If is hot on Christmas Eve, you are welcome to bring a bottle of water with you, particularly for our 5:00 pm Mass (as it is usually quite busy). If you would prefer to avoid the crowds, we suggest the 7:00 pm Mass on Christmas Eve, or the 8:00 am Mass on Christmas Morning.
Every year, we invite our community to pray for students who are completing Higher School Certificate exams. You can have your name, or the names of people you know who are sitting these exams soon, added to our list of prayer intentions.
All names listed will be published in our bulletin on 9 October and parishioners will be asked to keep these students (and all students preparing for end of year exams) in their prayers.
On Sunday 15 May, Carmelite Blessed Titus Brandsma was canonised at a Mass led by Pope Francis in Rome. Titus was a martyr of the Second World War, one of ten Carmelites killed at the Dachau Concentration Camp.
Everyone is invited to join us for our Mass of Thanksgiving for the Canonisation of St Titus on Sunday 31 July at 10:00 am. Masses of Thanksgiving are being celebrated in every parish within the Carmelite Province of Australia and Timor-Leste.
If you have not already registered to attend an Easter Sunday Mass at church over recent weekends, there are some limited places still available, based on our current capacity limits. These Masses are:
The Easter Vigil (Saturday 7:30 pm)
Easter Sunday Masses (8:00 am and 10:00 am)
If you wish to attend one of these celebrations, you will need to register on arrival. Remaining places will be filled on a first come, first served basis. See the greeters at the registration table in the parish centre for assistance.
Please do not call the parish office to register to attend an Easter Sunday Mass. The office is closed for the long weekend.
There is no 6:00 pm Mass on Holy Saturday or Easter Sunday night.
Also, so you don’t miss Mass, everyone is reminded that Daylight Saving ends early Sunday morning – clocks go BACK one hour.
If your child is baptised, and you believe that you and your child are ready to prepare for, and participate in their celebration of the Sacraments of Reconciliation or Confirmation this year, then you are invited to enrol in this process.
