INFORMATION REGARDING PARISH MASSES RESTARTING
18 May 2020
Dear School Community We have received this information from our Parish regarding restarting of Parish Masses.
Dear Parish Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try our best to give everyone a chance to attend Mass in this difficult time.
From Monday May 18th, we will be able to have public Masses attended by 10 parishioners at a time (not including altar servers, readers and other volunteers).
Fr Deva has kindly agreed to conduct Masses on most days of the week, including two Masses at St. James Cygnet on Saturday evenings from next week (23rd May) and two Masses at St Mary of the Cross Ranelagh on Sunday mornings from 24th May.
To try to ensure that everyone will be able to attend Mass if they wish, we are trying a booking system where members of the Pastoral Council will try to contact all those who we have phone numbers for and book them in for at least one opportunity to attend Mass this first week. After this week, we ask that you phone either Kathy (0400893267), Louise (0432665705) or Rachel (0417312156) to book a place for the next week if you wish to.
The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has not been reinstated, so if you are concerned for your health (eg elderly, immunocompromised) or if you are feeling unwell in any way please do not attend.
Please use hand sanitiser on the way into the church and sit in the front pews at a distance of 1.5m from others. The pews will be cleaned down after each Mass and Father Deva will be using hand sanitiser immediately before distributing the Eucharist.
When coming forward to receive Holy Communion please form a single line in the aisle and keep a distance of 1.5m between people.
The sacrament of penance will be available after each Mass on request.
There will be a collection at each Mass (not just the weekend ones) so that everyone will have the chance to contribute towards the upkeep of the parish.
Thank you and God bless you
The Pastoral Council of the Huon Valley Catholic Parish (on behalf of Fr Deva)

Finally, all packs that are not distributed tomorrow will be left at the following locations(labelled with your child's name) ready for you to collect from Monday morning.

Please find attached the latest press release for Dr. Gerard Gaskin Executive Director of Catholic Education Tasmania.
Over the past few days, we have had a significant number of students away from school. If your child is presenting with a cold or influenza, they should remain at home until they have fully recovered and no longer contagious.
Please continue to support your child with encouraging good hygiene practices, especially with the washing of hands and coughing into their elbow.
Parents and guardians are advised that teachers will not be providing school work for your child to complete at home if you chose to keep your child away from school.
In the event of a school closure, the school will provide learning opportunities for your child to complete while they are at home.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support during these challenging times. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
