Dear Friends

As we move into Stage Four Restrictions the following changes will be in place.

  • The Parish Staff will be working remotely and can be contacted via email at
  • To speak with Fr Pearce or leave a message for the staff that will be checked periodically please call (03)9807 9494.

The existing level three restrictions also remain in place:

  • All public masses and liturgies have ceased and our Church is closed for private prayer.
  • The existing exemption from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in place, and until such time as we can return to Sunday Masses as normal, you are encouraged to continue finding ways to make the Lord's Day holy in your homes and with your families.
  • St. Patrick’s Cathedral will continue to broadcast Mass every Sunday at 11 am on Channel 44.
  • We will continue to provide you with online resources from the Parish including our recorded Liturgy of the Word, articles and resources, and regular e-news, and daily live prayers at 12 Midday and 3 pm.
  • Weddings are not permitted at this time.
  • Funerals are limited to 10 mourners.

Please be assured of my ongoing prayers and my remembrance of you all at daily Mass during these challenging times.

Fr Nicholas Pearce
Parish Priest
