GUIDELINES FOR ATTENDING MASS Enter by the Front Door. There is a one-way system in operation in the church. (In through the front door, out by the side doors). Do not sit in any seat marked with an X (Those living in the same house can sit together). STAY IN YOUR SEAT at Communion and communion will be brought to you. When Mass is over, STAY IN YOUR SEAT until you are invited to leave through a particular door by the Priest / Steward .There are stewards who will help and we ask you to follow their safety directions and advice. Please listen to the priest as all new instructions will come from the altar Weekly Envelopes (planned giving), Donation to Parish & Diocese: Grateful thanks to everyone who continue to send in their Weekly Envelope. You may have noticed double envelopes on the tables in the church. These envelopes are to support the Priests of the Diocese and the maintenance of Diocesan Funds (i.e the 1st and 2nd collections) and are sent directly to Archbishop’s House. A donation button is also available on the Parish Website. Donations through the donate button go to the Parish. Thank you for your continued support of the Parish Sincere thank you to all who have supported the Church during the past months—your continued kindness is gratefully appreciated 8th August – 16th August 2020 Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily Assumption into Heaven, before her body could begin to decay—a foretaste of our own bodily resurrection at the end of time. Because it signifies the Blessed Virgin's passing into eternal life, it is the most important of all Marian feasts. To celebrate this great feast, the Novena begins in St Canice’s Parish Church on the 8th August and concludes on Sunday 16th August. Each day during the Novena there will be an opportunity for Reconciliation (Community Reconciliation) during the Penitential Rite of the Mass. We are also pleased to tell you a guest speaker will give a short input on the specific theme of the day.
