Last weekend’s Mass attracted more than 2000 live views and is estimated to have been watched by approximately 4000 people. While 92% of the online audience was viewing the Mass from NSW, it also attracted an international audience with people from five different countries logging in.
The transition online ushers in a “new normal” for worship in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle after the coronavirus forced the closure of all churches for the first time since Spanish influenza struck a century ago.
Mass will be live-streamed from Sacred Heart Cathedral at 9.30 am this Sunday, and every Sunday, while COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Visit https://www.mn.catholic.org.au/places/live-stream/
