Weekend Mass at St Therese's

Online Masses during Holy Week and Easter

During the COVID-19 emergency we have been directed to shut the church and suspend all public Masses. 

 

Dear Friends at St Therese’s Parish, 

As we move into Holy Week, on this rather different Palm Sunday, we invite you to join in with our virtual liturgical celebrations for today, where Mass is accessible on the parish website.  During the week, there will also be available for participation,  Mass of the Lord’s Supper for Holy Thursday evening, Commemoration of the Passion on Good Friday, and Stations of the Cross, contemporary and traditional versions, the latter with images from the Stations in our parish church, already uploaded for viewing, prayer and reflection, at your convenience.  There will also be an Easter Mass on line from Holy Saturday.
