DEAR PARISHIONERS,

Fraternal Greetings to you.

Archbishop Buti Thlagale, on 17th Sept 2020 sent out a Pastoral letter addressed to all the Catholics of the Archdiocese of Johannesburg instructing that Parishes be opened on the weekend of the 27th Sept 2020, for the Public Celebration of Holy Mass.

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) of Maryvale Catholic Church met to decide how best to implement the Archbishops latest recommendations. These are the PPC’s decisions concerning:
