After Mass

Each mass will be limited to 50 congregants. More mass times (Sunday 7am, Saturday Sunset, Weekdays) will be made available progressively, depending on the COVID-19 situation.

To ensure that the Catholic Church in Singapore does her best to keep everyone safe and to have a fair system for the allocation for Masses, the Archdiocese has released a Mass Attendance Registration System (MARS) to register for Mass.

There are two important steps:

(1) Signup

Sign up individually at https://mycatholic.sg/register and register yourself with the Church of the Risen Christ. To prevent cross-infection among churches, you can only register with one church and only attend mass at the selected Church. Therefore, please select carefully as no changes are allowed. Sign up at least 72 hrs before booking starts.

(2) Book Mass Slot

From Tuesday, 14 July 2020 12pm, login at https://mycatholic.sg and book your Mass slot You can only book one Mass per month for the interim. Therefore, please select carefully as no changes are allowed. Mass slots will remain available till they have been taken up or when the booking time is up. The cut-off time is 48 hrs before that particular Mass starts.

You may refer to the user guide at https://mycatholic.sg/help and FAQ at https://mycatholic.sg/faq

Keeping Our Parishioners Safe

As congregants are together in an enclosed space for a significant period of time, the Church encourages those who are vulnerable (ie. very young children, senior citizens above 60 years of age and those with pre-existing medical conditions) to continue attending Mass online instead.

Keeping the ‘Day of the Lord' holy

Catholics are dispensed from the obligation of attending Mass at this time. However, we are reminded to keep the 'Day of the Lord' holy by following the broadcast of the Mass, gathering as a family for the Liturgy of the Word or spending an appropriate time in prayer.

Getting Ready to Welcome You Back

Fr Edward Lim, the Risen Christ's COVID-19 task force, Safe Management Officers (SMOs) & volunteers have been getting ready to welcome you back to celebrate the Mass. Over the past weeks, we have been liaising with the Archdiocesan COVID-19 Task Force and discussed within our Risen Christ’s teams about our roles and responsibilities, entry & exit routes, temperature taking, use of MARS system, scanning of QR codes, and even the use of the toilets. All working together for the common good of our parishioners. Do follow our Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/risenchrist.sg and our website @ www.risenchrist.org.sg for the latest updates.

We ask for your prayers, as we pray for you. 🙏🏻
