In response to the latest directives announced by Government (2 & 3 August 2020)

There is now an overarching guide for the use of face coverings across Victoria and two separate areas of General Directives depending on location.

Under no circumstances should anyone awaiting test verification, including Clergy or Deacons, (even without presenting symptoms) attend a church or parish setting until a diagnosis is confirmed.  Additionally, under no circumstances should anyone attend who is closely connected to people who are awaiting test results or who have tested positive.

During this Stage 4 Lock down, the Parish Office will be unattended.  Should you need to contact Fr Raj or the Parish Office, please do so by telephoning the Parish Office  on 9357 1422  or email us at . We will attend to your call as soon as possible.  For urgent matters please contact 0402 249 117.

Fr Raj will continue to celebrate private Masses and if you have any Mass intentions, please ring the Parish Office  and leave details or email us with your intentions. 

Please stay safe, stay home (except for the four permitted reasons to leave home) and stay connected to your Parish either through our web page, by phone or email.

During this time of physical isolation, all Masses at St Patrick’s Cathedral will continue to be live streamed on the Archdiocesan YouTube channel (Mon-Fri 1.00pm, Sat 8.00am and Sun 11.00am) and on TV Channel 44 at 11.00am on Sundays.

"Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."  Deuteronomy 31:6      


The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue, and inner life. Such devotion is an incentive to a similar love and virtue.

On October 31, 1942, Pope Pius XII made a solemn Act of Consecration of the Church and the whole world to the Immaculate Heart.  Let us remember this devotion year-round, but particularly through the month of August.
