Update on the numbers able to attend Mass

Posted by on Jul 3, 2020 in News & Events | 0 comments

From 1 July 2020 the number of people permitted to attend Masses and other church services is determined by the 4 square meter distancing rule.

All Masses will continue to be celebrated in Sacred Heart Church (entry via main entrance only). Bookings for weekend Masses should continue to be made through the Parish Office by phoning 6672 1118  on Tuesday & Wednesday 9 am to 3 pm or by email to shpmbah@norex.com.au. Alternatively you...

We ask everyone to light a candle, and pray for all the Anzac’s, as we stand silently in remembrance. Many of our fallen heroes throughout the years, were young and never had the chance to have families of...

STAYING CONNECTED DURING COVID-19 CRISIS If you can, please reach out – stay connected – with each other – perhaps phone someone who normally sits near you at Mass to say hello; text or email someone to see how they’re getting on.
