(Last updated 5 May 2021)
In light of the tightened safety measures announced by the authorities on 4th May 2021, and to comply with the lower 100 person capacity guidelines for public worship services
All Masses booked on weekends and weekdays (8 May – 31 May) would be canceled.
Re-booking of these masses begins tomorrow morning, 6 May 2021 @ 9am.
Trace Together App or Token must be used in the Church, beginning 17 May 2021, and made compulsory by June 1.
If the Token has run out of battery, they must be renewed before June 1, as all those without a working Token or TT app will be denied entry to the Church, and strictly implemented.
SAFETY is the key focus at this time, given the possibility of us lapsing into another major outbreak and circuit breaker. Let’s do our part to protect our church, parishioners, volunteers, staff, and priests who work hard to enable us to worship together.

2 May 2021
The Gospel and second reading for this Fifth Sunday of Easter emphasize the need for us to remain in Christ, and he in us. This shared life finds expression in the image of the one vine and many branches. We become living branches of the vine, members of the Body of Christ through baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation, sacraments of sharing God’s own life. The First Letter of John describes the fruit of this vine as active love of neighbor: “And his commandment is this: we should believe . . . and love one another” (1 John 3:23).
Our first reading from Acts shows us an example of someone who shares in Christ’s life in the person of Saint Paul; Paul’s fearless witness, even at the risk of his life, is proof to everyone that the risen Lord’s Spirit truly fills him with life and is bearing fruit in him.
