 DO I NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION FOR MASS?

Weekday Masses do not require any on-line booking, but a sign in sheet at the entry for registration is required.

Sunday Masses (incl Saturday Vigil)

It is still essential for the Sunday masses until such time that legislation changes

We have implemented the EventBrite online booking system accessible at this link https://john23rd.eventbrite.com.au/

You will be able to select your mass time and then the date. 10:30am Sunday Mass is streamed live.

If you or someone you know does not have computer access or require assistance, please call Tanya, our Parish Secretary, on 8883 5981, Tuesday to Friday, 10.00am-12.00 and she will be able to book for you.

Please consider others when making your reservations as we need to give everyone a chance to attend mass.

Please follow the instructions when making your booking – you need to separately book each person in your family and bring your ticket or mobile phone with your e-ticket to mass.
