30th January 2022



4th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Masses under COVID-19 Red Framework System

Last Monday 24 January the country was moved into the Red Protection framework for COVID-19. This means a change to the way we gather for Sunday Mass.

We are now allowed a maximum of 100 people (with Vaccine Passes) at Sunday Mass. This number does not include those who have ministries at the Mass e.g. priest, readers, special ministers etc. These people do not have to book when they are rostered for these ministries.

The booking system set up by the Diocese earlier in the pandemic is again being used. It will be open each week from Tuesday at midday until 1pm Friday afternoon. All our Sunday Masses in the Parish this weekend will require a Vaccine Pass and be limited to 100 people.

The link to register is:


Mass for Parishioners without a Vaccine Pass

This weekend it is not possible to offer a Mass for those who do not have a Vaccine Pass. However, from next weekend, there will be an additional Mass in the Parish for those who do not have a Vaccine Pass. This Mass will be celebrated on Saturday evening at 5.30pm in St Mary’s Church. As this Mass is limited to 25 people it will only be for those who do not have a Vaccine Pass.

Facemask Requirements

The government has mandated that from next Thursday 3 February a facemask must be worn at all gatherings. This includes church and religious services. I suggest that, if we are not already doing so, we should be adopting this practice from today.

Please be aware that some of our parishioners have an exemption from the Ministry of Health and are not required to wear a facemask. I ask that parishioners refrain from challenging anyone who may not be wearing a mask because there is probably a good reason for it. If you have any questions about someone not wearing a mask please speak with me.
