Online registration remains essential to ensure attendance at Sunday Mass.

A Pontifical Requiem Mass of the month’s mind will be offered at St Aloysius’ on Saturday, 18th July, at 10.00 am (TBC), for the repose of the soul of Bishop John Basil Meeking. The Celebrant will be Bishop Peter J. Elliott.

Winter School – Postponed by One Week: intended especially for University undergraduates (though open to all), we will be sponsoring a Winter School from Monday 6th July – Friday 10th July. The key class is “The Quarrel Between the Ancients & Moderns: an introduction through Gulliver’s Travels.” The class will be led by Dr Martin Black, and will be held at St Aloysius’ School Hall from 3.00 – 5.00 pm each day. Dr Black will also be teaching a critical course on Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil, on five successive Wednesdays (beginning 8th July) at St Aloysius’ Hall, from 7.00 – 9.00 pm. The fee structure is as follows: 1 Course: $100 (waged) or $50 (concessions, including students). 2 Courses: $150 (waged) or $75 (concessions, including students). Registration: please email

Altar Service: all male Catholics who have made their First Holy Communion are eligible and welcome to serve at the Altar. Those under 18 require parental permission. Those aged 18 and over must provide a current Working with Children Card. We are currently seeking and training new servers. Generally, training is available at 11 am Saturdays, and 9 am Sundays, but other times can also be arranged.
