St Alipius Parish Worship arrangements
Updated January 21, 2021

The Liturgy Roster for the St Alipius Ballarat East community is now available.
Go to the “Ministry Roster” page to view or download the roster which runs through to the end of March.
Many thanks to everyone who responded to the survey, emails & phone calls made by Nicole and David over the last fortnight. However there are still 23 of the regular 62 pre-Covid people who had not responded. Hopefully we can have a full complement of Liturgical ministers available for the Easter & post-Easter roster. Nicole, Sharon & David will be in tough through the coming weeks.

St Alipius Parish has made COVIDSafe Summer arrangements Mass in our Parish churches.
We can now have the following number of people come to Mass:
– St Alipius: 180 people
– Ss Peter & Paul: 100 people in the main body of the church and 50 people in the Narthex.

(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).
You can pre-register to attend Mass or you can turn up for Mass on the day and use the camera function of your phone to use the QR Covid Comply app posters in each church foyer.

(both communities

1a. Go to the St Alipius Parish Mass Registration Page
1b. Select the Date & Mass
1c. Scroll to the bottom of the new page and click “Register to attend Mass”
1d. Register online or by phone by 5pm Friday each week.
The online registration form is your 1st preference. You can call the parish office (5332 6611) where your details will be added to the online system. When pre-registering, please register each person from your household separately so we don’t breach the limit regulations.

(both communities)

2. If the pre-registrations attendance limit has not been reached by 5pm Friday, people may attend on the day for Mass and use the CovidComply QR code (on the small posters around the church entrances) to register your contact details. There is a chance that if we have reached the church’s limits that people may be asked to remain outside or return home to engage in our recorded online Mass from the Saturday vigil.

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.


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 45 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.
