IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  

COVID UPDATE

Welcome back to St Michael’s Parish.  As Victoria has now reached 90% of the population who are fully vaccinated, changes to note with regards to religious gatherings are:-

  • Proof of full covid vaccination or exemption status is now required for all attendees aged 12years +2months and over, at all Masses & Liturgies in the Parish
  • Whilst mask wearing is no longer compulsory, it is still recommend  and required where safe distancing is not possible
  • QR Check-in at all religious gatherings remains

Christmas Masses

  • This year there will be no preregistering for any of the services and it is important that you arrive early, especially to the Christmas Eve Masses, so that the Covid Marshals have ample time to check your covid vaccination or exemption status and also that you QR check-in.  Unfortunately, attendees aged 12 years and over who are not fully vaccinated will not be permitted to attend (or stand outside)
  • Mask wearing is compulsory for all attendees aged 12 years and over
  • In fairness to others, saving of seats for other family members is not permitted.

For more information and updates, please refer to the parish bulletin.

Many Thanks,

Fr Minh & Staff
