As of 23rd March 2020 the Church is temporarily closed for Public Worship by Government Mandate until further notice on account of Clovid – 19 Virus.
Diocesan Protocols are available above for your perusal.
Although God’s faithful are not permitted to attend Mass, Catholics should still spend some time in prayer on Sunday. We encourage the faithful to make a spiritual communion while sacramental communion is unavailable. Prayers such as the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross, at home, are most beneficial at this trying time.

Fifth Sunday of Lent
Lazarus & Resurrection
There was a growing conviction among the people that the messianic
times had now arrived, first through the Baptist’s testimony, then through the words and signs performed by Jesus, especially because of the raising of
Lazarus, which had occurred a few days before the entry into Jerusalem.
The miracle is a response to the faith of Martha and Mary; it arouses
faith in the disciples. The miracle was the catalyst that leads to Calvary. It
would provoke Jesus’ arrest and demise on the Cross. Death is not the worst
thing in the world but the cause of death, that is sin. Christ died for our
sins and rose again, unlike Lazarus in a glorified body. We too, if we are faithful promised with him the bodily resurrection that awaits
