Diocese of Parramatta update on the coronavirus

15 December 2021


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

On 20 March 2020, Catholics from the Diocese of Parramatta were dispensed from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice (Canon 1248 §2 and Catechism 2181) by virtue of a Decree issued by Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv. 

From 15 December 2021, this Decree is now revoked and the Sunday obligation is now imposed once again given that public health orders no longer require adherence to density limits in our church buildings 

Yours sincerely in Christ, 

Very Rev Peter G. Williams
Vicar General & Moderator of the Curia
