Suspension of Public Masses: Effective 18 March 2020

and all churches closed (effective 23/3/2020)


The Catholic Bishops of the Province of Victoria have announced:

• Immediate suspension of public liturgies and celebrations of the Mass, until further notice.
• all Catholics in Victoria are dispensed from their Sunday obligation until further notice


This is due to government restrictions related to COVID-19.

Please see the letter from the Bishops here and further information from the Archdiocese of Melbourne here.

Hence there will be no Masses or Easter liturgies celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church and St. Joseph's Church until further notice.

When Masses are able to resume, notice will be published on this website.
