Diocese of Parramatta update on the coronavirus

22 June 2021


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, 

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

NSW Health has revised the COVID-19 guidelines for face mask use at indoor venues which also includes places of worship. 

Effective immediately, Tuesday 22 June 2021, face masks will be made mandatory at all indoor venues (including places of worship) for the next seven days across Greater Sydney and the Blue Mountains. 

COVID-19 Safety Plan

As a gentle reminder, Parishes will need to continue to comply with their COVID-19 Safety Plans, including record keeping (name and contact details) requirements for contact tracing purposes. 

There has been no change to the number of people allowed at places of worship and religious services. The maximum number of people will continue to be limited by the 2 square metre rule. 

With my prayers during these times, 

Very Rev Peter G. Williams 

Vicar General & Moderator of the Curia
