COVID-19 Updates

As the Corona Virus causes chaos all over the world including our Parish, we are all filled with fear and anxiety not knowing what the future holds.

Due to the Covid – 19 restriction, public liturgies and celebrations of mass will resume in church as from Monday 2nd November 2020 ‘All Souls Day’, we will have Masses at 9.00am, 12.00noon and 4.00pm. Then we will have Masses till Saturday at 9.00am except on Wednesday 4th November 2020 as we have a funeral. We will follow all the restriction of having only 10 people at each Mass and abiding by the sanitization rules. You will have to book in through TryBooking https://www.trybooking.com/BMMVM. Please be considerate and book ONLY FOR TWO MEMBERS per family. If you feel sick or have cough or cold then please stay at home. This is for the safety of everyone, not only for those who come but also for your families at home. We expect more changes to be announced by the government next week. If we remain the same or are allowed to have more people we will have our weekend Masses on Saturday at 6.00pm, Sunday at 9.00am, 11.30am and 4.00pm. We will limit the numbers according to the government and diocese guidelines. We will still have our Saturday evening Mass streamed live and uploaded as usual for those who can’t come. At present let us concentrate on the days of this week and coming weekend. We will give you more information next weekend according to the guidelines
