(Updated 15 January 2022)

We had earlier announced that as of 1st Feb 2022, VDS (Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures) is required for congregational and worship services irrespective of event size.  
However until we receive further instructions from the authorities, the booking of Masses for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated will continue as normal for February.  
In addition, the 20% quota for vaccinated masses will be lifted. This means that all unvaccinated children 12 years and below will be able to attend masses without restriction.  We apologise for the confusion caused.

16th January 2022
Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
1st reading: Isaiah 62:1-5
2nd reading: 1 Corinthians 12:4-11
Gospel: John 2:1-11

REVELATION OF GOD’S PRESENCE
Today’s first reading from Isaiah arises out of the ordeal of the people of Jerusalem and Judea as they anticipate the end of seventy years of exile in Babylon. Their sufferings and their oppression will end, and they are promised joy like that of a great wedding upon returning to their homeland. Although this passage is probably set in the early sixth century B.C., it is free of historical particulars. Accordingly, the Church has understood its imagery universally, as it proclaims God’s promise of healing, hope, and happiness for all peoples, in this world and in the next. When read against this background, the story of Jesus’ turning water into wine at the wedding at Cana becomes a revelation of God’s presence in the person of Jesus, making these promises real for us in the here and now, in the transformation of our own lives.
