We Are COVID Safe
The St Brigid’s Parish Branxton-Greta and St Patrick’s Parish Singleton are committed COVIDSafe Businesses. You can read our COVID-19 Safety Plans and Conditions of Entry under the COVID-19 Updates on the Bulletins Page or a copy is on the noticeboard at each church. Please read these before attending Mass.
ORDERS IN PLACE UNTIL FRIDAY 16 JULY 2021, 11.59pm
As per the Public Health Order issued on 26 June 2021 and updated on Wednesday 7 July 2021, masks must be worn in indoor areas of non-residential buildings, including churches. You must wear a mask to Mass unless you have a valid exemption. Children 12 or under do not need to wear a mask. Masks may be removed to receive communion but must be put back on as soon as possible afterwards. A mask must also be worn when visiting the Parish Office.
Numbers have now been restricted to one (1) person per four (4) square metres. This means that the limits in our churches have decreased to St Patrick’s Church Singleton 80, St Brigid’s Church Branxton 75, St Catherine’s Church Greta 45, St Paul’s Church Glendonbrook 15 and Church of the Immaculate Conception Broke 15.
Singing is prohibited by congregants at indoor places of worship.
Registering to attend Mass
To attend Mass you will need to register by phoning the Parish Office on 02 5507 4048 or emailing email@example.com by 3pm Thursday.
Check-In to Mass with QR Code
You must now CHECK-IN by scanning the displayed ServiceNSW QR code with your smartphone. Once you’ve checked-in, show the Welcomer the green tick screen. This option means NSW Health can access parishioner details faster which makes contact tracing more efficient. Even if your name is on the registration sheet, please also use the QR code.
If you do not have a smart phone to check in, you can still place your name on the registration list at the back of the church.
A ServiceNSW QR code is also on display for use at the Parish Office. From 12 July all visitors MUST check in using this code.
Physical Distancing at Mass
With the threat of COVID-19 not prevalent in our area it is easy to forget that we should still be physically distancing from those we don’t share a house with. Please ensure you are maintaining 1.5m physical distancing while at Mass.
Please stay home if you are feeling unwell and have a COVID test so we can keep all our Parishioners safe and well.
