Dear Parishioners,

It feels a bit quiet on the road due to the closure of the schools for annual break. Things are going slow with break ups in workplaces and weather is warming up. Let us not forget that we are on the last week of advent season; preparing and waiting for the Lord to arrive. Let us welcome everyone who will be joining us for Christmas Masses. For those of our parishioners going to celebrate with family and friends outside our parish, please stay safe. Wishing the Merry Christmas.
Office closure on 23rd – 29th of December. If you need anything from the office, please contact us as early as possible.
I am taking a break from 3rd to 7th. On these days there be no Mass. On 7th there will be evening Mass at 7pm.
Working bee on 18th Saturday 9:30 – 11-30
Christmas Mass times
Please note the change: 8:30 morning Mass on Christmas day will be for all regardless of vaccination status.
Christmas Masses might go longer than usual. Just be prepared.
Break Open the Word
The new Sunday readings book is ready to collect. For our weekend readers on the roster, it’s for a donation. For other parishioners it is on sale for $20 from the Piety stall. It’s a wonderful resource for preparation before the Mass.
Religious Discrimination Bill
Please find archbishop’s letter regarding the Religious Discrimination Bill 2021 on our website (under latest news) and printed copies at the foyer.
Reading Roster for 2022
Please collect your reading roster sheet for 2022 from the Priest sacristy.
The new regulations
Face Coverings– Face coverings no longer need to be worn at weddings, funerals, or worship. Face coverings continue to be required indoors in limited high-risk settings including retail, health care and aged care. It is recommended that face coverings be worn if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19.
Vaccinations– There will not be any vaccination requirements nor any requirement for organisers to check vaccination status at Places of Worship for Weddings, Funerals, and general Worship.
Workers at Places of Worship (staff and volunteers) must still be fully vaccinated.
Please note that other activities outside of worship, particularly those activities that involve hospitality, will require full vaccination for participation and will entail QR code check-ins and COVID Marshals. This will apply to varying activities held within the parish-context.
QR code check-in– Remember to check in everywhere every time using the Service Victoria app.
Please follow all the regulations and

stay safe, God bless. Rev Fr. Martin Jeramias
