[03/23/20]   URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHBISHOP OF BRISBANE

The Most Reverend Mark Coleridge

23 March 2020

TO THE PASTORS AND PEOPLE OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BRISBANE

Last night the Federal Government suspended all non-essential gatherings for an initial 4 weeks to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and to give the community time to understand fully social distancing requirements. The ruling applies from noon today (23 March).

The ruling includes a suspension of all religious gatherings, places of worship or funerals (in enclosed spaces and other than very small groups and where the 1 person per 4 square metre rule applies).

Therefore, all parishes in the Archdiocese of Brisbane are required to suspend with immediate effect all Masses, including weekday Masses.

Parish churches should close immediately until further notice. Mass will not be celebrated publicly; nor will there be other celebrations such as Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Stations of the Cross. However, the Cathedral of St Stephen will for the time being remain open for private prayer, with the current restrictions and precautions applying. This is because, in a way not possible for parish churches, the Cathedral is able to ensure a supply of the necessary cleaning materials and the staff to ensure that the space and its furnishings are properly cleaned on a regular basis. It is also a symbolic way, at the heart of the city, of pointing to the necessity of prayer at a time when prayer is more needed than ever.

Funerals

Funerals should be a private event strictly limited in size and in line with Queensland Health guidelines The 4 square meter rule shall be adhered to and social distancing of 1.5 metres observed throughout. If you need advice in this matter please contact [email protected].

Other Sacraments

The Sacrament of Reconciliation should not be celebrated until further notice. The Holy See has given permission for the celebration of the Third Rite in exceptional circumstances which are unlikely to apply in this country. Approval should be sought from me or Bishop Howell for any proposed celebration of the Third Rite.

Baptism and weddings should be delayed if at all possible. If these celebrations need to proceed, attendance should again be strictly limited, with the 4 square metre rule and social distancing of 1.5 metres observed in line with the advice I gave last week.
First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Communion should be postponed until the pandemic is over.

Other events
All other parish events, both outdoor and indoor, should be cancelled. This would include events such as outdoor Stations of the Cross on Good Friday.
Meetings should be conducted by phone or skype wherever possible, and where held in person, need to be conducted in line with the 4 square metre rule and social distancing of 1.5 metres throughout.

In days to come, I will provide Archdiocesan directives for the celebration of Holy Week, which will be based upon the guidelines already produced by the Holy See.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference is submitting to the Holy See texts for a Mass in Time of Pandemic, which we hope to have approved in the near future.

I conclude with the Collect of that Mass:
O God, healer of all our ills,
to whom we turn in this time of distress,
grant, we pray in the power of faith,
eternal rest to the dead and comfort to those who mourn,
health to the sick and peace to the dying,
strength to medical workers, wisdom to our leaders
and a spirit of kindness to us all.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

As always in the Lord,
+ Archbishop Mark Coleridge

AN UPDATE FROM FR. TERRY NUEVA, PARISH PRIEST OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA CHURCH.

Email sent to parish community leaders today.

Thank you for coming to last Tuesday’s meeting. As we have anticipated, the worst case scenario is now upon us. Please read below message from the Archbishop, which in effect nullifies what we have discussed.

In the spirit of our Lenten journey, let this be a time to further intensify our prayer and spiritual life, even at home as we nourish our faith with regular family prayers, bible reading and following Masses live-streamed from the Cathedral at archbne.org/bzw, or other online Catholic Masses we are familiar with.

Tomorrows Friday Novena Mass at 6:30 pm, and this Saturday’s at 8:30 am will be the last masses I will celebrate until further instructions from the archbishop.

Please get in touch via email or phone if you have concerns.

God bless you and your loved ones,

Brisbane archbishop suspends Sunday Masses amid coronavirus pandemic, weekday Masses to go ahead.
Fr. Terry

---------------------------------------------------------------------
BRISBANE Archbishop Mark Coleridge announced all Sunday Masses, including Saturday vigil, were suspended with immediate effect until further notice and all the faithful were dispensed from their Sunday obligation.

In a pastoral letter, Archbishop Coleridge said these were “anxious times” as the country entered into “new and uncharted territory”.
“The spread of the coronavirus is alarming for a generation that has known nothing like it, and it shows how fragile we are,” he said.
“How long it will last we do not know, but almost certainly we are in for the long haul.
“For all of us, this is a challenge at many levels.”
High-level archdiocesan meetings met each day as further information and recommendations were passed down from government agencies, he said.
“Now in the light of the latest advice from the Government and Catholic Health Australia, the archdiocese has come to further decisions,” he said.
In light of the Sunday Mass ban, the archbishop said priests would continue to celebrate Mass (the Mass for the people) on Sunday without a congregation, which would be live-streamed from St Stephen’s Cathedral at archbne.org/bzw on Sundays and weekdays.
Other changes were outlined as follows:
• For the time being, weekday Masses may be celebrated as scheduled, with the current restrictions and precautions to be observed.
• The Sacrament of Reconciliation should in general be celebrated only by appointment with the priest, with the current precautions to be observed.
• Any Church celebration or event where more than 100 people are expected should be cancelled or postponed.
• All attending any Church celebration or event should respect the requirements of physical distancing.
• All ministers of Holy Communion, including the priest, should disinfect their hands before and after distributing.
• In the Ordinary Form of the Latin Rite, the Body of Christ should be administered only in the hand and the chalice should be received by the celebrant alone.
• The Sign of Peace should be limited to saying “Peace be with you” with a nod or bow; no hand-shaking or hand-holding should occur here or at the Our Father.
• Hymn books should not be used.
• As far as possible, churches should remain open to allow private prayer; the Blessed Sacrament might be exposed in the monstrance for this purpose – as long as fewer than 100 are attending and with the usual provisions for reverence and security of the Sacrament.
• Communion to the sick should be taken by priests alone and in general be restricted to Viaticum to the dying, with the current restrictions and precautions to be observed.
• Prayers of intercession for an end to the pandemic and for the safety of all should be included in Masses, in the Liturgy of the Hours and in private prayer; houses of consecrated religious are asked to intensify their intercessory prayer also.
• Baptisms, weddings and funerals may be celebrated, but restricted if necessary to immediate family; baptisms and weddings can always be postponed.
• Preparation for and celebration of First Penance, Confirmation and First Communion should be postponed until the pandemic is over.
• Priests should ensure that parishioners can contact them in emergencies.

Communion changes: In the Ordinary Form of the Latin Rite, the Body of Christ should be administered only in the hand and the chalice should be received by the celebrant alone.
Archbishop Coleridge said it was essential in a time such as this to strengthen and deepen our spiritual life, precisely so that we do not “lose sight of Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2).
“The Archdiocese will do everything possible to assist you with this; and there is an abundance of online resources – including Mass at home – to nourish your faith through this time,” he said.
“As Pope Francis has said, pastors will have to show creativity in ministering to their people; and there are many examples of this around the world, with technology making it less difficult than in the past.”
Archbishop Coleridge closed the letter with two prayers, one he handwrote.
Brisbane archdiocese’s new directions were part of a national move by bishops in light of the Australian Government’s ban on indoor gatherings of more than 100 announced yesterday.

Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP

Today we honour Servant of God and Sydney woman Eileen O’Connor who recently took a significant step forward on her path towards becoming Australia’s second saint as I called for testimony to support her cause for canonisation.

Eileen is indeed an inspiration to us all. She suffered much in her young life, including a debilitating illness and at times extreme poverty. But her love of Christ never wavered and is very much alive today through the outreach to Sydney’s most vulnerable through the compassionate care of Our Lady’s Nurses for the Poor.

As we mark the anniversary of her death, let us unite in a prayer that the Little Mother may be raised to be counted among the saints in heaven.
