From 11:59pm on Sunday 31 May 2020, the Victorian Government further eased some of the statewide Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions which have enabled small gatherings in places of worship. The Catholic Bishops of Victoria have determined that churches in Victoria may be opened in certain pre-arranged circumstances and in compliance with distancing rules and hygiene measures to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19.
