Mass Ushers Urgently Required for Christmas – Training Tues 15 Dec 7pm

Thank you to those who have volunteered to assist our community as Ushers and Welcomers for the weekend Masses. Your service and generosity is what allows us to be able to have Masses during this Covid-normal time.

We are looking for more volunteers who are willing to be trained up as an Usher/Welcomer for future Masses, especially for the Christmas period where we will need more Ushers/Welcomers.

If you are able to assist us, kindly contact the Parish Office this week on 9401 6367 or at [email protected]

There will be a training session on Tues 15 Dec at 7:00pm in the Paulist Centre.

Work is underway in preparation to resume weekend Masses when the government moves to Step 3 of its Roadmap to Easing Restrictions (date still to be announced). Under its Covidsafe Plan we are required to:

  • Maintain 1.5M distancing and good hygiene
  • Stay home if unwell
  • Frequently clean and disinfect communal areas.

In order to resume weekend Masses we are appealing to our parishioners for assistance. Your help is needed either as a cleaner after Mass or as an usher during Mass. Volunteer cleaners are required to sanitise chairs, other furnishings and surfaces that are touched frequently. Ushers are needed to oversee people movements and ensure they move throughout the Paulist Centre in an orderly manner and maintain social distancing.

There will be a training session for all volunteer cleaners and ushers on Friday 26th June at 7:00pm in the Paulist Centre.

We are anticipating that we will have enough volunteers to resume all four weekend Masses and hoping to introduce a roster for volunteers. If you are able to volunteer to clean or usher at a weekend Mass please let the Parish Office know either by email ([email protected]) or phone (9401 6367) and provide your name, whether you want to clean or be an usher and which Mass time you can help out at.

It is very important that we maintain a safe environment for everyone to celebrate the Eucharist together and we will not be able to proceed without your help.

Special thanks to our St James Primary School for providing space in the Paulist Centre for temporary worship. To Thomas Carr College for the use of the chapel for our weekday Masses and providing storage space. And to our neighbouring Parish St Peter’s, Hoppers Crossing, for allowing us to store the church pews.
