Important information on how COVID-19 will affect Sunday Masses at Mary Immaculate

With the new national restrictions for indoor gatherings now limited to only 100 people, all future Sunday masses will now be held outdoors in the Jeanne Pestana Passive Play Area until further notice.
Parishioners who attend are encouraged to sit at a safe distance from one another.
Everyone is reminded that we must:
Restrain from holding hands during the Our Father;

NOT shake hands at the Sign of Peace
Only receive Communion (HOST ONLY) on the HAND, NOT tongue, to avoid any chance of contracting or passing on the virus. (NO PRECIOUS BLOOD)
NOT attend any mass if you have been overseas in the past 14 days.

Sanitize our hands before we attend masses.
Limited seating will be provided for the elderly. However, if you are over 65 and have any medical condition, you are encouraged to stay at home as a precautionary action. Live telecasts of Sunday masses are available online. Such sites include:
Watch the Livestream of the 10:30am Sunday Mass from St. Mary’s Cathedral on https://www.stmaryscathedral.org.au/ OR

Please note: To help protect all parishioners, masses will be run using a limited number of ministers including no altar servers. There will be no Children’s Liturgy of the Word, no Offertory procession, no live music, no data projector and no hospitality table after mass.
These measures may seem extreme, but ultimately, by complying with the nation’s guidelines, we are ensuring your safety, the safety of our priest and parish community.
Thank you for your understanding.
