Nazareth Catholic Parish

Grovedale, Torquay and Anglesea

At long last, we are able to gather in significant numbers to offer praise and thanksgiving in our rightful home.

As a result of the recent Victorian announcements, we are now able to re-member our faith family, for both weekday and weekend Masses.  However we are still limited by the numbers that can attend so we all have to work together to support every parishioner who wishes to come to Mass sometime during the Christmas Season, and beyond.

In order to do this safely and in compliance with current regulations, there are two specific conditions that must be adhered to:

  1.    Each church has a specific limit on the number of people who can attend at the one time.
  2.    Records need to be kept so that contact can be made with anybody who has attended a specific Mass.

In order to effeciently manage our responsibilities, Nazareth Parish is implementing a booking system for Mass attendance.

“The Rosary is a long chain that links heaven and earth.  One end of it is in our hands and the other end is in the hands of the holy Virgin.

The Rosary prayer rises like incense to the feet of the Almighty. Mary responds at once like a beneficial dew, bringing new life to human hearts.” -St Therese of Lisieux
