WELCOME TO ST FRANCIS XAVIER PARISH
(27 June 2020)
With the Phase Four of W.A.’s COVID response now in effect we have returned to our regular schedule of Sunday Masses. In other words, we will again have Mass at 7:30am and 9:30am on Sundays at St Francis Xavier, instead of the makeshift schedule of the past few weeks. Furthermore, the 100-person limit in places of worship has been lifted, allowing up to one person for every two square metres. For St Francis Xavier, this means we can have 250 people at any one time, or 335 with the folding wall open. At St Kevin’s in Serpentine we may now have up to 40 people at any one time.
I’m also pleased to say that we no longer have to ask you to sign-in or reserve places for Mass, either during the week or on Sundays. We will however be maintaining our sign-in procedure for church visits during office hours for safeguarding purposes (not including daily Mass). Use of hand sanitiser and social distancing continue to be conditions of entry.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during the upheavals of recent weeks. Welcome back to St Francis Xavier!
God bless, Fr Mark
