Mass Attendance at St James

Mass Attendance at St James

EFFECTIVE FROM THIS WEEKEND (08/09 MAY):

Pre-Booking for Mass Finished:

After listening to concerns being raised, pre-bookings for weekend Masses will no longer be available. Instead, starting this weekend (08/09 May), people will be admitted on a first come – first served basis. Once the number of people in the church reaches the limit permitted under government COVID regulations, the Paulist Centre will be used to accommodate any overflow of people.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation during these challenging times with COVID restrictions. We are also grateful to our volunteer ushers and invite you to be courteous to them as they continue to help provide a safe and compliant place for celebrating Mass.

QR Code Scanning:

QR Code scanning and registration is still a government requirement for all people attending a church. Please continue to scan the Church QR code upon entry. Ushers will be available to help if needed.

We are seeking a volunteer who will be able to step into the role of Coordinator for this invaluable ministry. It will involve liaising with families, Fr Jude, the Catechists and the Parish Office to offer the children from our Parish who do not attend our Catholic schools the opportunity to have classes to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. The Coordinator does not necessarily teach the formation classes, but will instead be involved in coordinating the Catechists (who teach the program) and the families who attend it.

If you would like more information, please contact the Parish Office on 9401 6367.

Sacristans Required

The role of the Sacristan in the church is a very important one as she or he sets up and makes sure everything is in place for the proper celebration of the Mass. The Sacristan would normally open up the church about 45 minutes before Mass starts. At this stage we urgently need Sacristans for the Saturday 6:00pm, Sunday 7:30am, 10:30am and 5:00pm Masses.

Please contact the Parish Office for more details at [email protected] or at 9401 6367.
