We are a community of over 10,000 Catholics across two Parishes, three Churches, a Parish Primary School and a Retirement Village

Holy Week and Easter

This year you are asked to assist us in the preparation of the Easter ceremonies by registering via TryBooking.  This will ensure that as many parishioners as possible can attend each of the ceremonies in a Covid safe environment.  Bookings are now open.

A Lenten Penitential Service will be held on Thursday, 18 March at 7.30 pm at Our Holy Redeemer Church, Surrey Hills.  Bookings are essential via TryBooking.
