to Our Website
Welcome to Para Hills Modbury Catholic Parish and to our parish website. This site will hopefully provide you with the information you require as well as a broad overview of the many different activities that occur in our parish. This parish consists of the communities of Holy Trinity at Para Hills and St John XXIII at Hope Valley and Modbury that together form Para Hills Modbury Catholic Parish. In both of these communities you will find a warm welcome and a practical living of the Gospel in a variety of ministries and outreach to the wider community.
As you would be aware the South Australian Premier Steven Marshall made an announcement late this morning. The state-wide lockdown will cease effective from midnight Saturday, 21st November 2020.
This means that churches may re-open following the guidelines outlined below:
- Churches are capped at 100 people whilst maintaining 1 person per 4 square metres.
- Funerals are capped at 50 people whilst maintaining 1 person per 4 square metres.
- Weddings in churches cannot exceed the 150 people permitted in church whilst maintaining 1 person per 4 square metres and registration of all guests are required with SA Health. We ask for your continued cooperation in this matter.
We would like to inform you that all the masses from Sunday November 22nd will be celebrated. There will be restrictions on number of people who can attend. Only 70 people can be there at 10 am mass at Holy Trinity and 100 people can be there at St John XXIII. If you have booked for masses at St John XXIII you are free to come over. At Holy Trinity it will be the first 70 people for this weekend and for future please ring up and book. Weekdays you are free to come over for the mass even if you have not made a prior booking.
