IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL PARISHIONERS

Dear parishioners,
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try our best to give everyone a chance to attend Mass in this difficult time.
 
From Monday May 18th, we will be able to have public Masses attended by 10 parishioners at a time (not including altar servers,readers and other volunteers).
 
Fr Deva has kindly agreed to conduct Masses on most days of the week, including two Masses at St. James Cygnet on Saturday (9am and 6pm) and two Masses at St Mary of the Cross Ranelagh on Sunday mornings (9.30am and 10.30am).
 
To try to ensure that everyone will be able to attend Mass if they wish, we are trying a booking system where members of the Pastoral Council can be contacted if you wish to attend Mass this week. We ask that you phone either Kathy (0400893267), Louise (0432665705) or Rachel (0417312156) to book a place if you wish to.
 
The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has not been reinstated, so if you are concerned for your health (eg elderly, immunocompromised) or if you are feeling unwell in any way please do not attend.
 
Please use hand sanitiser on the way into the church and sit in the front pews at a distance of 1.5m from others. The pews will be cleaned down after each Mass and Father Deva will be using hand sanitiser immediately before distributing the Eucharist.
 
When coming forward to receive Holy Communion please form a single line in the aisle and keep a distance of 1.5m between people.
 
The sacrament of penance will be available after each Mass on request.
 
There will be a collection at each Mass (not just the weekend ones) so that everyone will have the chance to contribute towards the upkeep of the parish.
 
Thank you
 
God bless you

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, Fr. Deva's Gospel Reflection is included with the Parish Newsletter.

May God bless your visit to our beautiful Valley
