37)Prayer for South Africa
we praise you for all who work for your kingdom to come.
We thank you for seeing South Africa
through many milestones in the past.
We are sorry for failing the vision of justice, peace and mercy.
Send your Holy Spirit to us in our present need,
as politically motivated violence and looting scar our country.
Be with those who govern us.
May they work selflessly and diligently
so that our country may flourish in truth and in justice’
in love and in freedom.
Grant us a listening heart
and the courage to act justly and peacefully,
to love tenderly and walk humbly with You our God.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
