Dear Beloved Parishioners,
We would like to share that 1 of the parish staff came to church on 9 Oct 2021 has been identified as COVID-19 ART positive case. The infected staff was symptomatic during work in the morning and is now awaiting PCR result.
We are currently working with the relevant government agencies to identify all who were exposed to the infected person.
Deep cleansing of the priest house and office will be carried out by Monday, 11 Oct to ensure that our church remains safe for all to worship in.
Here is the chronology of events associated with the incident:
1. 9 Oct 2021 – The infected staff was at work in the morning.
2. 9 Oct 2021 – The infected staff was tested positive to the Covid-19 virus using ART in the afternoon and was isolated.
I wish to assure you that all necessary steps are being taken to ensure that our church remains a safe place for worship. As a precautionary measure, if you had attended Mass at our church on the said date, please monitor your own health and seek immediate medical attention if needed.
As a further precaution, we, the priests will have to self-isolate and the office and priest house will be temporarily closed until further notice.
All Mass services during this period will be suspended until further notice. I do apologize for this inconvenience caused.
Please avail yourselves of the daily online Mass broadcasts offered by the Archdiocese (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpuK6UWDiy8).
I seek your patience and cooperation in observing all safety measures in place so that we can continue to keep our church and each other safe.
Let us pray for our brothers and sisters currently under quarantine and for the Lord to protect and heal us.
