Yes you can. But for tagalog and/or english masses, you need to do a one-time online or written form registration.

You may register in three (3) ways.

  • 1. Thru an online registration using facebook messenger. Click this link to register --> https://bit.ly/kcfcmassreg
  • 2. Thru an online registration using google form. Click this link to register --> https://bit.ly/KCFCRGF2020
  • 3. Thru writing on a paper. At the church's reception, ask the receptionist that you'd like to register thru a written form.
  • NOTE 1: We recommend you to register thru either No. 1 or 2.
  • NOTE 2: If you registered thru google form or in writing, must correctly provide an email address.
  • NOTE 3: In less than a week before the next mass, we will send you thru email or FB messenger your QR code, group number(s) and specific mass time schedule.

Yes, but only thru google form. Also, you must provide a correct and active email address of the person you are registering.

No, you can't. After the registration, we will send you your mass time schedules for a specific period. Please follow your given mass time schedule.

The QR Code we sent you serves as your entrance ticket to attend the tagalog or english masses in Koiwa Catholic Church. Show this QR Code to the receptionist for scanning. Upon scanning, we will be able to record your complete name and the time you entered the church.

Here's an example of a QR Code.

Before the pandemic, 60 to 100 people usually attends our tagalog or english mass. And we only have one (1) celebration every 2nd or 4th sunday.

During the pandemic, the Tokyo Archdiocese requires every church to implement a social distancing inside the church when celebrating a mass which results to a limited number of people that can enter the church at the same time. In order for us to accommodate more or less the same number of attendees, we decided to celebrate 2 tagalog and 2 english masses. But adding 1 more mass is not the complete solution because more people are used to attend the 1:30pm mass which may result to overcrowed this time. To completely solve this issue, we decided to assign a group number (1 or 2) to all registrants and each group will have an alternating mass time schedule. For instance, group-1 will attend the 1:30pm mass this month and 3:30pm on the following month; repeats the cycle every 2-months.

After a couple of days upon registration, we will send you a message thru FB messenger or an email with your QR Code, mass time schedule and informing you of your group number for tagalog and/or english.

Also, at the lower-right part of your QR Code, we added a code which indicates your group number for tagalog and/or english mass; T1 - Group 1 for Tagalog Mass; T2 - Group 2 for Tagalog Mass; E1 - Group 1 for English Mass; E2 - Group 2 for English Mass.

Here's an example:
