News and Announcements

13th June, 2021

Third Sunday after Pentecost


Current COVID regulations: as things currently stand, the Victorian Government regulations allow only 50 people to attend Mass. We do not know when this requirement will be lifted. From Monday – Saturday, the Faithful will be admitted as they arrive, up to the prescribed limit. For Mass today (Sunday 13th June) and (presumably) next Sunday, it is necessary to book a place in advance. The Sunday schedule has been altered today and next Sunday to provide an extra Mass. Those who have not booked a place at Sunday Mass will not be admitted by the porters. Details of how to book via Trybooking have been sent by email to all registered Parishioners of the Newman Parish.

“Pilgrim” Statue of St Joseph: during this Year of St Joseph, the Statue of St Joseph which is in the custody of the Sodality of St Joseph, will be available for visits of up to one week, to families of the Parish, or individual parishioners. To book a time this year to receive St Joseph’s statue, please email Tony Francis: or visit http://sjs.newmanparish.org

Introduction to Liturgical Latin: Fr Arthur will be hosting weekly classes which will serve as a starting point for better understanding the Latin liturgy. No previous knowledge of Latin is assumed. Due to current COVID restrictions, we regret the commencement of this class has had to be delayed. We now hope to be able to start on Wednesday, 23rd June. The class remains open for registration – please email the Secretary to secure a place.

Guild of St Clare: The Guild is open to members who are interested in the repair, design, and manufacture of vestments and altar linens. We are hoping to meet in the near future with intentions of making some items for our Sanctuary. Please contact the Secretary for more information.

The Cathedral is not fully reopening this week, so we are not able to hold Mass there this Wednesday. Our current expectation is to be able to re-commence Mass at the Cathedral on Wednesday, 23rd June
