|IMPORTANT NOTICES (updated 24 July 2021)|
|SYDNEY COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS: The Greater Sydney Lockdown began on Sat 26 June. All churches in the Sydney region remain closed until the lockdown is lifted. Therefore, no Sunday or weekday Masses can be celebrated. While Funerals are currently permitted with ten people present, all other celebrations such as Baptisms and Weddings remain suspended. |
The regulations do allow for Mass to be live-streamed. Therefore the 9.30 am Mass on Sunday 25 July will be live-streamed as usual. Please join us on the parish Facebook – St Marys Parish Church Concord or on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLOawxfUmJ6XjHJZcqsR2_A
1st HOLY COMMUNION: The second Parent Information Meeting that was planned for Tuesday 27 July has been cancelled. At this time we are still hoping that the current Public Health restrictions will be lifted in August. Please note that the future remains uncertain. A decision will be made about the 1st Holy Communion Masses once the lockdown is lifted and any ongoing restrictions are made known.
When restrictions are lifted, it will be possible for families to celebrate 1st Holy Communion at any of the normal parish Sunday Masses. The final number who can participate will depend on the particular Mass that the family nominates. For more information go to the Sacraments tab and look under Holy Communion.
MASS AT ST MARY’S CONCORD: All Masses are currently suspended.
LIVE STREAMING: The 9.30 am Sunday Mass each week is being live streamed to the parish YouTube channel:
