Gatherings include any occasion when three or more people come together. This includes masses and other liturgies, and both administrative and social meetings with parish staff, volunteers and other members of the community.
Government legislation requires us to record the name, address and phone number for everyone attending a gathering, and to keep these records for 56 days.
Every parish gathering needs to comply with COVID-19 legislative requirements.
