Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Brooklyn Park/Richmond
POSTPONED: Parish Family Play Date
DUE TO THE HOT WEATHER FORECASTED FOR SUNDAY, THE PARISH FAMILY PLAY DATE HAS BEEN POSTPONED
It will be rescheduled in the coming weeks.
Current COVID Restrictions
We are permitted 1 person per 2 sqm. That means the capacity is:
St John Bosco - 114
St Aloysius - 146
Use the QR Code at the doors to register your attendance at the church. If you cannot use the QR Code, record your contact details on the sign up sheet (in case it is needed for contact tracing)
What stays the same?
Please continue to use hand sanitiser at the doors.
There continues to be no Holy Water, Offertory Procession, no Sign of Peace and no passing of collection baskets (Donation containers for the 1st and 2nd Collection are near the sanctuary of the church).
Communion will still be administered by the priest only and we have been asked by the Bishop to distribute Communion in the hand.
Archbishop O’Regan has confirmed that the Sunday obligation is still dispensed so please stay home if you are not feeling well
Getting Catholic TV Streaming through Formed.org
I am thrilled to tell you that our Parish subscription to Formed.org has come through. And as parishioners you are entitled to a free subscription to the service.
What is Formed.org?
It's basically Catholic Netflix - a streaming service which allows you to view Catholic content on demand. It has inspirational movies and documentaries on the lives of the saints, programs about the Scriptures and the Catholic faith, and it has some terrific programs for kids. You can participate in Mass and other devotions. There are audio programs and audiobooks for when you're on the go, and there is a wide selection of ebooks, both fiction and non-fiction.
How do I get access to it?
It's free to you under our parish subscription! So, take a look.
