From 14 April 2022: Easing of restrictions – attendance at weddings The other important change to affect parishes is an easing of government restrictions on attendance at weddings. Currently, the number of people attending a wedding is unrestricted if only vaccinated people are attending. If anyone attending a wedding is unvaccinated, the wedding is restricted to a maximum of 20 people. From 14 April 2022, vaccination restrictions will no longer apply to wedding ceremonies and receptions. The number of people able to attend a wedding will be unrestricted, regardless of the vaccination status of those attending.
From 6pm on Friday 4 March 2022:
Hand sanitiser will continue to be available in our church.
Masks will no longer be required indoors, except in hospitals, residential aged care, disability accommodation, prisons, public transport, airports and on planes. Therefore you will be able to remove masks for all aspects of parish Masses and in parish offices. Masks are still recommended to be worn whenever you cannot socially distance. For the protection and peace of mind of vulnerable parishioners, the priest and other communion ministers may wish to wear a mask during the distribution of Holy Communion. Current practices of hand sanitisation should remain in place.
