|IMPORTANT NOTICES (updated 14 May 2021)|
|MASS AT ST MARY’S CONCORD: |
There is no need to book for our Sunday Masses and all are welcome to attend.
The current NSW Government restriction remain in place until Monday 17 May. Masks are required to be worn by those attending a service in a church. Therefore please wear a mask if you are coming to Mass this weekend.
COVID 19: The latest Government changes have not removed all the restrictions for places of worship. When the Government notice says there is “no limit” for places of worship, it is referring to the lifting of the previous limit of 100. All churches are still limited by the “2 sq m Rule”. Under that rule the capacity of St Mary’s Church is 350.
Those who attend are required to practise social distancing. That means keeping 1.5 m from those who are not part of your household.
It is still compulsory for all who enter a church to use the QR Code or to record their name and contact number on the clipboards provided. To use the QR Code you first need to download the Services NSW App.
If you are unwell, please do not come to the church. Any parishioners in a high-risk category are encouraged to stay home.
RECONCILIATION (CONFESSION): Individual Reconciliation is available at St Mary’s Concord on Saturdays from 5.00 to 5.30 pm.
CONFIRMATION: There are two celebrations: 3.00 pm on Saturday 15 May and 11.00 am on Sunday 16 May. Only those registered may attend.
