church in sydneys west hosts packed service hours after priests son tested positive to coronavirus

A Western Sydney church hosted a crowded congregation of worshipers hours after the site was deep cleaned after a parishioner tests positive for coronavirus.

The Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral in Harris Park held a mass at 6pm on Saturday after Father Danny Nouh’s son Michael tested positive for COVID-19.

Michael is a regular attendee at the church, which was deep cleaned three times on Saturday after his diagnosis, before parishioners flocked to the venue for the evening service.

The service was streamed on the Our Lady of ­Lebanon YouTube channel and shows patrons ignoring social distancing while queuing for communion, with no face masks or personal protective equipment worn by the priests.

Father Nouh posted a Facebook update for churchgoers on Sunday after the church was closed following Michael’s positive diagnosis. 

‘Instructions were followed to undertake a deep clean of the church premises according to the “safe work NSW standards”,’ his post reads.

‘That process was followed immediately and the cleaning was undertaken before any further services were held.

‘We were advised that the church did not require closing. The decision was subsequently taken to close the church as a precautionary measure only.

‘We have taken all the necessary measures to ensure the safety of our parish community.’

Michael was exposed to the virus earlier this month after attending Thai Rock restaurant at Wetherill Park.

Following his diagnosis, Father Nouh and his family went into isolation and were tested for the disease, with all but Michael returning a negative result.

The church have urged anyone who attended the parish between July 15 and 18 and is showing symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested.

The community, youth and pastoral center of the church have also been cleaned.

The church is set to reopen on July 21.

There were 24 new cases of coronavirus confirmed in New South Wales on Sunday, sparking fears of a wider second wave outbreak.

Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s son, Jett Kenny, has been spotted for the first time since the tragic death of his sister Jaimi.

The 26-year-old model was seen on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast getting out of a red Mercedes with surf ski attached to the roof racks.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant looked downcast but put on a brave face.

Days earlier Jett Kenny had admitted he wasn’t always the best brother to Jaimi, who battled an eating disorder for many years.

‘I may not have been the best brother to you all the time, I know you thought you weren’t being the big sister I needed all the time, but I do know we loved one another unconditionally all the time,’ he wrote on his Instagram page on Tuesday.

‘I will love you forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful big sister, the world lost one of its treasures yesterday but heaven gained one. You will be dearly missed by all whose lives you touched.’  

Over the past week, the heartbroken brother has sought the comfort of friends, to make it through the harrowing period.

But on Friday, he was seen alone sporting a white baseball cap, navy blue board shorts and a plain white t-shirt with dark sunglasses.

Appearing relaxed in a pair of thongs, the Queensland lifesaver but on a brave face in the wake of his heart-wrenching loss.

On Wednesday, Jett shared footage of himself drinking cocktails and eating pizza with pals on Instagram at a trendy Brisbane restaurant.

One photo shows him smiling as he sits behind a table overlooking the water, while joined by his friend Jamo Porter. 

Also in attendance was Jamo’s partner, Karis Ramsay, who uploaded a photo of Jett and Jamo enjoying a lighthearted conversation. 

‘Happy anniversary,’ Karis wrote next to the image, suggesting that that the purpose of the outing was to celebrate her and Jamo’s relationship milestone. 

Sitting in front of Jett and his pal were plates of chips, a burger, several large pizzas and two cold beverages.

‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself,’ he continued.

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.

‘We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us the extra time we were able to spend with her.

‘It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy.’

Former NRL star Daniel Conn threw rock and intimidated staff at Potts Point gym he once worked at

An ex-NRL star has admitted to throwing a rock through a window of a boxing gym he once worked at as well as intimidating staff.

Daniel Conn, 34, who once starred for the Canterbury Bulldogs, Gold Coast Titans and Sydney Roosters faced charges from three separate instances at the Hustle Boxing gym in Potts Point in Sydney.

Conn pleaded guilty to intimidation and stalking, destroying property and breaching an AVO, and on Friday was sentenced to an aggregate 14 month conditional release order.

Conn had quit working at the boutique gym last year and on December 8 he threw a rock through one of the glass windows, the Downing Centre Court heard.

Within days he returned to the gym only to be told by an employee he ‘wasn’t welcome’, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The 34-year-old then shouted: ‘You don’t know what you’ve done, you don’t know what will happen next’.

The owner of the Hustle Boxing gym then took an AVO out against Conn, which banned him from being within 100 metres of the fitness centre.

The retired NRL player then drove past the gym on a scooter on December 19 and waived to those inside.

Conn on Friday said he would cover the $4,520 cost of the broken window.

Magistrate Michael Antrum took into account that Conn had been receiving help for mental health issues but condemned his behaviour towards the gym’s staff.

The 34-year-old had also starred on the hit reality show Geordie Shore with Vicky Pattison

‘We live in a generally peaceful community and while a boxing gym may not be an obvious target for intimidation, all persons are entitled to attend a workplace without fear of intimidation,’ he said. 

The conditions of Conn’s release order means he must pay compensation to the gym as well as continue mental health treatment.

The 34-year-old retired from the NRL in 2011 and became a personal trainer.

He also featured on the hit reality show Geordie Shore in 2013 and briefly dated star Vicky Pattison.

Conn was also once the face and global athletic director of the F45 fitness chain.

Recently the ex-footy star opened up about his struggles with depression and his attempts at taking his own life.

Gary Ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will ‘change our DNA’ in bizarre rant

gary ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will change our dna in bizarre rant

AFL legend Gary Ablett Sr has taken to YouTube to deliver a complex rant linking the coronavirus pandemic to ‘End Times’ biblical prophecies, and conspiracy theories about Freemasons and the Illuminati.

The 27-minutes long video filmed in his car and posted to YouTube on Friday provided a very rare insight into the state of mind of a man who many regard as the greatest to have played the sport.

Ablett, 58, who had seldom spoken publicly throughout his playing career and since, made up for lost time with an extraordinary video that linked COVID-19 to the ‘new world order’ and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Scroll down for video.

‘It’s not natural. It didn’t come from bats. They’re lying to us and they have been for decades,’ Mr Ablett said of the virus.

‘It was man made in a lab. Deliberately designed and deliberately released.’

‘They don’t want a cure. Why? Because they want us to take their vaccines. And their vaccines are going to kill us. They want to wipe out billions of people.’

The 58-year-old says later in the video that the development of a vaccine is part of a ‘trans-humanist’ plot.

‘These vaccines they are talking about, they want to change our DNA and there are things in them… and they are trying to link us up with artificial intelligence so we can both give and receive messages.’ 

Ablett, who is the father of dual Brownlow Medallist Gary Ablett Jr, said the virus is ‘camouflage’ for globalist agendas like the introduction of a one-world currency and the banning of cash.

‘They need to crash the global economy… [so that] cash will be gone and what they are trying to bring in is their global digital currency,’ he said.

‘A one-world money system that is going to lead to the mark of the beast.’

Mr Ablett repeatedly touched on religious themes in the lengthy monologue and said the rapture – when Christians are unified with God – was ‘imminent’.

He also argued the Victorian Premier was being used by those who were conducting the conspiracy.

‘Daniel Andrews is nothing but a puppet to a very corrupt establishment and Victoria is the test case for what they are wanting to do in the entire nation,’ Mr Ablett said.

‘We need to wake up and rise up and stand against this stuff and expose them for who they really are because it’s all satanic.

‘The only real answer for the world at this time is to repent of your sins and give your heart to Jesus Christ.’
