Notice to Members of the Catholic Chinese Community of Melbourne
With the renewal of the contract for our chaplain and due to some internal transfer of priests of the Divine Word Missionaries, we were informed by the Provincial of SVD, Rev. Fr. Rass Asaeli, SVD, that Fr. Nato Aloysius will be transferred to Sacred Heart Parish, Preston, on 4th May, 2020. And Fr. James Areechira, SVD, is appointed as our new full time chaplain.
Because of the current situation of the COVID-19, public gatherings of more than two people are banned. Therefore, the EXCO has planned to have a teleconference with Fr. Nato using ZOOM which allows 100 devices such as desktops, iPads, smartphones, etc., to join the meeting simultaneously. It is a chance for members to have an open chat with Fr. Nato and EXCO, especially about his transfer.
Date and Time of the ZOOM meeting: 7th April, 2020, 08:30PM.
Meeting ID: 884 377 930
As regards the gathering to farewell Fr. Nato and welcome Fr. Areechira, it will not be organized until the ban on public gatherings to be lifted up by the Australian Government.
Let us continue to pray for the end of the present crisis.
From the Executive Committee of the Catholic Chinese Community of Melbourne
團體在更新神師合約的過程中， 聖言會澳洲省會長Fr. Rass ASERALI通知我們聖言會內神長們人事上有所調動。故此，杜一諾神父將會在５月４日被調派到位於Preston的Sacred Heart Church就任。而田雅超神父將會被委派成為我們團體的全職神師。
由於政府現時對新冠病毒實行的禁制令，凡是多於兩個人的公眾集會都屬違法。故此，團體已經設置了一個網上的視像平台 ZOOM以方便大家與神師的溝通。這視像平台可以容納最多100位與會者透過智能手機、平板電腦或桌面電腦同時進行會議。團體已經安排於４月７日 晚上8時30分舉行一次網上聚會，以方便各位教友與杜神父及委員會傾談。該視像會議的登入詳情已在上文列明。
