 Gatherings are limited to 100 - we will be using a 'first in first served' ticket system, so please arrive early for your preferred Mass time.

Our church requirements during Alert Level II include the following:
1. Masks must be worn by everyone while in church. Each church will have a small supply of masks (for those who forget)
2. People entering the church must sign in using the COVID-19 tracer app (or sign in manually and use hand sanitizer. Signing in must include children over the age of 12
3. You may be asked to help us with this process, firstly by welcoming people and then ensuring that everyone signs in, is wearing a mask and a reminding people to keep 2m spacing.
4. Church seating will be marked allowing 2m spacing in each direction. 
5. Holy Communion is only to be given in the hand. Ministers are not free to place the host on people’s tongues. This is not negotiable.
6. The 100 participant limit does not include the presider, musicians, readers, coordinator and eucharistic ministers.
7. The Holy Water fonts are to remain empty
8. No singing at Mass or during funerals
9. No Altar Servers.
10. The priest is to wear a mask, except when reading the Gospel, giving the homily, praying from the Presider’s Chair
11. During Communion, the priest and Eucharistic Ministers must keep their mask on.
12. When coming forward to receive Communion, parishioners are to keep 2m distance from others, remove their masks when receiving the host (on the hand) step to one side remove their mask to receive the host and then replace it as they make their way back to their seat.

To be very clear, everyone is obliged to follow the public health requirements, because public safety comes before personal rights and personal opinions.

This is our new 'normal'.

We're looking forward to seeing you all!

 The vision of a parish centre for the CPoNP

 (Presented to parishioners February 2021)

We need a new building that represents the vision and functioning of a missional parish for the 2020’s and beyond. It would have the capacity to give priests and parish staff; offices; meeting rooms for RCIA; Children’s Liturgy; St Vincent de Paul; Liturgy/Finance, Health & Safety Committees, and the multitude of groups that meet within the parish. It would contain a welcoming and hospitable reception with private, friendly, accessible places to meet. Possibly with a chapel for winter weekday Masses/ prayer and a connection to the church foyer. With the St Joseph’s Church and hall, it would serve as the Catholic mission centre for the city.

Our two-storey parish office and presbytery has served us well for 63 years. However, it is designed as a residence for 4/5 priests and has been turned predominantly into offices and meeting rooms. This is an awkward combination to live with. It was not designed for this purpose and can be a maze for people to navigate. The decision was made 3 years ago, to build a new presbytery which is now completed, at the former St Philomena’s site. This was intended to be stage 1. Stage 2 was for a parish centre. When the priests move into their new presbytery, the St Joseph’s presbytery/parish office will effectively become a temporary parish centre.

The challenge we face with the St Joseph’s presbytery/parish office is that it has passed its economic life: It requires earthquake strengthening, does not meet fire safety code, the electric wiring is no longer serviceable by electricians. The plumbing burst on a Sunday morning last year. Internet facility requires some management. Built in 1958 it represents the vision and functioning needs of a parish from the 1950’s.  I do not think this is healthy for the parish or its visitors.   -  Father Simon Story
