For God shows no favouritism (Romans 2:11)

WITH REGARDS TO THE NEXT TWO WEEKS …  11 October to 25 October … as the covid-19 pandemic and the so-called “road to recovery” continues to unfold so do the conditions by which we, as a Parish, are able to operate under the NSW Public Health Orders, which includes Places of Worship only being able to open for fully-vaccinated worshippers.

After reflection, a decision has been made by Fr Anthony that, as we cannot welcome everyone during this two-week period, we WILL CLOSE FOR ALL MASSES and activities in the Sacred Heart Church until we can welcome everyone back together as one. This will be for a short period of two weeks until Monday 25 October when we can open our doors for everyone.

The Sacramental Program for our children due to make their Confirmation in November will continue.  A separate email will be sent to all families involved in the program by our Pastoral Associate Barbara Grant later this week.

We will look forward to re-opening for Masses from 25 October, noting that there will still be restrictions in place for checking-in, face masks and social distancing.

As Fr Anthony is on leave during this two-week period we will not be livestreaming Masses from Sacred Heart Church.  We recommend Bishop Greg’s Sunday Mass on YouTube.  Parish Bulletins will be emailed out and some printed copies will be available outside the Parish Office front door from 2 pm on Friday.

If anyone has any queries or concerns about this two-week closure, please contact the Parish Office.

Options for your weekend Mass at Home

Until we can worship together again, please take care and be kind to everyone.
