Parish update 9.06.21
COVID update: As of Government Media Conference Wednesday 9 June 2021
Melburnians will come out of lockdown at midnight on Thursday 10 June. This means that Masses will resume in the Parish on Friday (June 11) 9.15am at St. Bernadette’s.
All weekend Masses will be celebrated at the usual times with the following two restrictions:
1. Numbers are limited to 50 - arrive early.
2. Masks must be worn indoors.
These restrictions will last until Thursday 17 June when further announcements are expected from the Government.
On our website, you can also access our weekly ‘Children’s Liturgy’ and links to online Masses (though we would prefer to see you in person).
In summary the following restrictions and regulations apply:
Religious Gatherings, Masses & Ceremonies: 50 people
Parish Office: Despite relaxation in restrictions, office hours are all over the place because our Parish Secretary is on leave. Please use email or phone to contact Fr. Bill Ivanhoe@cam.org.au or 0427 879 733. Alternatively, leave messages and other material in the letterbox outside Mother of God Church.
Funerals: Permitted with no more than 50 people
Face Masks: Must be worn while at Mass and at other indoor venues. Not required outdoors but you must carry one.
Travel: You cannot travel more than 25 kms from your home. You no longer need a reason to leave home.
Please go to our website for all other news and links www.ivanhoecatholics.com
I look forward to see you back at Mass this weekend.
With my prayers and best wishes.
