Update from the Church on the COVID-19 Virus situation.
In light of the serious health risks to the most vulnerable among us due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and having taken advice from the Ministry of Health, as of Friday 20 March 2020, the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference have agreed to suspend all Masses including Sunday Mass until further notice in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Mass is core to our Catholic identity and the Eucharist is the “source and summit of our Christian life” [Lumen Gentium, 11]. However people need to be aware that Bishop Pat formally gives the People of God dispensation from the obligation to participate at Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation (cc 87 #1, 1247).
You can find the daily Mass resources here.
