Archdiocese Covid Update from Canon Gargaro
The legal requirement to wear face coverings in church will be lifted this Monday 4th April. From Monday it will no longer be compulsory to wear face coverings in places of worship, or at weddings or funerals or commemorative events, but people (including clergy) may choose to still wear them and that choice should be respected.
Face coverings will remain compulsory in other settings until 18th April, so priests/deacons/ extraordinary ministers of holy communion will still need to wear face coverings when visiting hospitals, schools, nursing homes, etc. as part of their pastoral ministry.
Please keep in your prayers Jacks, Rebecca, Jason and Rokas, who will be received into the Church at the Easter Vigil.
Walk, Cycle or Scoot to the Vigil or Easter Sunday Mass ~ Weekend 16 / 17 April.

Catholic Social Teaching Thought for the Week – 3 April The sordid love of wealth, which is the shame and great sin of our age, will be opposed in actual fact by the gentle yet effective law of Christian moderation which commands man to seek first the Kingdom of God and His justice, with the assurance that, by virtue of God’s kindness and unfailing promise, temporal goods also, in so far as he has need of them, shall be given him besides.Quadragesimo Anno, para. 136
