Book for Masses using Trybooking

Updated Wednesday, 8th July 2020

Bacchus Marsh is not part of metropolitan Melbourne and therefore not subject to the lock-down. Masses will therefore continue to be celebrated at St Bernard's. During this period, Fr Marcus will be resident with Fr Lucas at St Bernard's. From Tuesday 14th July 2020, two Masses will be offered from Tuesday to Friday.

To ensure we comply with Archdiocesan and Government safety measures, all Mass attendees will be required to produce their license or other document indicating their place of residence to be admitted entrance to the Church.

People from locked-down suburbs cannot be admitted entrance and should not attempt to book for Mass.

We are able to accommodate 20 people at each Mass. We are now using TryBooking to facilitate registration for Masses at St Bernard’s. To register for Mass, click the button below:

Parishioners who do not have access to the internet can continue to register for Mass using our dedicated registration phone number 0432 055 992.

Parishioners are welcome to attend Mass as frequently as you like.

Confessions will be heard for half an hour prior to the start of each Mass.

From Tuesday, 14th July 2020 Masses are being offered at St Bernard’s at the following times:

Sunday  8.30am & 10.00am 
Tuesday 7.30am & 6.00pm
Wednesday  7.30am & 9.30am
Thursday 7.30am & 6.00pm
Friday 7.30am & 9.30am
Saturday 5.00pm (Vigil) 

We thank you for your cooperation during this very challenging time and look forward to seeing you at St Bernard’s.
