If you are looking for an evening Mass on Christmas Day, St Patrick’s Cathedral is the only Church in the Parramatta Diocese holding a 6.00pm service.


As we move closer to the beginning of the Christmas Novena (December 17) the Advent focus shifts to the Christmas story and the Virgin Mary. This would be a good time to prepare spiritually and so we encourage you to visit the church for the sacrament of reconciliation.

Reconciliation times are:

  • Mondays to Fridays 11.15am to 12.20pm
  • Saturdays   8.30 am to 9.00am     5.00pm to 5.30pm
  • Dec 24 (Christmas eve) 8.00am only
