Siparia couples celebrate feast of Sts Anne and Joachim…the physical distancing edition

The Feast day of Sts Anne and Joachim was celebrated physical-distancing style at La Divina Pastora RC Church, Siparia on Sunday, July 26.

Parishioners registered in advance to attend this special Mass that began at 8.30 a.m. The usual COVID-19 measures were in effect: temperature scanners at the main entrance, hand sanitising and the wearing of masks being mandatory.

Families made a greater effort to attend Mass and were seated together. In some instances, one family shared three consecutive benches. Benches were skipped between different families to maintain physical distancing protocols. Bottles of santisers were placed strategically throughout the church to be used by persons removing masks to perform specific duties.
