Multimedia / Singing & Masks
For at least this weekend and next there will be no hymns at Mass and no multimedia presentation.

Children’s Liturgy - Praying with Children,  11th Sunday in Ordinary Time,   HERE

First Communion Masses
Because of the current Covid 19 Shutdown both the St. Bernadette’s School 1st Communion Mass and the Catechist Class 1st Communion Mass have had to be cancelled. As yet we have no clear indication as to when they can be rescheduled. Once restrictions are lifted and we have a clearer picture of our options we will advise families of rescheduled Masses.
Preparation for Confirmation

Registration for children wishing to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation close on June 21.

Parish Calendar 2021  HERE


Multimedia Presenters Invited

We also need more volunteers to share in the ministry of presenting our weekly multimedia at each weekend Mass. Training will be given in presenting Multimedia liturgies.  Want to know more or happy to assist - email the parish office 

Transport to Mass

If you, or someone you know, needs transport to Mass please contact the Parish Office.

Have a think about those who once walked to Mass at Mary Immaculate and may now need a lift to Mother of God.
