Mass Times


21st June 2020.

Last Saturday evening, the Victorian Government announced a re-imposition of restrictions on gatherings in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. These retrictions will be reviewed by the 12th of July 2020 and remain in force until then.


Places of worship can open for private worship or small religious ceremonies for up to 20 people, plus those reasonably required to conduct the ceremony, in each separate area, observing the one person per four square metre rule.


The current requirements for social distancing and cleaning between ceremonies and for recording the name and contact phone number for each attendee will continue.


To make things a little easier for recording of names I will leave your name listed for the mass day and time that you have been attending over the past few weeks. But you must let me know if you are not attending.


Please note the Mass times in Portland; Wednesday 5.00pm, Friday 10.00am, Saturday 6.00pm and Sunday 10.30am.


Please contact me if you wish to change your mass time, change your mass day, or nominate a mass that you wish to attend from this point onwards. Please contact me by texting me on my mobile phone, 0475 512 530.

Kind regards, Fr Gregory
