The Catholic Church in South West Queensland LIVE STREAM MASS EASTER TIMETABLE

Coronavirus Response & Resources

Sunday Mass (9:00am) will continue to be live streamed from St Patrick’s Cathedral Toowoomba.

Response

The Catholic Diocese of Toowoomba is constantly monitoring the Public Health Directions issued by Queensland Health to ensure compliance with the latest applicable Direction.

Parishes

The Queensland 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 masks are not required at parish Masses and in parish offices. Masks are still recommended to be worn when you can’t 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.
  • The Rite of Reconciliation can be made available as per pre-Covid arrangements
  • Parishes can immediately resume all forms of food service. As a matter of caution, parishioners should minimise the shared handling of serving tongs, milk jugs etc. to reduce risk of transmitting the COVID contact with shared utensils. Hand sanitiser should be made available.

This is welcome news for  our parish communities.  We will continue to monitor government protocols as the above instructions could be subject to change in response to COVID-19.

We extend our sincere thanks to the parishioners across the Diocese for their extra efforts and good will over these past two years.
