Booking and Attending Mass

In order to limit our numbers and keep everybody safe, you will now need to book in advance of attending Mass. We have also created a set of rules for attending Mass, that will help protect you and others. Please view our “attending Mass” page below.

This Week’s Live Streams

Don’t forget that the Sunday Mass will still be live streamed via Facebook and our website at 10am, followed by Children’s Liturgy at 11:30am.

This week’s Gospel is from Matthew 22: 15-21.

This week, we see the Pharisees plotting how they might entrap Jesus into speech that will cause him trouble. They ask Jesus if they should they pay the census tax to Caesar…? We then receive Jesus’ powerful response.

Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” 

Pope Francis reflects on the question posed by the Pharisees, and notices Jesus draws a more radical and vital question for each of us, a question we can ask ourselves: to whom do I belong? To family, to the city, to friends, to work, to politics, to the State?
