WEEKEND MASSES

There will be two masses offered – Saturday at 6.00pm and Sunday at 10.00am both at St Joseph’s Church Malvern. Numbers are still limited to 70 people per Mass. Everyone attending is asked to be there around 20 minutes before Mass commences. Also, everyone attending will be asked to use the QR Code. Volunteers will be on hand to assist those who do not have a smartphone or just need help using it.

 

THERE IS NOW NO NEED TO PRE-BOOK TO ATTEND A MASS, WE ARE ONLY USING THE QR CODE FOR ALL ATTENDEES. PLEASE NOTE WE ARE STILL LIMITED TO 70 PER MASS.

 

As of Sunday 17th February at 11.59pm the wearing of masks inside the Church is no longer mandatory but individual choices to keep wearing one should be respected.

 

SERVICE VICTORIA QR CODE APP

It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Office that some parishioners are having trouble using the QR code on their mobile phones. As assistance to everyone we are suggesting that you install on your mobiles the Service Victoria COVID-19 Check-in APP.

 

If you are still having problems, there will be volunteers at the Church who will be able to assist you with the check-in process.

 

NOMINATIONS FOR THE PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

Last year I called for nominations by 22nd December for the Parish Pastoral Council. There are four places to be filled due to some members completing their term. I have received no response to date. I ask if some thought could be given to this and recommendations sent to me either by contacting me on 9401 6391 or email agibson@stjosephsmalvern.org.au by January 31st.

 

WEEKDAY MASSES

I am pleased to advise that the weekday Mass on Tuesdays will recommence starting next Tuesday 2nd February at 9.15am. Registration will be by QR code. For those wishing to attend please arrive at the Church between 8.55am and 9.10am as this greatly assists the registration process. Also please sit in the front seats as this also helps both with the distribution of Communion and cleaning.

 

ANOINTING MASSES

At this stage due to current restrictions it is not possible to return to the monthly Anointing Masses that we were having in the Parish prior to COVID-19. This situation will be

monitored to see when a return to having Mass which includes Anointing of the Sick might be possible.

 

RETURN TO CABRINI HOSPITAL CHAPEL FOR MASSES

A few weeks ago I had a conversation with Pastoral Care Services at Cabrini Hospital about a possible return to the Chapel for Masses at Cabrini on both Thursday at midday and

Saturday evening at 6.00pm. I mentioned that any request for a return would need to allow a minimum of 10 days’ notice so that all parishioners can be informed. No date has been set at this stage. Again I will keep you updated on this situation.

JoCare

JoCare is a free service supported by St Joseph’s Malvern and Cabrini Outreach. The vision of JoCare is directed to encouraging friendship and support within neighbourhoods in the local Malvern area. Residents in the Malvern area are welcome as volunteers or recipients of the services offered by JoCare. It is expected that volunteers or recipients will come from a wide cross-section of our local community. Some will undertake JoCare service as an expression of their Christian faith in action. Others see their service to their neighbour as a means of connecting with others and as fulfilling their desire to build community.

 

JOCARE GATHERING

Everyone is welcome.

As a parish we have not been able to gather for many many months. Come and join us, share some time reconnecting with old friends.

Tuesday 2nd February @ 10.00am-12noon, the lawn area between Presbytery and Church

Under Government guidelines we are able to gather outside. A COVID-19 safe plan will be in place.
