Notice from Fr Anthony

Dear Parishioners,

While we have entered into stage 4 restrictions please be aware that our Sunday and Wednesday Masses will still be streamed online, and Funeral Masses with no more than 10 mourners are permissible. Unfortunately Baptisms and Weddings are not to take place until further notice. At this time priests are only permitted to provide Holy Communion (Viaticum) and Anointing of the Sick to parishioners in grave mortal danger.

Our Deacon Simeon was contacted by the Seminary Rector during the week informing him, along with the other deacons, that their ordination to the priesthood is postponed. The new date is yet to be decided. Please keep him and all the other deacons and seminarians in your prayers.

One message that is being spoken about often is the need for people to remain in contact with others. It is a very challenging time for people who are isolated to feel connected to others. If you know of anyone in these circumstances please call them or let us know at the presbytery and we will make a ‘Pastoral Phone Call’. Furthermore the Cells of Evangelisation have extended an invitation for anyone who would like to join them for a cells meeting at any time. All the contact details are listed below. Feel free to contact me if you would like further information about Cell Groups.

And finally, earlier this year we gave short extracts about the lives of Saints who suffered serious illnesses. We thought we might include a few more of these over the coming weeks to bolster people’s faith and spirits.

God Bless, Fr Anthony Girolami.

Masses will be streamed each Sunday at 9.00 am and each Wednesday at 8:00 am.

Catechist Classes

We have not been able to begin our catechist classes this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are still planning on delivering lessons, in the hope that restrictions will allow for us to celebrate the sacraments at the end of this year. As such, we have decided to restructure our classes so that children are prepared for the sacraments.


In term three we will begin lessons. For the ongoing safety of the children and families we have decided that the first 6 weeks of lessons will be provided for children and families to complete at home. We will post workbooks to you to complete. The final 4 lessons will be delivered face to face at the Church, providing government restrictions allow us to do so. We anticipate that home lessons will begin on the week beginning the 20th of July and continue until the end of August.


Unfortunately, at this stage we do not have any specific dates set for catechist or St Francis sacraments. Fr Anthony, in partnership with Bishop Terry Curtin is currently developing a revised sacramental schedule for parish children for both First Eucharist and Confirmation. Our intention is to celebrate both of these sacraments during term 4, as long as it is safe and permissible to do so. As soon as dates have been finalized by Fr Anthony and ratified by Bishop Curtin we will notify families immediately.


If you wish for your child to participate in the sacramental program this year please email millpark@cam.org.au . If you have not yet filled in an enrolment form or paid the enrolment fee please complete the relevant forms which can be found under the 'Application Forms' tab above and send back to us as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued flexibility and support in this matter. If you have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to call the parish office on 9407 6701.
