UPDATED 18 OCTOBER 2021
Following the reaching of the 80% double vaccinated milestone, the churches within the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle will begin to reopen with effect from today. The precise timing for each church within the diocese will be dependant upon putting the necessary precautions and requirements in place, but most churches will be reopened in time for Sunday Masses on the weekend of 23/24 October.
The Cathedral will reopen for public Masses commencing with the Saturday evening Mass of 23 October, with the usual weekday scheduled of Masses recommencing on Monday 25 October. The 9.30am Mass will continue to be live-streamed once we reopen, and will be carried on the Cathedral's YouTube channel, which can be accessed by clicking here.
The reopening of the Cathedral is subject to some continuing requirements and restrictions which are summarised on the updated Entry Requirements poster to be found at each of the doors of the Cathedral and also found below.
