To comply with the Covid-19 contact tracing requirements, we require individual names on each ticket, therefore, TICKETS NEED TO BE BOOKED ONE AT A TIME - even if you are part of the same family.
An email will be sent to you with your ticket. Print this ticket out, or if you have mobile phone email, bring it along with you to use at check-in.
We will scan the ticket or image at check-in in the Narthex entrance, and you may then proceed into the Basilica.
If you forget your ticket, we will not turn you away and can check you in manually, but you still need to book.
We will be admitting people via the front doors of the Basilica, and we ask that you observe the 1.5m social distancing at all times. Sanitize and wear masks.
Please arrive early (20-30mins if possible) to ensure a seamless check-in. The doors will be closed at the “Liturgy of the Word” to allow our volunteers and helpers to also attend Mass.
We ask that whilst in the Basilica you please wear a Face Mask.
Communion will only be distributed on the hand, NOT by mouth.
