The Mass is the source and summit of the Church’s life. The parish meets every Sunday to celebrate the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus. In the Mass we listen to the Word of God in scripture and pray that we are able to respond to it. We give thanks for Jesus and enter into the mystery of his life-giving sacrifice on Calvary.
Here we acknowledge with thanks the sacrifice of a son showing us the extent of the Father’s love for us. We take Holy Communion, the real presence of Christ, to show us that Christ walks with us always, and is there to reassure and support us with his presence. The Mass build us into a loving and caring community.
CORONAVIRUS: Masses are celebrated on Saturdays at 5.00pm, Sundays at 9.30am, and on Tuesdays at 10.00am (after Mass the Church will remain open for private prayer until 12 noon).
