UPDATED DIRECTIVES (2 JANUARY 2021)
FROM NSW GOVERNMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
 

Dear Parishioners and Visitors of Lumen Christi Catholic Parishes

Happy Epiphany!

Unfortunately, the rest is not so happy, but we can cope with it.

Earlier today, the NSW Government announced that we are back to allowing no more than 100 people in a place of worship for each Mass, Wedding or Funeral. The maximum number allowed is determined by the 4sqm rule.

The numbers permitted in our churches are as follows:

St Francis Xavier Cathedral:

90 attendees

St John Vianney Co-Cathedral:

100 attendees

Mater Dolorosa Church:

70 attendees

St Brigid’s Church:

60 attendees

Please carefully note that face masks are now mandatory for those attending religious services in places of worship. The NSW Government has stated that compliance will be enforced from Monday, 4 January 2021. Government inspectors have the power to give $200 on the spot fines for individuals who are not wearing a mask. Children under 12 are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable.

Parishioners and visitors will need to bring their own masks.

Thank you for your patience and may God bless and keep you all in his peace.

Very Rev Bernard L Gordon
VICAR GENERAL & ADMINISTRATOR
