Parish Zoom Liturgy 12 September 2021

More than 60 people came together to celebrate and share the Parish Liturgy of The Word on Sunday morning. Our thanks go out to all those who did the mahi to ensure a smooth and inclusive service.
Parishioners shared the Readings, Prayers, reflections and singing.

One of the reflections shared was:
Fratelli Tutti animation | CAFOD
Pope Francis released his encyclical titled Fratelli Tutti on October 4 2020. Fratelli Tutti is addressed to ‘brothers and sisters all’ and in it he asks everyone to reach out to our sisters and brothers in need, whoever they are, wherever they may come from.  He says ‘We need to think of ourselves more and more as a single family living in a common home.’ (FT 17)


Message from Cardinal John

The full letter from Cardinal John is available at this link.
We do not know how long we will be in Level 2 or whether the increased restrictions in this level might be relaxed a little at a later date while still keeping us in Level 2. Therefore these instructions apply in parishes until Tuesday 21 September, at which point I will communicate with you again:
 There are to be NO public Masses or other liturgical events or in-person parish gatherings in the Archdiocese.
 Churches are to be closed except for funerals, as it is difficult to monitor contact tracing, social distancing, mask wearing, and numbers.
 Funerals can take place with a maximum of 50 people in total, with the required social distancing, contact tracing, and wearing of masks. Funerals can take place in a church, and meetings with the family can take place with observance of the Level 2 requirements. The funeral director’s instructions must be followed”
