Important Update – Our Parish Priest, Fr Wayne Coughlin, is required to self-isolate and in accordance with Government and Diocesan guidelines needs to suspend all public ministry.  Consequently (both public and livestream celebrations of the) Mass will not offered until further notice.  Mass is available via livestream from our Diocesan Cathedral and can accessed via its website.  Both Churches of our community and the Parish Office are closed at this time.  Fr Wayne very much looks forward to resuming the public celebration of the Mass and the other sacraments ASAP.  He will celebrate Mass privately each day for your intentions.

Livestream Masses are available from our Diocesan Cathedral – see link below or via the website.
