Dear Parishioners of St Mary’s Cathedral and Sacred Heart Communities,
It is with a heavy heart that the Archdiocese of Hobart is implementing measures to stem the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID 19). Archbishop Julian Porteous has suspended the public celebration of all Masses, for an indefinite period. In light of the above decision, I kindly request you to honour the Lord’s Day and the Holy Week by dedicating your time to family prayer, reflections on scripture and other spiritual exercises. In view of this I have provided relevant prayers and scripture readings that you could use from home and pray together with your family especially during the forthcoming Holy Week.
You may participate in Sunday Masses and Holy Week Masses via the links provided in the front page of the news letter. This live streaming of Sunday Masses and Holy Week Masses could also be accessed via our St. Mary’s Cathedral website and on our Facebook page (Cathedral Parish Hobart - St Mary's Cathedral & Sacred Heart Church).
However, in case of emergency, you may contact me directly on my mobile 0417 571 815 (text preferred – leave your name & contact number) or ring the parish office number 6234 4463.
The Lord’s mercy endures forever!
