Saint Anthony of Padua Church Opening


Dear parishioners,

We can give you the good news now: our church will be opening for private prayers from Monday, the 15th of June.

The opening times are the following:

Monday to Saturday 9.00 am to 10 am.

Sunday 9.30 am – 11.00 am.

There are strict rules that the Government and the Archdiocese ask us and our parishioners to follow, in order to protect everybody in these difficult times.

We will appreciate your compliance to these rules and for your cooperation at the entrance in the church, during your prayers and when leaving the Church.

What to expect in this phase at coming to Church:

  • The entrance is allowed from the left hand side of the Church, and the exit is at the right hand side of the Church (the school’s side).
  • There are arrows on the floor to guide you through the one way system in the Church.
  • There are two hand sanitising stations: one at the entrance and one at the way out of Church. Parishioners are asked to use them both times.
  • The sitting spaces are distanced at 2 meters apart. Parishioners are asked to sit only in the allocated sitting spaces.
  • Children under 16 years are allowed in Church only accompanied by an adult.
  • Children should stay with their parents at all times.
  • Group prayers are not allowed in this stage.
  • Statues are cordoned off, as they are not to be touched.
  • Parishioners are not allowed to go in the sacristy.
  • There will not be toilet facilities at these times, because the toilets have to stay closed.
  • There will be two stewards in the Church, to guide you and to assure the social distancing rules are kept at all times. If the number of people in the Church reached the full capacity, the steward will ask you to wait, until one leaves the Church.
  • The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed each day.
  • Please, be silent in Church and turn off the sound of your phone.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

May God bless you and keep you and your families safe.
