You are invited to pre-register to join us for 8am Sunday Mass at our Northern Mass Centre.

About this Event

Bookings for Masses will now open 'one week before' they are due to be celebrated.

  • COVID-19 continues to have serious impacts on vulnerable people. If you are an older person, live with a compromised immune system, or have a chronic medical condition please seriously consider if you should attend Mass. The government is recommending that you remain at home to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19.
  • People who feel unwell, who have flu/respiratory symptoms, elevated body temperatures or who have been in contact in the previous 14 days with people suspected to have or who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are not permitted to register for, or attend, a Mass.

In their latest covid protocols NSW Health says: "congregants [are encouraged] to wear a mask during attendance at places of worship. Wearing a mask is not mandatory but is highly recommended. Mask wearing is not a substitute for physical distancing, but may further reduce risks".

- Therefore, while masks aren't mandatory, following this advice (and the advice of our diocesan authorities) parishioners for their safety and the safety of others are encouraged to wear a mask or face-covering when attending Mass. Monitors and Fr David will be wearing a face covering during the Mass, when performing their ministries.

Due to the positive outbreaks of COVID-19, and declared COVID-19 ‘hotspots’, in our local region:

  • monitors will only allow those whose names and contact details have been pre-registered to enter the church for Mass;
  • Those with a body temperature at or above 37.3c will be unable to enter the church building.
  • Allocated seating will be marked with stickers to ensure 1.5m distance social distancing; all parishioners (except for families with young children who reside in the same household) must be seated 1.5 metres apart.
  • the church toilets and bathroom facilities will now not be available for use.

If you are registering your family/household for one of the Masses, please count ALL of the children (including infants/babies) who will be attending.

  • When registering for a Mass you will be asked to provide your name and phone number so that the Health Department is able to contact you in the event that you come into contact with someone who has the coronavirus. This record of attendance with contact details must be kept by our parish for at least four weeks in accordance with government directives.
  • While some larger churches may be able to accommodate the 300 worshippers now allowed, our Northern Mass Centre at Leppington has a surface area for the congregation (including aisles) below 200 square metres. So we have had to reduce our congregational limit to allow 4 square metres per person (as well as ensure there is 1.5 metres between worshippers) thus only having space for 30 worshippers at each Mass.
  • Please remember that the Bishop's dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass remains in place. So if you are unable to secure a ticket to attend a Mass being offered at our Northern Mass Centre of St Mary Mother of God Leppington, I encourage you to participate in our 5pm Saturday Vigil Mass that is now livestreamed from our Southern Mass Centre on our parish YouTube channel at www.bit.ly/mmop-live (This Mass can also be viewed ‘on demand’ via our parish YouTube Channel)
