What is a QR code and are they safe? | KasperskyParish QR Code 

Anyone attending Church services at St Bernadette’s Parish will be required to register their attendance using the Victorian Government QR Code.   You will need to download the Service Victoria App provided by the Victoria State Government.



This is the process required:

2. Click on 'Contact tracing check-in'

3. Scan the QR code

4. Enter your details

5. Submit

This process needs to be completed for each person over the age of one that is attending the Church service.

There will be Welcomers in the foyer of the Church before each Mass to help anyone who is unable to or has difficulty with this process.  

Please remember that these processes are put in place by the Government so that everyone is kept safe. Contact tracing is so important if any cases of COVID are detected within our community. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

Scripture Reflection

Our Scripture reflection sessions continue every Thurday at 7pm and it is a great way to connect with Parishioners during our lockdowns.  It has been great to see some new faces over the past few weeks.   These sessions are held using the ZOOM video platform so you do not need to leave the comfort of your own home to attend.

If you would like to attend these sessions, send Amanda an email to brownieab75@gmail.com  and she will send you the ZOOM link weekly.

We would love to see many more faces at our meetings!!
