Sunday service resumes in Australia after lifting of lockdown

Catholics in the Australian state of New South Wales were allowed to attend their first Sunday mass, after coronavirus restrictions were lifted, with only 10 people allowed to be in attendance.

Presiding over mass at St. Michael’s Catholic church in the Sydney suburb of Lane Cove, Father Geoffrey Plant told Reuters that even though the number allowed is small, he considers the gathering as “a blessing.”

Australia has recorded just over 7,000 COVID-19 cases, including 98 deaths.
