Children’s Liturgy - Praying with Children, 2nd Sunday of Advent,  5 December    HERE

The Praying with Children material that we posted on our website during the Covid Shutdown is once more available. It can be accessed on our website each weekend. The download is a wonderful way of engaging children in the Sunday Gospel.

This Weekend Special Collection

Our special collection after each Mass this weekend is the annual collection to support the Church’s ministry to the deaf, especially the work of the

John Pierce Centre.



Our normal Mass schedule has resumed with the addition of an extra Mass every Saturday morning at 9.15am at Mother of God.

Please help our ushers by being early for Mass so that we can ensure everyone is checked in and ready to participate before Mass begins.

Confessions have also resumed each Saturday. At Mother of God at the new time of 9.45am (following the 9.15am Mass) and at 5.30pm at St. Bernadette’s.

Currently, to attend Mass, those over 16 must be fully vaccinated and have their certificate (either digital or paper version or a medical exemption).

For those who still feel unable to attend Mass I encourage you to use the online Masses provided by our Cathedral.
