The third step

As you would be aware, the Victorian government has announced some easing of the restrictions that have been in force to counter the spread of COVID-19.

In regional Victoria, including our Diocese of Ballarat, we have moved to the Third Step of the government’s staged reopening. This applied from September 16.

The provisions do not allow us to gather in our churches to celebrate Mass.  However, there are a number of ways to celebrate Mass online.  See below:
