CHURCH AND RESTRICTIONS From Bishop Gerard Dear one and all Please see below today's advice regarding Government regulations to protect against the coronavirus. Please note that the requirement that churches be closed has NOT changed. Anyone with concern about this should communicate it to the Premier's office, and send copies to their State Parliament upper and lower house representatives. There is no point in people trying to argue with me about a regulation I cannot change. The sensible course of action is to remain calm and communicate with those who can. God bless, Bishop Gerard From the WA Government - updated 29.04.20 Religious Services during COVID-19 Coronavirus During the Coronavirus outbreak we need to change the way we observe our faiths, to protect ourselves and others. While places of worship remain closed to the public, services can still be streamlined online to the community........Together we can stop the spread and stay healthy.
