The process for registering for weekday & weekend Masses  is different, as outlined below: 

Registration: Weekend Masses
( Saturday 4:30 pm & all Sunday Masses)

  • Advanced phone Registration (first name, last name, telephone number) is mandatory for the weekend Masses (walk-ins will not be admitted). 
  • Registration for Weekend Masses follows an alphabetical system of priority, based on the last name of parishioner (details in table above)
  • Advanced Registration is necessary for the following reasons: 
    • To ensure that the 50 person gathering limit is kept.
    • To allow parishioners to choose the Sunday Mass they prefer to attend (insofar as possible)
    • To retain a record of contact information of those in attendance, so that in the case of an individual who tests positive for COVID-19, the parish will be able to assist public health officials with tracing by contacting everyone who may have been exposed.
  • In the following weeks we will continue with last names according to an alphabetical sequence that will be determined and communicated on a weekly basis.


Registration: Weekday Masses
( Monday - Friday 8.15 am & Saturday 9.00 am)

  • Advanced phone registration is NOT required to attend weekday Masses ( Monday - Friday at 8.15 am, Saturday at 9.00 am).
  • Weekday Masses are now open to ALL Parishioners on a first-come, first-serve basis. 
  • Sign-up (first name, last name & phone number) will take place “at the door" directly before Mass, and will be open until the permitted 50 person limit is reached.
  • To attend weekday Mass, simply show-up, no earlier than 30 minutes before Mass ( if you arrive before this time, we ask that you wait in your car), line-up (2 m apart), and register at the door to be admitted into the Church.
