The NSW Government has mandated the use of masks in high-risk public settings such as places of worship, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This is compulsory for each parishioner over 12.
Please bring a mask to gain entry to the church. This is the case when just making a visit to the church as well as for Masses. Those without a mask can incur a fine of $200.

The current maximum occupancy of St Joseph Church in accordance with the 4 square metre guidelines is – 80
The current maximum occupancy of St Rose Church in accordance with the 4 square metre guidelines is – 50
A mask is not a substitute for other precautions
Using a mask may provide a false sense of security. The use of a mask and only a mask will not prevent infection.
Remember, the best ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 remain:
practicing physical distancing
washing your hands
coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue
staying home when sick.
