Information current as at 14 July 2021
Today, the NSW Government has announced a further extension to stay-at-home orders for the whole for the Greater Sydney area. The lockdown now remains in effect until 11:59 pm on Friday 30 July.
As such, all Masses are still cancelled, and the church remains closed.
Funerals may be celebrated, but under specific restrictions. Please contact the parish office should you need to discuss the options that are possible.
Provided these restrictions do not change, Mass will resume again on Saturday 31 July.
Thank you for your cooperation with these government requirements.
Celebrating Sunday at home
As parishioners cannot attend Mass, we have returned to providing our Celebration of the Word for God for use at home in its original, Sunday-specific format while stay-at-home orders are in place. Masses are being live streamed from St Patrick’s Cathedral via the Diocesan YouTube Channel and St Patrick’s Cathedral Facebook page. Mass for You At Home can be viewed on Channel 10 (Sunday 6:00 am), or on demand via 10play, YouTube, or the Mass for You at Home website.
This weekend (17/18 July) is our annual celebration of the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, our Parish Feast Day. Resources are provided for parishioners to celebrate the feast day this weekend, both through prayer and home and live streamed Mass from the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Middle Park, Melbourne).
While restrictions remain in place, Bishop Vincent’s dispensation from the obligation to participate in Sunday Mass remains in place in the Diocese of Parramatta.
