Welcome to St. Mary Queen of Heaven, Georges Hall
Dear parishioners and friends,
Recent Government announcements regarding COVID-19 have advised of the closure of ‘places of worship’ and in line with this the Archdiocese has advised “all public Masses and other communal devotions, whether inside churches or outdoors, are suspended in the Archdiocese ” and parishioners are “dispensed from attending Sunday Mass “.
Please continue to check this website for information about any permitted celebration of Mass, other liturgies or other celebrations in our Parish.
The Archdiocese has also advised that the following changes apply:
- First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation are to be postponed until the pandemic is over.
- Baptisms are not recommended, and should be postponed for at least six months where they prudently can be. If they are required, only immediate family (parents and Godparents) are permitted to attend.
- Funerals, only “very small groups” (i.e. immediate family) are permitted to attend.
- Weddings “may now only be celebrated with “very small groups” (i.e. immediate family)“.
For all the the above, social distancing regulations and any other Government controls must be adhered to.
