Monday 23 March- 

Archbishops letter can be downloaded see attached file below.

The key points that will impact us are:

Suspension of all public Masses and communal devotions from 12noon (23 March)

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that following the new commonwealth and state restrictions on public places, all public Masses and other communal devotions, whether inside churches or outdoors, are suspended in the Archdiocese from Sydney from 12noon until further notice. From now on our focus must be on helping people find ways to pray and nurture their faith from home. ...

Closure of churches
Clarification has been received from the government that, in New South Wales at least, all churches must be closed, even to private prayer.
