Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 25 May, Mass – restricted to 100 people – is able to resume from this Friday at noon. Your bishops have issued a Pastoral Letter about this, and a letter to parish leadership.
Each parish will decide what is manageable and safe for their community including whether any particular weekday or Sunday Mass resumes. The guidelines for the reception of Holy Communion and health practices during a pandemic remain in place.
Not all parishioners will be able to attend Mass because of the restrictions of numbers. Others will not attend due to health reasons, concerns or fears. For these reasons, the dispensation of attendance at Sunday Mass continues. Live-streamed Masses will continue to be offered for these people.
