Services this Week

This Sunday, 27 November, we will celebrate the the first Sunday of Advent, the start of the Church’s year. There are two masses on Sunday: the 8 am mass, which is just a simple said mass taking around 40 minutes; and the 10 am mass, which is a solemn sung mass, starting with the asperges, the sprinkling of holy water, and also has hymns and incense, taking just over an hour. There is morning tea after the Solemn Mass. There are masses every day except Monday, Fr Scott’s day off.
