Booking of Masses: April 2022

Based on the latest Government announcements, Mass Booking System will be adjusted to encourage more parishioners to come back to church for Mass. Seating capacity for all weekend Masses will be increased to 450. 

Beginning 1 April 2022:


Weekday Mass Bookings will be removed from the system. Churchgoers may attend Weekday Masses at ANY church. To ensure that the venue capacity limit is not breached, Mass attendees will be required to scan in their IDs on arrival so that their presence can be counted.

Masses for all important Feast days, Solemnity and Days of Obligation that fall on a WEEKDAY will require prior bookings as per weekend Masses. Announcements will be made ahead of time to inform the faithful when such special Mass Bookings are required.

For the Month of April, these weekday services will need Mass Bookings:
i. Holy Thursday – 14 April
ii. Good Friday – 15 April

Only one booking is allowed per person for these services, either at one’s registered church or at another church. Bookings made at a church other than one’s registered parish will only be available 3 days ahead of the Mass day.


The cap for Weekend Mass Bookings will be increased from 1 to 2 per booking session. This is regardless of whether booking is made at your registered parish or at another church.

With the increase in the Weekend Mass booking quota, there will only be 2 Booking Days for the month.

  • The first Booking Day will have a quota for 3 Weekend Masses.
    1 Mass for Holy Thursday (excluding Chrism Mass), 1 Service for Good Friday
  • The second Booking Day will be for 2 weekend in that month and 1 Chrism Mass (on a separate Tab)


All parishioners who wish to attend the Chrism Mass may book in the tab marked “Chrism Mass” in Chrism Mass will be held at the Church of the Holy Family on 14 April 2022, 10am. Booking for Chrism Mass will commence from 5 April 2022, 9am onwards on a first-come-first-served basis.

This will be made available on the following dates:

Date & time for booking Timeframe of Masses
1. 29 March (Tuesday) First booking for Weekend Masses in April PLUS Holy Thursday and Good Friday.

  2. Allocation of Mass seats will be on a first-come-first-served basis, regardless of age.
  3. For Vaccinated-only Masses, proof of vaccination status will be checked upon entry.
  4. The seating capacity of churches will not be changed once the Booking cycle has begun unless the change is mandated by the Government’s Regulations.
  5. Those who have recovered from COVID-19 up to 180 days from the first positive Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test result obtained – will be permitted to book Vaccinated-only Masses.
  6. Persons who are medically certified as being ineligible for vaccination, and whose ineligible status is reflected in their TraceTogether or HealthHub records, will also be permitted to book the Vaccinated-only Masses.

Additionally, we would like to highlight that:

Mass booking priority will be given to registered parishioners of the respective churches. As such only registered parishioners will be able to view all Masses for the month. Booking days will prioritise parishioners to book for any day’s Masses in the month Non-registered parishioners wishing to book a Mass at a church outside his/her registered parish will only see a 3-day Mass schedule.

However, registered parishioners of these churches will be allowed to book for Masses at other parishes, subject to the 3-day advance booking Policy.
