We have all been watching news on the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, across the world and here in Australia.  These are incredibly challenging times for us all and our Bishop, Michael McCarthy, has been responding as the situation develops here in Australia.  Bishop Michael has made the difficult decision to suspend Masses and Liturgies at this time.  Below you can find the Bishop’s pastoral letters and updates to date, including details for the streaming of Holy Week and Easter services.

Also below you can find resources to date to help you personally during this time.  More resources will be added to support our community as they come to hand.
