Sacramental Preparation

Information Packs and Registration Forms for children not attending our Parish Schools who wish to join our catechist classes to prepare for the their 1st Reconciliation, 1st Communion or Confirmation are available from  Fr. Bill after Mass or the Parish Office.

Closing dates for registration: Reconciliation March 1; Communion March 29; Confirmation June 21.

Transport to Mass

If you, or someone you know, needs transport to Mass please contact the Parish Office.

Have a think about those who once walked to Mass at Mary Immaculate and may now need a lift to Mother of God.


We are now able to take Holy Communion to the sick and house-bound and are also in the process of returning to our regular ministry to The Views Aged Care and BlueCross.        Those who were Communion Ministers prior to the Covid 19 shutdown are asked to let Fr. Bill know if they are happy to recommence their ministry as a Communion Minister.           Because we have lost several of our Communion Ministers over the months of the Covid 19 shutdown, through a variety of different circumstances, we need new volunteers to take up this ministry. Please contact Fr. Bill if you are interested.      Training and support is provided for all who volunteer for this important and essential parish ministry.
