Gradual Resumption of Masses

Greetings of grace and peace dear Brothers and Sisters-in-Christ. 

The Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore has been working very closely with government authorities throughout this COVID-19 situation. After the announcement of Phase 2 of the reopening of the country, we understand the buildup of excitement from our fellow Catholics who yearn to once again receive the Sacraments. We are working tirelessly with the authorities in preparing our churches on the ground for the gradual resumption of Masses and other religious activities. However even as we wait in great anticipation to return to worship as a community, we must take every measure possible to ensure that our families and communities are safe.

Our churches will progressively open throughout July. Keep an eye out for your church to give instructions on when Mass resumes A decision has been reached by the Archbishop in consultation with the Presbyterium to limit Catholics to one registered church from phase 2 onwards. Within our large Catholic population, many of the faithful move from church to church. This church ‘hopping’ presents a risk of spreading COVID-19 across multiple churches.

To ensure that the Catholic Church in Singapore does her best to (1) keep everyone safe and (2) to have a fair system for the allocation for Masses, the Mass Attendance Registration System (MARS) has been developed within a new portal,
