ST.THOMAS CHURCH, GOREGAON (EAST)
ANNOUNCEMENTS

1. After consulting the Police Commissioner, Cardinal Oswald has suggested the following preliminary steps to beef up the security in our Churches :

  • The Ushers double up as ‘Greeters’ so as to confirm the credibility of those who have come to pray in Church.
  • We should restrict the number of entry gates to the Church.
  • Vehicles need to be parked a sizeable distance away from the Church.
  • People should be discouraged from bringing backpacks or luggage bags to Church.
  • Bags should not be left unattended at any time in Church or on the premises.
  • Report any suspicious individuals or unattended bags to the nearest usher for further action.
  • The Church will be kept open only for liturgical worship.
  • Please note that the measures proposed are precautionary in nature and do not relate to any actual threats. There should not be any reason to panic or to avoid attending Masses or services.
