Diocese of Parramatta update on the coronavirus

1 June 2020


Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

On 30 May 2020, NSW Health issued a safety plan for places of worship and subsequently, updated guidelines for attending public Mass and other religious services. Parishes are required to record the contact details of all people attending any form of public worship.

Up to 50 people can attend funerals, baptisms, and religious services. Up to 20 people can attend weddings.

As we cannot fully accommodate everyone who would want to attend Mass the dispensation from Sunday obligation still obtains.

As a reminder, live streamed Masses from across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains are available on the Diocesan website at parracatholic.org/covid19.

Yours sincerely in Christ,

Very Rev Peter G. Williams

Vicar General & Moderator of the Curia
