The recent rise in COVID cases throughout Victoria has led the government to extend the state of emergency for at least four more weeks. As of 11:59pm Sunday 21 June 2020, numbers in places of worship will remain at 20 until at least 12-July-2020 (dependant on trending health concerns and advice). This is deeply disappointing for us at St. Kevin’s as we were preparing to welcome larger numbers this week and progress a step closer to normalcy. We continue to strongly encourage everyone to follow our government’s advice and help to ensure the well-being and safety of our loved ones and our wider community.
Our parish newsletter for this weekend contains information about an online booking system to register your intention to attend weekday masses at St. Kevin’s. This was set up in anticipation of the number of attendees at our masses being increased to 50. Since the increase in the number of attendees is no longer going ahead, the online booking system has been suspended for the immediate future and we are reverting to the booking system in the church foyer that we’ve had in place for the last few weeks.
While our intention is to honour all confirmed bookings that were made via our online booking system, unfortunately we are over-subscribed for a couple of Masses in the coming week (i.e. we’ve got more than 20 confirmed attendees). If you are one of the individuals that can now no longer be permitted to attend a Mass that you have a confirmation for, one of our Sacristians will reach out to you during the week and let you know.
Please check our Mass Times page for details of our Mass timings and instructions on how you can register to attend one of our weekday masses.
