Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Church Oatley. Parish Mass Times:
Relaxation of restrictions concerning Churches.
With the further easing of the restrictions regarding attendance of parishioners at Church for worship, there is no limit on the number of people who can attend Mass, provided a 2 square metre per person rule is adhered to. However, our Church will only hold at least eighty persons according to this rule, any overflow would have to be accommodated in the Marion Hall. There is still the requirement of taking names and contact details of attendees.
From Sunday, 7th June, the normal Mass timetable applies,
i.e. 5 pm (Vigil), 8 am and 10 am. Weekday Masses will be at 8 am, Monday to Saturday (9 am on Public Holidays).
I invite parishioners who wish to attend the Sunday Mass, preferably to email the office email@example.com , or contact Nicky, the Parish Secretary, on Thursday or Friday, to make a reservation (9580 1864). Please nominate the Mass you wish to attend and the number of persons. Parishioners who attended Mass last Sunday have already made their reservation for subsequent weeks. However, if the demand exceeds the requirements, I would be happy to add another Mass to the Sunday, timetable, perhaps at 9 am. Please note, only a maximum of fifty persons can attend any one Mass.
Confessions are now available before the 5 pm Vigil Mass (4 pm to 4.45 pm).
Christmas Masses: Christmas Eve: 5pm, 7pm, 9.30pm (Midnight Mass )
Christmas Day: 8 am and 10 am.
It is necessary that you book in for any of these Masses as the Covid 19 restrictions will allow only 80 persons In the Oatley Church. Some of the Masses are fully booked already. For those parishioners who cannot be accommodated this Christmas, the Mass will be live-streamed and can be accessed with the following link: bit.ly/stjoatley
