We welcome families to engage with the following online alternatives for prayer and reflection, as we head into Easter:

LIVE STREAMING OF MASS FROM ST FRANCIS XAVIER'S CATHEDRAL

The Archdiocese will live stream Mass on Sundays from St Francis Xavier's Cathedral at 10:00am. This can be accessed via their website, www.adelaide.catholic.org.au.  They will also be available via Facebook or YouTube.  The Mass can also be watched on demand.

TELEVISED SERVICES

The following Easter services will be broadcast on free to air TV via community station Channel 44.

Holy Thursday  -  Mass of the Lord's Supper | 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Good Friday  -  Passion of the Lord | 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Holy Saturday  -  Easter Vigil in the Holy Night | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Easter Sunday  -  9:00am - 10:00am

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

The Passionist Community at The Monastery, Glen Osmond, has pre-recorded the 2020 Stations of the Cross.  This can be viewed on YouTube.

OTHER RESOURCES

Sunday Mass is screened on Channel 10 at 6:00am every Sunday morning.  Click Here to watch via 10Play.

Good Friday Lord's Passion | 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Easter Sunday | 10.30am - 11:30am


As we enter into this sacred week, we know it's important during these challenging times to carve out some time for prayer and reflection and to purposefully connect with others in new and innovative ways.  In many ways our journey through Holy Week is both more challenging and equally more important in praying communally and finding ways to connect with our call as Easter people.
