Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As from the 1st July, Ryde- Gladesville Parish is able to hold 100 worshipers at St Charles Borromeo and 66 worshippers at Our Lady Queen of Peace.

From Monday 3rd August:

    • 100 people at SCB & 66 people at OLQP will be permitted to attend Masses

    • All those visiting the church for Mass, other religious services or private prayer are strongly recommended to wear a face mask

    • No congregational singing is permitted at Masses, as per NSW Department of Health advice. Even with a face mask, mass attendees are not permitted to sing at services, as this is a high risk activity.

    • Ryde-Gladesville has returned to its regular weekend Mass schedule - please see our Mass Times

    • Only the 10am Sunday Mass and 9:20am Daily Mass at St Charles will be live streamed

    • If attending physical Masses, attendees MUST sign in and out, continue to observe social distancing measures, and must be seated at least 5 mins before Mass starts.

    • Bookings are still required for weekend Masses. Weekday Masses however are available on a first come first served basis, and bookings are not required.

    • To book a spot at Weekend Mass, please go to our website www.rgcp.org.au, go to the Mass booking button and follow the prompts to make your booking. Bookings open on Monday at 7am and close on Fridays at 3pm each week.

    • St Charles Church is open for private prayer and Adoration from 7am to 5pm, however only 100 people (including essential staff & volunteers) are permitted inside at any one time, and social distancing and hygiene measures still apply. The church will be monitored by staff and volunteers during visiting hours.

    • Our Lady Queen of Peace Church will only be open for Mass at 5pm on Saturday and 9am on Sunday, and is not open during the week for private prayer or daily Mass until further notice.

  • If you are visiting the Parish for any other reason, please continue to observe hygiene and social distancing measures. Please leave any deliveries, intentions or donations in the Parish foyer, and only enter the office if especially necessary.

We thank you for your patience and co-operation as we work towards all of us being back at Mass over the coming few months.

We will continue to provide updates on the COVID-19 situation here on our website, as well as our Parish blog and Facebook page.

Apart from that, never forget how much Jesus loves you, despite everything that is happening, and how utterly pleasing you all are to him, persevering in your faith as you are. I, for one, am very proud of my Parish and her efforts to become a missionary outpost in this little neck of the Lord's Vineyard!

Ever your brother, in Christ's undaunted love,

Fr. Greg
