COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE (23/3/20)
Bishop Vincent Long has advised: “Prime Minister Scott Morrison last night said that churches, religious gatherings, and places of worship are to close by midday today, 23 March 2020. These new rules must be adhered to and there are no exceptions to these rules … Public Masses (both indoor and outdoor), baptisms, funerals and weddings must now cease.”
St Luke’s Catholic Faith Community, Marsden Park, therefore will not be able to gather physically for Mass and other Sacraments at this time.
However, we can still remain in contact with each other. Please go to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stlukesmarsdenpark/ and ‘like’ the page so that you can be kept up-to-date with ways that we develop to keep connected.
The Diocese of Parramatta has made available access to the site ‘Liturgy Help’ to assist you and your family to pray: www.liturgyhelp.com/aus/parra/pray
As a reminder, Catholics from the Diocese of Parramatta are from 20 March 2020 dispensed from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice (Canon 1248 §2 and Catechism 2181.)
May you be aware, even more than ever at this time, of the great depth of love that God has for you and the graces and blessings offered to you through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Blessing to you and your families.
Deacon Tony Hoban
Welcome to St Luke's
Catholic Faith Community
St Luke's is Australia's newest Catholic Church community, located in Marsden Park, western Sydney, within the Diocese of Parramatta.
The community came into being with the appointment of Deacon Tony Hoban as Pastoral Director on January 1, 2018. Supported by his wife, Annette, and a start-up Advisory Group, planning has begun for the life of the new community. The intention is to develop a community of intentional disciples of Jesus Christ, working in collaboration with St Luke's College. Our gathering place for Mass and other events will be at St Luke's Catholic College, Frontier Avenue, Marsden Park. We are looking for people who desire to grow in faith within a supportive community to join us.
We acknowledge that the Darug people were the original custodians of the land on which we operate. We pay our respects to elders past and present, and acknowledge the Aboriginal people for their custodianship of this land.
