Masses have now resumed but with a new round of restrictions.

A maximum of 20 fully vaccinated people can attend Mass. Bookings are essential and you must provide proof of vaccination. The easiest way of doing this is by adding your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app. Otherwise you have to show a printed copy of your certificate every time you attend Mass and the details have to be recorded.

Wearing masks is still mandatory in Church, except for those with an exemption. Only two people from a household can book for Sunday Mass (unless people are involved in a ministry).

The Victorian Government has made it mandatory for people to use the QR Code every time they enter the Church. 

If you are not able to use the QR Code, you can ask someone else to enter your name and phone number on their phone, or you can ask the Covid Marshall to do this for you. But you must provide proof of your vaccination.

If we do reach our maximum number at any Mass or if Covid Marshalls are not on duty, the doors will be closed.

 All COVID safe regulations still apply - masks, social distancing, designated seats etc. You must use sanitiser when entering or leaving the Church and also before receiving Communion

We urgently need volunteers to check people in before Mass and also require Readers and Leaders.

Children's Liturgy at Home

The Ready, Set, Pray! Children's Liturgy of the Word @ home video series has been created to provide an engaging space for families to encounter Jesus through the Sunday gospel.

Each week includes an invitation for families to create and gather in their own prayer space, to sing, hear the Gospel, pray and respond creatively through an activity. This weekly resource follows the familiar Children's Liturgy of the Word format used in the Parish - but moved to an online setting.

The series consists of weekly sessions of 15-20 minutes duration each Sunday until Christmas. We hope this experience of gathering for prayer will encourage families in this time when they cannot gather for Parish celebrations of Eucharist. It is produced by Proclaim: The Office for Mission Renewal at the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

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.



 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.)
