    COVID-19 update
    Churches are allowed unlimited numbers of worshippers, providing a two square metre rule is followed. Congregational singing is now allowed. The COVID Safe Plan for Places of Worship strongly encourages electronic collection of worshippers’ names and contact details.  Many parishes are doing this by online registration for Masses rather than a QR code and can continue doing so. Parishes may keep paper records and then transfer this data across into an electronic format. Record keeping is compulsory. More information is available online: https://www.sydneycatholic.org/coronavirus-updates/.
