Each candidate for Communion may bring a maximum of 9 guests as we adhere to COVID safe practices at the Parish. All attendees are required to log in using the Service NSW QR check-in code and sanitise their hands on arrival. Please remain in your family group and maintain physical distancing from other families. Masks are recommended for anyone over 12 years.

Please note the children at St Michael's Parish celebrate their first Holy Communion in Year 3 (or above). They are required to have been baptised in the Catholic faith and to have made their first Reconciliation prior to making their first Communion. If they have not made their first Reconciliation they should contact Fr Geoffrey or enrol in the program run in October.
