Pray at Home

From midday on March 23, 2020, all public Masses and litugical gatherings have been suspended across Australia, with limited exceptions in some jurisdictions for weddings and funerals. You can consult advice from each jurisdiction on our dedicated coronavirus page.

The Bishops Conference is supporting the prayer life of Catholics who are unable to attend Mass. Dioceses and other Catholic organisations are also providing material and access to livestreaming of Masses.

Catholics are encouraged to utilise the resources below to support your prayer life and especially to allow you to continue to keep Sunday as a day when prayer is prominent. Many Catholic organisations have been supportive in their provision of access to material that is sometimes only available via subscription. The Conference thanks St Pauls Publications in particular for allowing the reproduction of its Scripture reflections.

UPDATE: A number of Masses will be broadcast on free-to-air television over the Easter Weekend. Channel 7 -- and Prime7 in regional areas -- will broadcast the Good Friday service live from St Mary's Cathedral (Sydney) at 3pm on April 10 and the Easter Sunday Mass, also from St Mary's Cathedral, at 10.30am on April 12. At 2.30pm on April 12, the ABC will broadcast delayed coverage of Pope Francis celebrating the Easter Vigil.
