31st May 2020 – Pentecost Sunday (Year A)

31/5/2020

PARISH UPDATE:

 We will be offering two Masses next weekend—Saturday 6th June at 6.00pm and Sunday 7th June at 10.00am.

Due to government authority restrictions, each Mass can only have a maximum of 20 parishioners, thus bookings for the Mass are required.  You may book by phone for two people only per family on 9401 6398 to the office after 9.00am on Tuesday morning.  Please leave your name and phone number and which Mass you wish to attend, I will then confirm your place by return call after 1.00pm.  I will also take names on a waiting list if you are not within the first 20 to call through.  It is possible that we may be able to also stream the Mass but this is still to be confirmed.  At all times, social distancing must be adhered to inside and outside the church and surrounding areas.   If there are changes to government restrictions, updates will be on our website. 

We recognise that this may be a difficult time for all our parishioners who cannot share in sacramental Communion.  We remind everyone at home that they may join prayerfully in spiritual Communion and watching online masses, particularly for those in the high risk categories of our elderly and people who have compromised immune systems or living with chronic conditions.  We will publicise future Mass times as soon as we can.

If you wish to receive our newsletter via email please let us know at stannesparish@gmail.com.

 


WHEN YOU CANNOT COME TO MASS

Despite our current limitations, we can still participate in the celebration of Mass online thanks to modern technology. Many dioceses around the world provide online streaming of Masses, including our own Archdiocese of Melbourne. Below are some links to online Masses.  We also encourage you to think about how you might help those homebound and less tech-savvy to be able to access Mass online during this time.

Take the missal or weekly bulletin and read the Scriptures provided in the Liturgy of the Word for the day. Reflect silently on the readings. You may also choose to offer intercession in the Prayer of the Faithful. Read the Rite of Communion and then use this prayer or some other appropriate words to welcome Jesus Christ spiritually.
