The national guidelines now apply so Christmas masses will be as planned. There can be 50 people in St. Paul church & 35 at Marias Minde. Registration is electronic. See the parish website: firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions. At some masses the crypt will be open for up to 30 people.
The income from church collection has reduced by more than half whilst the church has been closed. At the same time it has not been possible to reduce expenses very much. We hope that parishioners will send a Christmas VIPPS, either large or small, (eg kr.300) to the parish. The VIPPS number is 111576.
The closing date for applications to enter St. Eystein seminary next year is 31st January. Applications can be sent to the principal father Tao Nguyen. For more information contact the parish office.
St Olav magazine, the diocesan magazine, is sent in the post to those who subscribe to it. Subscription is free. We hope that more members of our parish will subscribe. In the last issue, 3/2020, there was an interview with our parish priest & lots of other material from our parish & elsewhere. A test example of no: 3/2020 is available from the parish office & at the back of the church. You can subscribe by sending an SMS to no. 96943490 with code word STOLAV followed by your name & address.
Anyone who is not registered in the parish is invited to do so before the end of the year. Registration forms are available at the back of the church & should be handed in to either the parish office or the sacristy after mass.
