Sunday 31st May, 2020
As of today, Sunday 31st May we are 99% sure that next Sunday our two morning Masses will be held at St Paul’s College Chapel, 181 Richmond Rd, Ponsonby. The floor of the chapel was undergoing varnishing and is supposed to be ready by next weekend. We should know this for sure early next week and will post an update on our website.
Due to government requirements for spacing and numbers, and the size of our two chapels, the offer of using St Paul’s Chapel (which seats 250) is too good to refuse. For this reason, we will be using St Paul’s for all of the Sundays in June for the 8am Low Mass and 10am Sung Mass. The 5pm Masses will be at Mount St Mary’s Chapel except for the 4th Sunday which will be in The Holy Name of Mary in Hikurangi.
Important points about St Paul’s College Chapel ;
Parking for the elderly or infirm is at 181 Richmond Rd, and should be up to 10 cars immediately outside the chapel doors. There is a lot of parking on the outdoor school basketball courts, the entrance of which is at the end of Moira St. To get to Moira St, you need to turn into Mokau St, 300m down the hill from St Paul’s, then right onto Moira St.
- There are confessionals at St Paul’s and we will be utilising them.
- There is also a cry room for babies
- There is a large choir loft also
