Prior to attending a mass in person please read the guidelines that we have in place for everyone’s safety.

We invite you to be present with us every day at 10 am Mass via the parish webcam. Please login 15 mins before to make sure you can connect. You may like to remain with us after Mass for a short time for devotions.

The church remains open from 10:30am – 5:00pm for quiet personal prayer should you wish to call in from Tuesday – Saturday.

The Parish Office and Pastoral Centre will remain closed on Mondays. The Parish Office & Pastoral Centre are remaining closed but are available via phone or email for any queries.

For those attending by Webcam we encourage you to make an Act of Spiritual Communion. By making an Act of Spiritual Communion, we express our faith in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist and ask him to unite himself with us. Here is the Act of Spiritual Communion written by St. Alphonsus de Liguori:

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.

Always check our homepage for the most up to date information on mass times. Our Church (except for funeral mass), Parish Office and Pastoral Centre are closed on Mondays.

6pm Vigil Mass on Saturdays: When possible we have a Cantor to lead the community in singing the hymns and responses.

9am Sunday: Cantor, Liam McAuley (top left) leads the early risers in singing the hymns and responses during this Mass.

11:00am Sunday: At the 11am Family Mass, our Children’s Choir (under the direction of Faye Potts, Director of Adult & Children’s Choirs) takes turns with our Adult Choir in enriching our liturgical celebration. Children take an active part throughout the Mass. During the school holiday months this is a much quieter liturgy!

eucharistic-adoration-03Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

Every Tuesday, after the 10:00am Mass, the celebrant puts the consecrated host into the Monstrance and we have the opportunity to spend a special time in prayer, which we call Eucharistic Adoration. In groups of four, members of our parish community take turns keeping watch in prayer until 10 pm.

Do drop in and join us for a few minutes, especially on Tuesdays.

When we have a funeral Mass, there may be a delay in starting our time of Eucharistic Adoration.
