Dear Parishioners,

May the peace of Christ be with you. The acting Premier, James Merlino has announced the gradual reopening of greater Melbourne from 11.59 tonight. From Friday 11th June, up to 50 people can participate in religious activities in person.

In St John’s Parish, no booking shall be required for Sunday and weekday masses; whereas in St Francis Xavier parish, booking shall be required for Sunday masses only.

If you which to participate in Mass in St Francis Xavier church this coming Sunday, send an email to the parish office containing the names and phone numbers of those you wish to register for the mass. Also indicate the mass times. You may also call the parish office on 97893484 to book for mass.

All participants at mass are required to sign in at the church using the QR Code whether they had pre-booked or not. For those who do not have mobile phones or their mobile phones do not recognise the QR Code, Samsung Tablets have been purchased to sign them in.

From Monday 14th June, parishioners of St Francis Xavier church would be able to book for Sunday masses from the parish website.

I wish to bring to the attention of all the families whose sons and daughters have prepared to receive the Sacrament of Eucharist for the first time this year that due to the limited number of people participating at mass at the moment, the First Eucharist is still suspended until further notice. New dates will be announced in the near future. I regret the inconveniences.


Please a gentle reminder that wearing of masks are mandatory both outside and inside the church. Let us keep on praying for the end of this pandemic.


I remain yours in Christ,


Fr Chinua Okeke CSSp,

Parish Priest
