Mass and Staying In Touch through the Roadmap

When can I come to Mass?


A welcome return to Mass 

With the latest opening up of restrictions there is no limit on the number of people who can be in attendance at Mass. 

  The following will assist to prepare for your Mass attendance:

· QR code check-in using the Services Victoria app will continue to be a requirement.

Please arrive 5 or 10 minutes earlier than you normally would.

When you arrive:

· Enter via the Narthex

· See a Check-in-Marshal: provide proof of full vaccination and QR code your attendance

· Sanitise prior to entering

· Mask wearing is optional

· Practice Social distancing where possible


Fellow Parishioners will be volunteering as Covid Marshals and Covid Check-in Marshals at all our weekend Masses for the foreseeable future. Please assist them as much as you can to undertake their important public health role. Your patience and understanding as we implement these requirements will be appreciated.


The 11am Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral  is  available to view on free-to-air TV via C31 (channel 44 on digital TV). Also Masses are livestreamed daily on the Archdiocesan YouTube channel

The Archdiocese issues regular updates to their guidelines as changes in restrictions are announced. When we receive new guidelines we notify parishioners by email about what the procedures will be for attending services in the church.

How can I stay updated?

We send an email update from the parish every Friday. To make sure you're up-to-date, please notify the office with your email address.

Yes. Regular meetings have been moved to Zoom:

  • Lectio Divina is meeting every couple of weeks, on Monday night and Tuesday Morning. This is a beautiful way to share a prayerful approach to scripture, and you can find details and links through the events tab on our Facebook page.
