Our current parish policy for funerals in St, Matthew’s is that funeral Masses will be celebrated at 11.00 am. This is to ensure that we are able to provide stewards and personnel to record details of attendees at the funeral Mass. It is a requirement that the parish records names and contact phone numbers of all who attend the funeral. This is to facilitate the track and trace process in the event of the possibility of a Covid related incident in or around the church. These details will be retained for 21 days after which the records will be destroyed. Meanwhile, as a parish community we continue to pray for all who have died, and especially our own parishioners
May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
