The NSW government has announced a target for the easing of restrictions on churches for all of Greater Sydney, including
the Blue Mountains and Wollongong regions.
Churches will be closed to the public until the Monday after NSW passes the 80 percent target of residents having
had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
People attending churches will need to observe a four square metre rule, with the exception of people from the same household.
Join us every Sunday as we celebrate Holy Mass at 10.00am AEST.
Mass will be celebrated and streamed LIVE from the Bondi Catholic Facebook page. We invite you to gather your family around your device and pray with us. Please click on the link below to join us.
SOME TIPS TO CELEBRATE MASS AT HOME:
– get dressed as though you were going to church
– set up a Sacred Space with Holy Images and Cross or Crucifix and a Candle
– sing and pray along with the Priest by standing, sitting and kneeling when appropriate
– at the time of Concentration, make a spiritual act of Communion
Prayer in time of Coronavirus
God our Father, we come to You in our need to ask Your protection against the Cronavirus that has claimed lives and has affected many. We pray for Your grace for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause of this virus and its disease and of stemming the tide of its transmission. Guide the hands and minds of medical experts that they may minister to the sick with competence and compassion and of those governments and private agencies that must find cure and solution to this epidemic. We pray for those afflicted. May they be restored to health soon. Grant us the grace to work for the good of all and to help those in need. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.

During this time, when it is not possible to receive our Lord Sacramentally in Holy Communion, nor to visit Him in the Tabernacle of our churches it is a praiseworthy and fruitful custom to make an Act of Spiritual Communion:
Spiritual Act of Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually
into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
