School Centenary Mass

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Wentworthville, 1922-2022

The Parish and School invites parishioners and anyone connected to our school community (past or present) to join us for Mass to celebrate 100 years of Catholic Education in Wentworthville.

Saturday 29 October
6:00 pm
A light dinner will follow in the school playground

If you are coming along, please be aware that Cumberland City Council’s Diwali Festival is on the same evening:

  • Station Street will be closed between Dunmore and McKern Streets
  • If you are driving to the church, best access will be via Cumberland Highway and Smith Street, Fullagar Road and Dunmore Street, or Great Western Highway and Dunmore Street
  • Arrive in plenty of time to find parking, as it will be limited; parking will probably be more easily found towards Wentworthville Public School
  • The Bennett Street playground will be open for parking as usual, but the Garfield Street car park will be reserved for invited guests

Find more details about our location and surroundings on our Visit Us page.

Add Names to Our HSC Prayer List


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.

Canonisation of Titus Brandsma

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.

Thanksgiving Mass

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.

The Carmelites of Australia and Timor Leste have prepared a series of articles about the Carmelite family’s newest saint. The buttons below will allow you to access these materials on their website.

COVID-19 Update (19 February 2022)

All are welcome to join us at Mass

Check in no longer required

Face mask restrictions ease on 25 February

We still have resources for those who need to celebrate Sunday at home

Further information

Restrictions eased for places of worship

Further easing of COVID-19 restrictions took effect on 18 February. This means that Masses and other parish activities may return to pre-COVID arrangements in large part, and that Service NSW Check In is no longer required. If you have stayed at home since the last lockdown, we are ready to welcome you back to church.

If, however, you are displaying COVID symptoms, please stay at home until you have recovered. We ask this to ensure the safety of you and our whole community.

The wearing of face masks at church remains mandatory for another week. From Friday 25 February, the wearing of face masks is encouraged (especially when physical distancing is not possible) but no longer mandatory.

We understand that some people may still need to celebrate Sunday at home (for example, people who are sick or whose health makes them vulnerable). We will continue to share resources for praying at home on our website from The Carmelites of Australia and Timor-Leste, Mass for You at Home, and our diocesan cathedral.

Sunday Mass obligation has been restored

In 2020, when COVID-19 restrictions were first put in place, Bishop Vincent Long temporarily suspended the obligation of Catholics in the Diocese of Parramatta to participate in Sunday Mass. Since attendance limits were lifted in New South Wales in December, the Sunday Mass obligation has been restored. You at not required, however, to participate in Mass if you are unwell, and Communion can be brought to those who are sick or housebound. Contact us if you require this support.
