Pop-up COVID-19 Testing Site

The parish was approached by NSW Health to establish a drive-through COVID-19 test centre in our car park.  The team set up a large marquee on Tuesday 13 July and a formal clinic was operational from 8am that day.

The centre will function under the following arrangements:

  • This is a temporary centre and will only operate during the period of this current lockdown

  • The site will be open 6 days a week from Sunday to Friday (it will be closed on a Saturday at this stage)

  • Opening hours are from 8am to 4pm

  • Entry is from Isaac Street and the exit is onto Forest Road.

Please take advantage of the facility if the need arises, and don't hesitate to inform your friends and neighbours about the clinic.

Commitment to Safeguarding Children

We are committed to making our parish a safe place for our children. Child sexual abuse is a crime. The appropriate people to deal with a crime are the police. If you, or anyone you know, have been abused, please contact the police. Alternatively, you can contact the Safeguarding and Ministerial Integrity Office at (02) 9390 5810 or safeguardingenquiries@sydneycatholic.org. You may also want to speak to your Parish Priest who will be able to provide support and guidance. The Archdiocese has a legal obligation to report crimes to the police.
