Current Arrangements for attending Mass at St Mary's

 

 

 We will be holding a preparation program for the Sacraments of Reconciliation / Eucharist in 2020 but do not have exact dates yet. Enrolment forms can be found by clicking on Application Forms at left

 

 

Due to 4 sqm physical distancing rules only 31 people can occupy the church at any one time.  The Hall can accommodate 20.  So a total of 51 people can attend Mass on any one day (including the priest).

We are requesting, therefore, that those who can attend the 9.00 am Mass on Wednesday make that day their weekly day of worship for the time being.  This will allow those who are unable to come on Wednesday to attend Mass on Sunday.

We are implementing the following procedures:-

·         We are asking those who have underlying health conditions or are over 70 years of age to carefully consider whether you want to attend or not.  If you do decide not come to Mass, please ring Deacon Chris (0401 696 438) if you would like Holy Communion to be brought to you at home.

·         We are running a simple booking system, because it would be very distressing for someone to come and have to be turned away. If you have not already done so, please either email the parish office (bungendore@cg.org.au) or text or ring Mary on 0417 977 576 before 5 pm on Saturdays to book in.  This will also assist us in complying with contact tracing requirements, as we will be able to prepare a list of the names and contact details for this as people book in. You will then just have to tick yourself off on the way in when you arrive.  This list is then locked away in the safe until the government says it’s no longer needed for contact tracing. (Currently 28 days).   

·         You will be advised where to sit. Members of the same household do not need to social distance from each other, so may sit together.

·         The priest or Eucharistic Minister will bring Communion to you in your seat .

·         The church will have been sanitised before and after Mass. 

·         Please minimise touching of furniture, door handles and switches to reduce cross-contamination. 

·         We will be having some instrumental music at times during Mass, but will not be having singing, as singing moves air (and therefore respiratory droplets) around much more than speaking.

·     To enable contactless collections, we now have a  ‘Tap and Go’ EFTPOS machine just inside the sliding glass door. There is also a Perspex box beneath this ‘Tap and Go’ machine for cash deposits. If you are wishing to donate to a particular collection, please use an envelope (provided) for your cash, and label for either 1st or 2nd collections. Money from EFTPOS will go to the 2nd collection. The 1st collection supports the clergy of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn and the 2nd collection supports the running of the parish.

·         Please remember that we now have tenants in the church house,  and be respectful of their privacy by not parking too close to the house.

·         Please be sensible about gathering around outside afterwards.
