WELCOME

The Holy Spirit Parish pays respect to the Darug People, the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather to celebrate our faith and worship God. We acknowledge with respect the elders past and present.

COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES COMMENCING 29 MARCH 2021

With the announcement of the easing of restrictions commencing Monday 29th March 2021, we are now limited by the 2 square metre rule. Hence, we can now accommodate 350 people in the church.

The wearing of face mask is encouraged if social distancing is not possible. Congregational singing is now permitted. Support 1.5m social distancing where possible.

 


CONTACT TRACING:

Because NSW Government still requires contact tracing, there are two ways to do this: 

• Sign-in using the QR Code displayed near the entrance doors.
• Mass Attendance cards MUST be completed by each household per mass. Cards are available in the foyer.


In order to maximise the use of our liturgical space, please observe the following:
• Families and those living under one household sit together.
• Proceed to end of row if vacant.
• Support social distancing from one household to another where possible.


 

The elderly, those with health conditions, flu-like symptoms and low-immune system are still advised to stay at home. Catholics from Parramatta Diocese are still dispensed from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice.

The decision to marry is one of the most significant decisions in life. Since it effects both State and Church there are certain requirements to be fulfilled:

Before the church can be booked couples will be required to complete the following:

  • Once you have chosen a date, please contact the parish to organise a meeting with the priest of your choice. At the time of this meeting the following will be addressed
  • The date/time/availability of the church and priest
  • The booking of the church. If you are not a parishioner of Holy Spirit the suggested booking fee is $150
  • Alternatively, the requirements of presiding over your wedding ceremony at another church or outside a sacred space.
  • Pre Marriage Course

It is a requirement that all couples intending to marry, participate in this preparation course. Please contact the:

Life, Marriage & Family Office on 02 8838 3440 or https://parralmf.org.au/pre-marriage-preparation/

for course dates and venues. This should be done at least six - eight months prior to the wedding.

  • PRENUPTIAL ENQUIRY FORM & NOTICE OF INTENDED MARRIAGE

It is essential to make an appointment with a priest to do this as soon as possible – after completing the Pre Marriage course and at least six months before the date of the wedding.

Both parties will need to bring the following documents to their second appointment with the priest.

  1. A full Birth Certificate or passport and drivers licence
  2. Groom
  3. Bride  

(Available from the Registrar of Births deaths and marriages if you do not have one)

  1. A Baptismal certificate issued within the last 6 months.
  2. Groom
  3. Bride  

(This can be obtained by contacting the parish where you were baptised.  Details of your Confirmation are usually recorded on your Baptism Certificate)

  1. If either party has been married previously, evidence of freedom to remarry will be needed.

(i.e. death certificate of former spouse, annulment certificate etc.)

At the time of your second appointment with the priest the following will be addressed:

  1. Booking the church
  2. Completion of the State required Notice of Intended Marriage.  (Form 13)
  3. Evidence of completion of the engaged couple’s course.
  4. Discussion about the importance of marriage and commitment
  5. Relevant information to assist in planning the liturgy.
  6. Weddings held in other churches or outside sacred spaces.
