Upcoming Events


Covid 19 – Update for Parishioners, 10th June 2021.

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

As you are aware the Victorian Government and the Victorian Public Health Office have eased restrictions for Greater Melbourne as of 11.59pm from 10th June 2021.  This will mean some changes for St Peter Julian Eymard as follows:-

MASKS must be worn inside our Church

Social distancing still remains and must be adhered to at all Masses.

  1. Mass numbers are restricted to 50 people for this weekend and we are hopeful that we can return to increased numbers by 18th June.  This will mean that we are unable to have our regular numbers at Masses so registrations will be necessary.  Please understand that some people may miss out on Masses this weekend and we sadly regret this, but we must adhere to these restrictions to keep everyone safe.

  2. To register for all three Masses this weekend.  Please ring or preferably text Bernadette Brown on 0447743138 for 6.00pm Mass and Margaret Vallence on 0403568302 for 9.00am Mass.  Please leave a message with your name, the number of people attending Mass and a contact number as we will have to contact you to confirm your attendance. Please contact Adriana De Leo for 11.00am Mass on 9723 4275, please leave a message for Adriana and it will be sent as an email.

  3. The new mandatory inclusion is the Services Victoria QR Code that will came into effect on 28th May 2021.  This is the only QR code that should be used when entering our Church and we ask that you bring your mobile phone with you.  If you or your phone do not have the capacity to download this app or sign in to this code, we will have people at each Mass who will be able to either step you through this or sign you in using an IPad.

  4. We have included the new QR Code in the Newsletter, so if you would like to sign in prior to coming to the Church, i.e. in your home or in the carpark, you will save time and avoid blockages in the Church Foyer.

  5. Hand sanitizing is still an essential part of our Covid Safe Plan and by following all of the advice above, this will keep you and our parish community safe and is critical to allowing our Church to remain open.

We acknowledge that this again is a challenging time for you all.  The Parish Leadership Team thanks you for your patience and understanding. We are all in this together and if we all do the right thing, we can and will get through this again.

God Bless

Parish Leadership Team




 Everyone attending Mass must sanitize their hands on entering the Church and ensure they are seated in the pews, couples and family groups (who share a household) can sit together ensuring 1.5 meters distance from others sharing a row.
