ST PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL PARISH

THE CRADLE OF CATHOLICISM

The dream of installing a peal of bells at St Patrick’s Cathedral dates to 1853.  In 2019, the arrival from England of eight specially commissioned bells, began the final chapter in an epic 167-year quest to install a ‘ring’ of bells in the spire of St Patrick’s Cathedral.

On Tuesday 8 September at 6 pm, on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, history will be made with the Blessing of the Bells of St Patrick’s Cathedral by Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv, Bishop of Parramatta.

You are invited to view the livestream of this momentous occasion on the following platforms:

COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

A parishioner who attended the 8am Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral on July 19 has tested positive for COVID-19. The person remained outside of the Cathedral during Mass. NSW Health has investigated and determined those who also attended that particular Mass were casual contacts. Everyone who attended the Mass has been contacted and advised to monitor for symptoms and seek testing if they develop symptoms. As per our COVID-Safe Plan, the Cathedral was wiped down following the Mass.

If you have attended Mass at the Cathedral since the 8am Mass on July 19 you are NOT required to be tested.

NSW Health has advised that is not necessary to close the Cathedral. The Cathedral remains open for Mass and services for a maximum of 100 people.

Under the Cathedral’s COVID-Safe plan, our staff will clean pews and other frequently-touched surfaces following each Mass. We will also be temperature-testing everyone who attends Mass and will have hand santiser available. To comply with the plan, we can only allow 100 people to attend each Mass and they must register contact details with us.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and will keep you updated.

We are committed to working with NSW Health to keep the Cathedral safe.
