1 June 2020
I am writing to you about the latest WA Government’s easing of the COVID-19 restrictions in Phase 3.
As we await Archbishop Timothy Costelloe’s new Directives with regard to the celebration of public Masses, we need to start preparing as the numbers for each Mass will be limited and there will be a set of protocols that we will be required to comply with.
At St Emilie’s we are planning to have 5 Masses on the weekend as of 6 June 2020: 6.30pm on Saturday; and on Sunday 7.30am; 9.30am; 3pm and 5pm. The weekday Mass Times will remain unchanged.
To assist with managing the numbers allowed, we plan to set up Mass groups of up to 200 people seated in 3 separate areas for each Mass. This unfortunately does not allow for the flexibility we have enjoyed in the past of attending Mass on the spur of the moment or attending multiple Masses on a weekend.
To assist with the administration of setting up these Mass groups, please RSVP as soon as possible to the Parish Office by email advising –
– which Mass time you would want to register for
– how many people would be in your family
The Parish Office email address is: email@example.com.
Please state your Mass times in order of preference. By the end of this week we will confirm by email which Mass group & time you belong to.
And finally, as we strive to work within these restrictions the best we can and endeavour to ensure that you and your family are able once again to celebrate the various Liturgies in our Parish Church, I urge you to be patient and considerate with each other during this difficult time.
