In this church, may everyone be accepted for who and what they are and be at peace.
Here, may everyone rest and find serenity. May the visitor find a warm welcome, confident in Christ's love.
May we all find the joy of living with other people and, with the help of God, may we look to the future without fear.
COVID CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENT FOR MASS ATTENDANCE
To avoid confusion we will no longer ask you to sign up for Mass on non-Catechism Sundays. Instead, at all Sunday Masses we will scan Covid Certificates together with a photo ID at the entrance to the chapel. Please have these ready. With the flu season approaching, we ask that you continue to wear masks, to use the hand sanitiser at the chapel entrance and to disinfect your bench at the end of Mass with the disinfectant wipes that are available.
If you've recently returned from abroad, please only come to Mass if you have a negative Covid test.
We are asked not to answer 'Amen' when receiving Holy Communion. Instead there will be a communal 'The Body of Christ' and 'Amen' before everyone processes to the altar to receive the sacrament.
ONLINE 10.30AM MASS
As always, a recording will be available on www.youtube.com an hour or so after the Zoom Mass. Look for Our Lady of Faith Lausanne and then select the date. Please also switch off your microphones and cameras once Mass has commenced.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
Fr Steve is available at any time for those who wish to go to the sacrament of Reconciliation, or for anyone who may wish to discuss any spiritual issue they are experiencing. Email: email@example.com.
If you have not registered with us please do so via the Online Mission Registration form - link in About Us section - so that we can keep you updated with Covid and Mission news.
