29th March 2020 – Fifth Sunday of Lent (Year A)

23/3/2020 – Under direction of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act, our church is considered to be a non-essential service. From 12.00pm on Monday 23rd March until midnight on Monday 13th April we must remain closed.

As of Tuesday 18th March 2020, at the direction of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, we have had immediate suspension of all public liturgies and celebrations of the Mass until further notice.

If you wish to receive our newsletter via email please let us know at stannesparish@gmail.com.

 


Despite our current limitations, we can still participate in the celebration of Mass online thanks to modern technology. Many dioceses around the world provide online streaming of Masses, including our own Archdiocese of Melbourne. Below are some links to online Masses.  We also encourage you to think about how you might help those homebound and less tech-savvy to be able to access Mass online during this time.
