Thursday 5th August 2021
My dear people,
It is with great sadness that we all heard the news that the state of Victoria is going into lockdown from 8pm tonight.
As announced by the Premier, Places of Worship are closed except for broadcasting.
This means that all Masses are cancelled until the end of the day on Thursday 12th August 2021.
We will resume the livestreaming of daily Masses at the following times on our YouTube channel:
Friday 6th August 2021: 9:30 am,
Saturday 7th August 2021: 9:30 am,
Sunday 8th August 2021: 9:00 am,
Monday 9th August 2021: 9:30 am,
Tuesday 10th August 2021: 9:30 am,
Wednesday 11th August 2021: 9:30 am, and
Thursday 12th August 2021: 9:30 am,
As usual, Masses can be watched at any time after that.
While we will not be with each other in person we know that our spiritual bonds persist through the lockdown and we continue to pray for each other at this difficult time.
We continue turning to our patron saint and we ask for her intercession.
St Catherine of Siena, Pray for us.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Fr Richard Rosse PP

My dear people,
As you are aware, we are again able to gather for the celebration of Mass albeit with a maximum number of 100 people present.
Please visit our website https://www.stcatherinecarolinesprings.org.au/ to book your seat to attend the weekend Masses. Since only 100 people can attend Mass, we will continue using the online booking system for the Vigil (Saturday evening) and Sunday Masses. [Read more]

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING
Two super exciting bible studies have just started in the parish.
1. JESUS: THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE is a 10 week course that runs fortnightly on Tuesdays at 7:45pm in the church meeting rooms. This course provides us with an opportunity to explore the life of Jesus in a deeper way through the Gospels and draws upon Jesus' fulfilment of the old testament in the hope that we can come to know him better and love him more.

2. UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE is an 8 week course that runs weekly on Thursdays at 7pm in the church meeting rooms. This course makes reading the bible approachable and simple as it follows the one story of salvation history. To register, please click here: https://www.trybooking.com/BSGMZ
