The past seven weeks have been some of the most extraordinary in the experience of the Church in Australia. Since 19 March, we have not been able to gather for Mass through our ordinary Eucharistic assemblies, and since 23 March our churches have been closed. These historic developments have assisted in keeping the people of our country safe, and it has been a remarkable blessing that we have not experienced the devastation of the pandemic seen in other countries.
Recently, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian outlined a three-step plan to ease social and economic distancing. In light of this announcement, Bishop Anthony Randazzo has proposed a relaxation of the current restrictions surrounding our parish communities. Details of the relaxation and how it applies to the parishes of Broken Bay can be found here
