Greetings of Peace, Joy and Love,

My dearest people of God of the Church of St. Jude Thaddeus, Rawang and Chapel of St. Michael, Batu Arang

Soon, very soon we will be reopening our Churches for Mass but sad to say not all of us will be able to come. Those who are not well, senior citizens who are 70 years old and above and children below the age of 12 will not be allowed according to the SOP given to us. Arrangements will be made to bring communion for them, especially our beloved senior citizens and homebound persons.

In addition, only one third of our community can be present at each Mass. In the Church of St. Jude Thaddeus Rawang it is 210 persons while at the Chapel of St. Michael, Batu Arang it will only be 85 persons for each Mass.

Due to the many restrictions we will only be having multilingual masses and attendance will be determined by the name list provided by your respective BEC Leaders. As such I urge all of you to contact your respective BEC Leaders and give them the required details of you and your family members. Do this as soon as possible for us to organise well for the reopening of Churches for Mass.

In addition, to the above I have prepared a list of do's and don’ts for us to prepare ourselves to attend Mass in a very peaceful and spirit filled atmosphere. For the present moment migrants will not be allowed to attend Masses. However, if you have migrants in your BEC or you know some of them personally do record their names and telephone contact and pass them to your respective BEC Leader.

Remember only BAPTISED AND PRACTISING CATHOLIC will be allowed for the present time. Non - Catholic spouses will not be allowed. This is because they are not able to participate in the Eucharistic celebration and as a such a baptised and practising catholic is deprived of his or her privilege to attend Mass and receive communion. It is difficult but for the present moment this is the best decision for all.

As for wedding Mass/Service, we will not be having any. All couples who planned for dates this year have postponed their weddings for next year. The present SOP only allows for 20 persons and weddings dinners not allowed at church premises.

Funeral Mass will be allowed at a later date but with restrictions. Details will be discussed with families concerned when the need arises. Those needing confessions call me and make appointments.

Finally, please refer to the do's and don’ts list and come well prepared for Mass when your turn comes. Let us come back to a more united, committed and vibrant church and YES, bring along all the cash you have saved as your Sunday collection.

God is with us. Emmanuel.
