Coronavirus (Covid 19) Update
Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv has dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese of Parramatta from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the time being.
Ten people are now permitted to attend Mass, besides those classed as essential workers (celebrant and assistants). Please email the parish secretary (email@example.com) if you would like to be allotted a time slot at Mass.
From Tuesday, 19 May, the usual Mass times will resume. After this date, weekend Mass times will return to Vigil 6pm (Sat) and 8am and 9.30am (Sun). We will continue to live-stream Masses online. From Sunday 24 May one weekend Mass only will be live-streamed here.
