Notice of Church closure

As you already know on March 17, a piece of the Church’s ceiling fell down. As a result both aisles were closed and we had a specialized contractor make inspections as we prepared for a large scale repair works. During the inspection, new areas of potential danger were discovered.

After discussions between the Parish Council and the Parish Main Priest it has been decided for the safety of all to close the whole Church, even before the start of actual repairs.

Date of closing: 2019, July 20 in the afternoon.
Estimated date of repair works start:end of July, Completion : July 2020
During the Church closure, Masses will be celebrated in the Basement Hall or in the Rectory.

During that period it is expected that Sunday Masses will be overcrowded. It is recommended to make use of the anticipated Saturday Mass or using other Churches of the Diocese with foreign Masses (See list and schedule below).
