Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The National Security Council (NSC) has announced that social events are now allowed starting from 5th March 2021 at RMCO and CMCO areas. This includes feasts, wedding, engagement, prayers, anniversary celebration, reunions and retreat. Maximum seating capacity by 50% area size is also now allowed.
Taking into consideration these new MCO developments, I would like to communicate the following :
1). Daily Mass will resume starting from 8 March 2021 but ONLY in St. Michael’s Church. Mass will start at 6.30 am every day. Daily Masses at other churches are still temporarily put on hold.
2). Pre Marriage Seminars, Infants baptism, lay movements/ministries meetings and other parish related activities are also allowed with strict observations to the SOP. Participants, however would need to fill up a screening form available in the Parish Website or distributed by the organizer.
3) Online mass at 8.00 am and drive through Holy Communion at St. Michael’s Church from 12.00 pm to 12.30 pm will still be continued.
4) Only children 10 years old and above are allowed to participate in the Sunday Masses/Sunday services). Notice that infant baptism is an exception.
5) No individual Lenten confession this year, as announced in the Parish Website, but we have arranged schedule for Penitential Service with General Absolution at all zones. Please make an effort to join any of the services.
Let us continue to pray for a better tomorrow and deliverance from Covid-19 pandemic.
