September 18/19



Liturgy Roster – September

Now that we can have 20 people at Mass, we will need those rostered for
Sacristan,
– Welcomer
– Reader
– Music/PowerPoint operator
to attend as rostered.

If you are on the Liturgy Roster, please ensure that your WCC Check documents are provided to the Parish Office as soon as possible.
There is no need for the person rostered to pre-register to attend Mass. If your family members are attending, lease have them pre-registered.

Liturgy Ministries and Working With Children checks

During this quiet time of gathering and celebrating Mass online, it is a wonderful opportunity for all those who have volunteered to be involved in the liturgical ministries to finalise their WWC documentation.
If you have received an email from the Parish Office regarding this, please use these early weeks of September to follow up on your application and return the documentation to the Parish Office (for both St Alipius & Ss Peter & Paul communities).
If you haven’t received an email from the Parish Office, please call on 5332 6611.

Once people have forwarded their WWC checks to the Parish Office please click on the button below to fill in your rostering for October through to December as you are able.

Please help us keep our Mass alive – we need more people to engage in the Liturgical Ministries

Attending Mass isn’t just a duty anymore. We choose to spend time in dialogue with God with a community. Sometimes we have roles to fill. Other times we like to be in a safe embrace within the body of the community. However, for some of us in the parish, we have little time to enjoy ‘just being’ as roles need to be undertaken and there are very few (less than 40) who are engaged in roles so the community can have ‘full and active participation at Mass’.

For each Mass, we need 15 people to undertake liturgical ministry roles. That is 25-30 people each weekend. We are only just a fraction above this number and it is important that more people volunteer to be involved so the same people are not called upon nearly every week.

The Liturgy Team is keen to only call on people once every month so we can have flexibility in the way we spend our weekends. If you or anyone in your family can be involved, you will find it worthwhile and spiritually rewarding. You will get to know more people in the St Alipius community as well.

Find out about the various roles on the “Be Involved” page.

Please put yourself forward to join our Liturgical Ministries.


SEPTEMBER- SAFE MASS

St Alipius Parish has made COVIDSafe Spring arrangements Mass in our Parish churches.
We can currently have the following number of people come to Mass:
– St Alipius: 20 people
– Ss Peter & Paul: 20 people

PROVIDING YOUR CONTACT DETAILS FOR MASS
(both communities)

So that we can have these numbers of people attend Mass, the parish is required to electronically collect each person’s contact details (over the age of 1).
We now no longer have pre-registrations as all contact information must be collected through the Victorian Government QR code system. These are on display in the porch of both curches.

Attendance protocols.

Please read the Protocols for attending Mass (from THIS LINK or in the Main Menu above) and make sure you wear your mask for all of Mass, except communion.

welcomers

NB: We are in need of ‘Welcomers’ to be trained up to assist through until at least mid 2021.
If you can be at the church 30 minutes before Mass to setup and greet people as they arrive, please complete THIS WEBFORM or call David Santamaria on 0427310564.
We’ll organise a Training Session as soon as practically possible.
