Bookings no long essential for weekend Masses and special events

Following an update from the South Australian Police on increase of capacity for churches, we are happy to announce that you do not need to book in advance to attend Mass on weekends and special events (such as Holy Week).

We would, however, recommend that you carry a mask with you.

The full details for the direction can be found at: Public activities | SA.GOV.AU: COVID-19

The key points of the directive are:

  1. Where worshippers are in fixed seating the requirement is that worshippers wear masks when more than 75% of the seats are occupied.
  2. Where worshippers are not in fixed seating the requirements is that worshippers wear masks if the total number of persons present at the place exceeds 3 person per 4 square metres.
  3. A mask is not required to be worn in the circumstances where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication i.e. those celebrating mass and choirs.
  4. An attendee under the age of 12 is not required to wear a mask neither is a person with a relevant medical condition (evidence must be produced on request).
