Consider vaccination as soon as is practical for you   See Bishop Greg Bennet's letter regarding Vaccinations from Feb 2021

 

We are pleased to be able to gather once again for the Eucharist and prayer under the guidelines of the Chief Health Officer.

We ask that you kindly use the QR code provided which indicates your attendance and validates your vaccination status. If you do not have a mobile phone, please sign in providing name, contact detail and signing the verification of your vaccination status.

Parishes are planning to be able to celebrate Masses for those who are unable to be vaccinated. Please check with your parish as to which Mass times are offered locally.

Parishes are adjusting to new routines associated with the easing of restrictions, we ask that you please be patient as your parish team puts new processes in place. 

We thank you for your respectful care of your sisters and brothers in faith.

Prayers

An Act of Spiritual Communion

The simple and loving act of Spiritual Communion (written by St. Alphonsus Liguori) can be made when we are unable to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist.

Pray these words:

My Jesus,
I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You;
never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.
