A BIG WELCOME TO FR. WARREN EDWARDS
Our new Parish Priest, Fr Warren Edwards arrived safely in the Huon Valley on 2nd July and will spend his 14 day mandatory isolation in the Cygnet Presbytery.
Sunday (28th June) was Fr Deva's last Mass before he moves to Hobart prior to his return to India. A large number of parishioners attended this Mass to say good bye and thank you to Fr Deva for his wonderful service to our Parish over the past four years.
During Father Warren's quarantine there will be no weekday Masses and we will have a supply priest saying the weekend Masses.

Welcome to the Huon Valley Catholic Parish Website
Like our Valley you will find our Parish and this website to be a friendly, inclusive and beautiful place to visit or to be a part of on a more permanent basis.
The Valley is nearly always green with much to see and do, and it is very easy to travel around. Here you will find a diversity of God's creation reflected in both the scenery and the people. We are a diverse community with a sense of acceptance and generosity of spirit that is never far from the surface of our hearts and our response to those in need.
This Parish is friendly. If you are new to the Valley you will find very quickly a sense of belonging and of being home. If you are just passing through I can assure you, you will want to come back and visit such is the allure and peace of the Valley and the Catholic Community.
Unfortunately the public celebration of all Masses has been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Once the suspension is lifted, Parish Mass times will be listed here on the website along with directions to the various Churches where the Eucharist is celebrated. Our weekly Parish Newsletter, also here on the website, will give you the happenings of the Parish, and all the Parish Contact details as well.
Call by our new Church in Ranelagh, St Mary of the Cross Catholic Community Church. As the name suggests we see ourselves very much in the spirit of Mary MacKillop, Australia's first saint and we are truly a community that 'never sees a need without doing something about it'. As a community we are very excited about worshipping in our new spiritual home. We are proud to show off our Holy space and are pleased that so many members of the community have participated in its creation from planning to design to construction. It reflects our desire for the traditions of our Faith but in a more modern setting communicating the Church in and for the modern world. It is a place that is both warm and reflective inviting all who enter through her doors to spend a while in quiet and peace.
If you can't make it to Mass any weekend, the Gospel Reflection and Prayers of the Faithful are included with the Parish Newsletter.
May God bless your visit to our beautiful Valley.
