Due to restrictions imposed by the State Government, we are no longer allowed to celebrate public Masses and no one is allowed in the Church for private prayer.

The Community Centre remains closed and no activities are being held there.

Our Secretaries are not allowed to work in the Parish Office so the office is only open when Fr John is present. It would be advisable to phone before coming to the office if you would like to speak to Father. The office will be closed on Wednesdays.

Financial Matters

Our Parish has always relied on the generosity of Parishioners to support the Priest and the expenses of running the Parish. At present our main income is from Credit Card contributors. If you usually contribute to the Thanksgiving Program by using Envelopes, you can either post these to the Parish Office or deliver them. At this stage the Office is still operating as normal.

If you would like to support the Parish Priest you can donate to the Presbytery Account. You can leave your donation at the Office or deposit directly into the following account:

Account name: St Leonards Parish Presbytery Account

BSB: 083 347 Account Number: 34509 3839            Reference: Your Name - Donation

To donate to the Church Account by direct deposit, the details are:

Account Name: St Leonards Parish Church Account

BSB: 083 347 Account Number: 33840 9970          Reference: Your Name - Planned giving Number

Alternatively, you can set up a payment by Direct Debit or Credit Card via this link: CDFpay for St Leonard's Parish, Glen Waverley

Receipts for Thanksgiving donations

Thank you to all those who supported the Parish through donations to our Thanksgiving Program.

Receipts for the financial year ending on the 30/06/2020 are now available at the Parish Office. Your envelopes for the new financial year are also available for collection.

Columban Calendars

Due to the uncertainty about when we will be able to celebrate Mass with a full congregation, we will not be placing a bulk order for Columban Calendars this year. We will order calendars for any Parishioners who wish to purchase one. Please place your order with the Parish Office or with Charmaine before the end of October.

Upcoming Events


By appointment, contact Presbytery for details.

We welcome Parishioners who would like to have their children baptised in our Parish. Before making any arrangements, families must attend a Preparation Meeting which is usually held in the Yarn on the last Monday of the month. (Bookings are essential for this meeting).  After attending this meeting, families can arrange a date for the Baptism with Fr John.

Baptisms are usually celebrated on the second and third Sunday of the month.

Anyone interested in arranging a Baptism should first speak to Fr John.


The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima moves around the Parish week to week so that the Rosary is said continuously throughout the year. Parish families volunteer to take on this task which has been a part of Parish life for many years.

First Communion

The Sacrament of First Eucharist is usually celebrated in June each year. Children must be Baptised Catholics and be in Year 4 (or older) and must have already the received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

We are not sure when we will be able to celebrate the Sacrament this year.


 Any students wishing to receive the Sacrament must be Baptised Catholics and must have already received the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation. Students are usually in Year 6 or older. This year's date has been deferred until restrictions are lifted.


We welcome couples who would like to be married in our beautiful Church.

Please speak to Fr John. (The Secretary cannot help you with marriage enquiries.)
