IMPORTANT UPDATE

All Masses this weekend (23/24 January) are temporarily limited to 100 persons and all attendees must wear a mask due to the current COVID-19 restrictions. We will review this once the Government provide further updates on this Friday 22 January. To avoid complications of seating arrangements, bookings for next weekend’s (30/31 January) Masses will open on Friday once the Government update its restrictions. Please assist us by booking in prior to arriving at church so we can ensure a smooth check-in process. We look forward to celebrating Mass with you!
