Stained Glass Window Restoration

Our Parish has been successful in obtaining a Grant from the Blakeney Millar Foundation. This Grant of $25,000, is specifically to carry out major repairs to two stained glass windows in our Church, namely St Michael and Sacred Heart windows (adjacent to pulpit).  We are so grateful to the Blakeney Millar Foundation for their generous donation.  Repairs will be done by Hamilton Design Glass in Sydney. 


COVID restrictions

Currently there are two weekend Masses on offer, Saturday Vigil at 6PM and Sunday at 10AM.

The church can accommodate people in accordance with the 1 person per 2sqm rule.  Approx 150 people allowed in the church.

At this stage there is no requirement to book in to attend Mass but you asked to sign the register as you enter the church.

Mary, Mother of God - 1 January Mass 10am

Date: Jan 1 2021


We celebrate the liturgical feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 1st, which is the Octave of Christmas.  Only Christmas and Easter enjoy the privilege of an octave, which is an eight day extension of the feast.
The feast is a celebration of Mary’s motherhood of Jesus.  The title “Mother of God” is a western derivation from the Greek Theotokos, which means “God-bearer”.  On this day, we are reminded of the role that the Blessed Virgin played in the plan of our salvation.  Through the Holy Spirit, God the Father prepared Mary to be the dwelling place where His Son and His Spirit could dwell among men.  Christ’s birth was made possible by Mary’s fiat, or sanctioning of God’s plan with her words, “Be it done to me according to thy word”.  Calling Mary “Mother of God” is the highest honor we can give to her.  Just as Christmas honors Jesus as the “Prince of Peace”, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God honors Mary as the “Queen of Peace”.  
New Year’s Day is also designated as the “World Day of Peace”, further acknowledging the role of Mary in our hearts and in our world.
