Good News! We can now accommodate up to 170 people in the church at each Mass without booking in.

Check in CBR app

When we come to Mass, if parishioners are able, we ask that you download and install the ACT Government "Check in CBR" app, please see this page on the ACT Government site for the download links (iPhone/Android).  If you are not able to install the app, there are sign-in sheets available. 

However a Check In CBR card is now available, designed for those people who do not own a smartphone or who are unable to download or use the Check In CBR app. To apply for this card you can either call access Canberra on 13 22 81 or apply online using the following link:

Giving to the Parish

We are very grateful for your continuing support of our Parish. 

The parish will always accept cash but for those who are not happy handling it in the current pandemic we have multiple ways you can continue to support the parish.

If you would like to give to the parish but are unable to get to church you can still give by depositing directly into the parish accounts. If you have an envelope number please put it into the reference field when giving to the parish if you would like a receipt. If it is for the priests (first collection) you do not have to put anything in the reference field.

Tap and Go

Because of Covid-19 and the decrease in using cash, the parish has purchased a Tap and Go machine for the collection of monies for the first and second collections. It is in the body of the church between the sacristy and the side door and accepts Mastercard and Visa along with debit cards. For every dollar, 30 cents goes to the parish presbytery account and 70 cents goes to our parish. 

Qkr! App

The parish is signed up with secure Qkr! by Mastercard App, as a way to make payments to the parish. It’s an app that you can download for your phone, from the App store or Google Play, and use to make payments for collections before during and after Mass, even when you are away. Every payment you make is recorded within your app wallet for easy reference at a later date and your Mastercard or Visa Card details are stored with the security of Masterpass (not on your phone) for ready access when making payment. This app can also be used to make payments for the various special collections throughout the year, Project Compassion, The Priest's Retirement Foundation Father's Day Appeal, Mission Sunday and The Archbishop's Christmas Appeal. There are leaflets about Qkr! available in the foyer of the church.

We also have periodic bank debit and Credit card debits that can be set up for you - just talk to the parish office.




From the Parish Pastoral Council

Please join the PPC for morning tea after the 9.00am Mass this Sunday 28 November.

Over a cup of tea or coffee along with sandwiches, cakes and biscuits we look forward to:

· celebrating that we can now meet, share and enjoy one another’s company,

· outlining the reasons behind the Presbytery’s pressing need for renovation.

Currently, donations for the Presbytery Appeal have reached 21,720 due to the generosity of parishioners.   We’d love to have you join us this Sunday and if you are able to make a donation, however small, envelopes and a Tap and Go machine will be available.

If you are unable to make the  Morning Tea, Donation Envelopes are available at the Church or online contributions may be made via the Parish account:
