New Chapel Protocols for COVID-19

Catholic Diocese of the Australian Military Services

To reduce the risk and spread potential of COVID – 19 in the Chapels, the Diocese will be undertaking the following protocols until further notice:
      1. Removal of Holy Water from Fonts.
      2. Ask the faithful to acknowledge each other at the sign of peace, but refrain from touching.
      3. Distribute the Sacred Host only and not the Precious Blood.

Yours in Christ
