|IMPORTANT NOTICES (updated 14 September 2021)|
|SYDNEY COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS: The Greater Sydney lockdown will only be lifted when 70% of adults have received their second vaccination – probably towards the end of October. All churches in the Sydney region remain closed until the lockdown is lifted. |
Therefore, no Sunday or weekday Masses can be celebrated; all other celebrations, such as Baptisms, remain suspended. No bookings can be taken for Baptisms until the current restrictions are lifted.
FUNERALS: Funerals are permitted with ten people present.
WEDDINGS: Weddings are possible (from 3 September) with only five guests present. That number does not include the celebrant, the bride and groom and two witnesses. Others can also be involved, such as a photographer, a singer and an organist – more details are still to be released. The normal Government and Church requirements for notice still apply.
LIVE STREAMING: The regulations do allow for a Mass to be live-streamed. The 9.30 am Sunday Mass each week is being live streamed to the parish YouTube channel:
It is also possible to view the Mass on Facebook at St Mary’s Parish Church Concord.
The Mass can also be viewed later on both platforms.
