Give us ears to listen humbly to each other and a discerning heart to hear what you are saying. Lead your Church into a hope-filled future, that we may live the joy of the Gospel. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, bread for the journey from age to age. Amen. Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us. St Mary MacKillop, pray for us.



Low Gluten Hosts at Mass

Coeliac Disease is a condition that effects over 1% of the Australian population and this parish understands the hardships that this can bring to those who suffer from this disease. Low gluten hosts are consecrated at each Sunday Mass, or at a previous Mass, and will be distributed by Father Dominic. Should you want such a host, do approach him at communion and ask for a Low Gluten Host as you receive Communion. Similarly, the Precious Blood does not have a fragment of High Gluten host in it, as that has been left in a Chalice at the Altar.  

                                            The Sacraments

Confirmation (West Wyalong)

The Sacrament of Baptism

It is a requirement that you fill out a form in preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism. This is available to you from the 'Application Forms' page. We ask that it is filled out and handed in to the Office at least one week before the Sacrament is celebrated so we are able fill out the Certificate. 

The initial part of the Sacrament is called the 'Welcoming Ceremony.' It is the people of God (the Parishioners) who welcome the person into the Church because the People of God are his Church. The Catholic Church recognises everybody that has been Baptised to be the Church. This is why we strongly recommend that each Baptism take place during the Sunday Mass when the people of God are then able to welcome the newly Baptised person into their community, into the body of Christ. We are all united by the gift of His Spirit given to us at Baptism, allowing God to see himself in each of us and recognise us as His children. This is how we are given the 'Spirit of adoption.'

When people ask for a Private Baptism they are asking to remain a part from the people of God, the parishioners. The Sacrament of Baptism joins people to the body of Christ who are the parishioners of the Parish. To ask for a Private Baptism suggests that gathering together each Sunday as the Body of Christ is not wanted. Receiving the Spirit of God ensures that we should feel welcomed into what really must be recognised as our home, the Church. How can people want Baptism and not want to be part of God’s People? They can when they do not know what they want nor know what Baptism truly is and not understand what it cost Jesus, so that we could be Baptised in his Name after He was Baptised in Blood.


Baptism is thought of as a ‘Gateway Sacrament,’ because once you have received this sacrament you are then able to receive all the other Sacraments. Some people though do not understand that once you have received this sacrament you should be considering, not just the other Sacraments of Initiation, but all the sacraments because, made in His Image, we are a Sacred People ("a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people..." Pt. 2: 9) who need to be kept Holy. 

People will often ask that we Baptise their child but by virtue of living unmarried with their partner they are saying that they do not want the Sacrament of Matrimony (meaning, mother making). Others ask for Baptism but do not regularly attend Sunday Mass and never receive the Sacrament Reconciliation, which is closely related to Baptism. This suggests that they want one Sacrament but not another. This is disheartening and plainly confusing, given that the Eucharist is "the Source and Summit of the Christian Life". It seems to say that after we have received Baptism we are not going to accept any personal responsibility for ownership. When we have received the very Spirit of God we are then to exercise this gift, given to us through the expense of Jesus’ Passion. This was so that we would come to understand the Love of the Father and with that come to be one with the Father (Jn. 17: 20-26).


The role of the Godparents, “with the parents [is] to present the child for baptism, and to help it to live a Christian life befitting the baptised and faithfully to fulfil the duties inherent in baptism” (Canon 872). The Father and the Mother of the child to be baptised cannot be a Godparent (Canon 874, 5o).
