Mass Online

As our church buildings reopen to more people, and parishioners and visitors begin to join us for Mass, we are aware that in reality the Church - the People of God, Body of Christ, and Temple of the Holy Spirit - is always very much with us, just as Jesus remains with us. During the time we have been apart we have discovered ways to participate in Masses and tap into other resources for our faith formation and nourishment, supporting one another and continuing to be a part of the life of the Church.

Jesus, gift of love and hope for our world

This pandemic has seen Victorians experience such a long period of physical separation from one another, watching as families and individuals have faced immense loss and challenges, waiting for the day when we would emerge as a community once again.

Important Announcement

Due to current Victorian Government COVID-19 restrictions, if you wish to participate in a Mass in person at our parish, please follow the instructions provided at Join us for Mass.
