Message from Archbishop Peter A. Comensoli 

'Be sensitive to the ways we can care for each other.'

Each of us is undoubtedly feeling a sense of anxiety and weariness as we enter deeper into this time of COVID-19 restrictions. In his latest video message, Archbishop Peter A Comensoli sends his prayers and support to all the faithful and encourages us to be sensitive to the ways in which we can care for and reach out to one another. Let us continue to keep each other close in prayer – especially all those caring for the most vulnerable in our community – and ask St Joseph, our great protector, to intercede for us to the Father.

Ordination to the Diaconate

We invite you to join us for the Ordination to the Diaconate of Alexander Hong Jiun Chow by Archbishop Peter A Comensoli on Saturday 8 August (Solemnity of St Mary MacKillop). 'God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.' — St John Henry Newman
