It is unfortunate that we have just been informed that the Relics visit to WA has been cancelled, due to the developing public health situation with Covid-19.
We will keep you posted for any new development.
Infant Jesus Parish together with Catholic Mission are preparing to receive the relics of St Therese of Lisieux once again and also those of her parents, Sts Louis and Zelie Martin, at Infant Jesus Church in 2020. More details in the coming months.
Please spread the word….
The visit of the relics, we know from experience, will be a very significant event for people from around the Archdiocese and so we are expecting, once again, large crowds. We need you to help us create a spirit of true hospitality and welcome for our guests. Please volunteer to be part of our Relics Visit Team. There is a registration form in the foyer, we ask you to sign up today or call parish office on 9276 8500 to help with tasks large and small.

Each day the Coronavirus pandemic affects us more and more. As of midday we will close the church in accordance with the directives of the Federal Government. This will be a sad loss for many of us.
Instead of lamenting what we do not have we need now to nourish the sources of our faith, hope and love at home.
1. We need to pray in ways that strengthen our personal relationship with Jesus. Our prayer can begin with being relaxed, silent and aware of the presence of the Lord with us. We need to have a sense of allowing ourselves to be known, affirmed and loved by God. Prayer is a dynamic relationship. It begins with a basic trust in the love of God, it grows in humble fidelity and creative love. What happens then is up to us and God’s Holy Spirit.
2. We need to read the Scriptures and quietly let them speak to us and then to reflect on them. A good place to start is to read the Scripture readings for each day from the mass and to meditate on them.
3. We also need to reflect on the liturgy of Holy Week and Easter by reading the Readings and prayers of the ceremonies. The prayers of the liturgy are a balanced spiritual diet. Over time they change how we see God and ourselves and how we pray.
4. The mass is essentially a wonderful prayer of thanksgiving to God for all he has given us in Christ. To be a Eucharistic Christian is to be grateful for the life we have been given. Not the life we might have had in our dreams but the life we have been given, we need to be grateful for everything.
To find the daily scripture readings online a good starting place is bibleclaret.org/liturgy/ it contains commentary and food for reflection.
I will make available the texts for all the Holy Week Masses and ceremonies closer to Palm Sunday.
If you want to follow a celebration of the mass online there are a number of sites with masses from different places. If you know Italian you can follow Pope Francis’s daily mass as it is live streamed. If you want an English translation and summary go to https://www.vaticannews.va/…/mass-casa-santa-marta.pagelist…
I can also recommend the mass of Fr Kevin Bates, one of my teachers, who is now a parish priest in Sydney. His parish has a YouTube page https://
Each day Frs Tadgh, John Pallipaddan and I concelebrate the Eucharist in our priory chapel. We pray especially for all our parishioners and all who suffer as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic anywhere in the world,
In response to the government measures for ‘social distancing’, the parish has decided to suspend all group activities from today until further notice.
Following parish groups have been suspended:

Following the directive from the Archbishop, the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation (First Rite) scheduled on our Church for every Saturday will be suspended from this weekend until further notice. However please contact Frs Greg, Tadgh and John for individual requests for the Sacrament.
The directive from the Archdiocese regarding to the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation is as follow:
Only the First Rite of Penance (individual confession and absolution) can be celebrated, because of the restrictions on numbers. Priest will do their best to respond to individual requests for the Sacrament, but it is not possible to establish and publicise particular times when the sacrament will be available. People who identify within themselves the need for confession should contact their parish clergy. It is also important to remember that in these extraordinary circumstances we are still able to come before God in sorrow and seek his forgiveness, confident that he is “full of mercy and compassion”. As I said above many things are changing, but God’s compassion, mercy and forgiveness never change. – Pastoral letter dated 24 March

The current COVID-19 pandemic preventative measures have preclude the normal community celebration of Holy Week. The Christian communities in the Holy Land, also exposed to the risk of contagion and living in contexts already full of serious sufferings, benefit every year from the generosity of the faithful from all over the world. This solidarity enables them to continue their evangelical presence, in addition to maintaining schools and social structures that assist all citizens with healthcare, education and peaceful coexistence, attending above all to the weakest and poorest. For this reason, Pope Francis has approved the proposal that the Collection for the Holy Land, for the year 2020, to take place on Sunday 13th September, near the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.Continue Reading →
