CHURCH CAPACITY

Please make sure you arrive before the start of Mass to register. The 10am Mass is now reaching capacity (100 parishioners). Once the 100 has been reached, the door will be locked and no one else will be admitted. This is to fulfil Government requirements.


***** Holy Hour - Adoration before the Eucharist *****

Every Tuesday 12 Noon to 1:00pm Holy Rosary Church will be open for an hour of Prayer and Adoration. Parishioners are invited come to pray, for your needs, for the Parish generally and 

especially for those involved in the Parish Evangelisation Program, ALPHA.


*****Parish School of Religion - Volunteers Needed*****

Parish School of Religion:  Prepares children attending non-Catholic schools for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation.
WHEN: From 9:00am to 9:50AM on about 30 Sundays per year. 
QUALIFICATIONS: A love of the Catholic Faith - You do not need to be a School Teacher or Theologian to take this on.  Good teaching resources are available. Mentors are available.
CLASS SIZE: Typically 3 to 6 – really great kids.
REMUNERATION: "Come ... blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world ... just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ 
URGENCY: Due to illness, Rosary is now down to 2 ‘teachers’; we desperately need volunteers for 2021.
