Dear Members of the Syro Malabar Community Vienna:

Prayerful Greetings to each one of you. I hope you are all healthy and strong. I would like to bring to your attention the following plan of the Liturgy of the Syro Malabar Community Vienna, after 15th May, 2020 as per the directives and guidelines of the Archdiocese of Vienna.


In spite of the present restrictions of the gatherings in our Churches, we would like to offer to the members of the Syro Malabar Community in Vienna, as many as possible occasions for the Holy Mass on Saturdays and Sundays. However the number of persons  who are allowed to be gathered in Maria Lourdes is  a maximum of 60 and in Saikogasse 8 Auferstehung Christi  only 50. The authorities have told us to make a list of the participants of each of these Holy Masses, in order to avoid unnecessary  rush and confusion in the premises of the Church. The following is the concrete Plan of the SMC Holy Mass in our given centers:


In Maria Lourdes: On Saturdays, Vorabendmesse SMC Qurbana at 19.30 hrs;

                              On Sundays SMC Qurbana at 12. 00 noon and SMC Qurbana at 19. 00hrs.

                              The Qurbana at 12.00hrs on Sundays in Maria Lourdes will be exclusively for the Catechism Children from Class 7 to 12 and for the Catechism Teachers of the Unit of Maria Lourdes, and for the Youth as per the availability of seats in the Church. There will not be catechism classes.

There will not be Mass on week days including Saturday morning in Maria Lourdes till the end of this academic year.


In Saikogasse : On Saturdays, SMC Qurbana at 8.00 am;

                            On Sundays, SMC Qurbana at 17.00hrs.  

                           There will not be catechism classes in Saikogasse 8 till the end of this academic year.


The Churches at Maria Lourdes and at Saikogasse 8 will be opened only half an hour before the beginning of the Holy Mass there. After the Qurbana the used seats and places in the Churches must be disinfected. That will be arranged by the SMC Mesners in both Maria Lourdes and in Saikogasse 8.


All the participants of the Holy Mass in the Churches must wear a Mask from the beginning to the end of their stay in the Church.


The Holy Masses on Saturdays and Sundays can be offered for the intention of anybody who wants to do so; however the intention and name of any person will not be announced at the beginning of the Qurbana, especially on Sundays and at the Vorabendmesse.


Those who want to attend only 55 participants -  the Holy Mass in Maria Lourdes either on Saturday at 19.30hrs or on Sunday at 19. 00hrs may inform P. Thomas Thandappilly CST.


Those who want to attend only 45 participants -  the Holy Mass in Saikogasse 8  either on Saturday at 8.00 hrs  or on Sunday at 17. 00hrs may inform P. Wilson Mecheril MCBS.


This registration can   be done either by What`s up or by SMS, in any case before 18.00hrs  on 15th May  2020.  P. Thomas CST: 06991 19 66 771;   P. Wilson MCBS: 004 367 65 323704.


Only one or two members from each SMC Family may register for the Holy Mass at a particular time.

Preferably one person from each family.
