New parish directives as a result of coronavirus (COVID–19). Click here for more details.


Lumen Christi COVID MaskFollowing the extension to the lockdown for Greater Sydney to Saturday 28 August 2021, the following changes are in force by the Public Health Order and amendments:

For parishes in the Macarthur, Wollongong and Shellharbour Local Government Areas, the following apply:

Churches are closed except for funerals:

  • A funeral may take place at which there are no more than 100 persons (this number will be reduced to 10 persons as from Sunday 11 July 2021), including the person conducting the service (the 4 square metre rule still applies)
  • Facemasks are compulsory for mourners.

Livestream Masses can be held:

  • People directly involved in the service itself and the operation of the recording equipment may be present for the service.

Please continue to remain vigilant to any rapid developments to ensure the safety of the community. We will also do our best to advise of further changes as they arise. For those unable to attend Mass this weekend, including those in lockdown in the Macarthur, Illawarra and Shellharbour regions of our diocese, you can make an act of spiritual Communion while watching our livestream Masses, Tuesday to Friday 12.10pm and Sundays 10.30am.
