Dubai church to launch online appointment system for worshippers


A parish priest based in St. Mary’s Church in Dubai revealed that an online appointment system will be launched soon for worshippers as part of its measure to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus disease once the government allowed them to operate. 

In an interview with Father Chito Bartolo at the Filipino Institute’s Kamusta Ka Friend segment yesterday with Orli and JC, he said that an app will be launched soon for people who want to visit the church in Oud Metha.

Among the new rules are mandatory masks for everyone and social distancing of two metres at all times. 

The Filipino priest also revealed that once the church in Dubai has reopened, a 30 percent capacity will be imposed as well. 

He added that they are still waiting for the application to reopen the sacred place to be approved by the Dubai authorities. 

Father Chito is holding a series of online masses on SMCPFilipino Facebook page on the following dates:
