We continue to ask attendees to record details of all who attend Mass. Please depart earlier than usual to allow time to record your details at the Church. This will allow services to start on time and reduce a bottle-neck at entry.

There is also a QR code in place in both churches and in the various meeting rooms in the Parish, as well as sign in sheets in all buildings. Please arrive early to allow time to record attendance at services.
