Dear Parishioners and Friends of Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish at Terrigal,

Here at OUR LADY STAR OF THE SEA PARISH TERRIGAL - Current Public Health (COVID-19) Restrictions allow up to 50 people (plus Fr Pawel and plus the people necessary to conduct or assist in the conduct of, the service) to attend each Mass within the Church. You will also be required to sign in as you come into the Church for Mass. Morning Mass will continue at 8.30 am Tuesday to Saturday with live streaming (you will be notified when the Mass will revert back  to 7.30am).

WEEKEND MASSES: Will revert back to the normal times VIGIL 5pm       Sunday: 7am   8:30am   10:00am
If you are attending our weekend Mass, (OR if you are a reader or server) there is no need to register prior to Mass, simply sign-in when you arrive.

The names of each person at any gathering must be recorded.

Weddings: In addition to the couple, the people conducting or assisting in the conduct of the wedding, a photographer, videographer, and up to 20 guests (including adults and children) may attend a wedding.

Funerals may be permitted for groups of 50 people indoors and practising social distancing of 4 square metres per person and hand hygiene through the ready use of sanitiser at church entrances. 

The Sacrament of Baptisms may be celebrated with greater capacity, as up to 20 people may participate in the celebration of the Rite.  

We need to continue to have only one family present at a celebration of the Rite each time. 

RECONCILIATION WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER SATURDAY MORNING MASS. (or by appointment). This is a challenge for each of us. We rejoice in every step closer to the time we can fill our churches again.                     
God Bless you Fr Pawel
