MASS TIMES

Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Church Oatley.

 

During the lockdown, the Sunday Mass will be live-streamed on YouTube, and you are encouraged to connect prayerfully to this medium.  The streaming will begin at 5 pm on Saturday and can be accessed at any time after the Mass has concluded.

 You can access this on YouTube by following this link:  bit.ly/stjoatley  

 

Mass is also streamed on Thursdays at 12 md for the teachers and children of St. Joseph’s School who are at school or at home with their parents. Parishioners may also wish to connect with this mass each Thursday.

We look forward to seeing you all again at Mass once the restrictions are lifted.

Covid -19 Safety Plan 2021

 

Closure of Churches due to the recent spread of the Corona virus.

As of 6 pm on Saturday, 26th June 2021, Greater Sydney (which includes the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong, and Shellharbour) has gone into an indefinite lockdown.   Consequently, the Church is closed until further notice. The Sunday Mass will be live-streamed on Youtube. You can access this on YouTube by following this link:  bit.ly/stjoatley  

We look forward to seeing you all again at Mass once the restrictions are lifted.

However, funerals are permitted with a limit of 10 attendees.

Weddings are now permitted for small groups: 5 guests only, in addition to those necessary for the liturgy (i.e. the couple, the two witnesses, the celebrant and probably a musician/singer, and photographer).

Baptisms are not permitted, except in case of emergency. Similarly, the anointing of the sick, and sick calls generally, are permitted in case of emergency only.
