COVID Restrictions Relaxing

We are very pleased to share with you the news that the Qld Government has announced the following upcoming easing of restrictions in Queensland from 6pm on Friday 4 March 2022:

Masks will no longer be required indoors, except in hospitals, residential aged care, disability accommodation, prisons, public transport, airports and on planes. Therefore we 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. Current practices of hand sanitisation should remain in place.

Places of worship will no longer have capacity limits, and this will include funerals and weddings.

Covid cleaning protocols may cease. Hand sanitiser should still be made available at the entrance of the church.

Normal collection practices may resume, that is, the collection basket may be passed around.

The Procession of Gifts may resume.

Parish communities can immediately resume all forms of food service. Please also remain vigilant with hand hygiene.


Thank you, one and all, for the ways you’ve helped keep our parish community safe over these last few months. The proof is in the pudding: we haven’t had Omicron rip through out worshiping communities (touch wood)!
