Parish Information Regading COVID-19

The information below was last updated Monday 23 March, 3:45 p.m.

Holy Spirit Parish specific information will be posted here.  More general information from Catholic Archdiocese Melborne will be posted in the section below.

Suspension of Public Masses, Confessions and Group Meetings: Effective 18 March 2020

There are no longer any scheduled masses at Holy Spirit. The Bishops of Victoria have written an update regarding COVID-19. Of note is the immediate suspension of public Masses. This will be a difficult moment, and every encouragement is offered as clergy and parish staff seek to explain sensitively to our people the reasons why Mass will not be offered as a public celebration.

We will continue to make The Word, our parish newsletter, available for you each week on the website.

Similarly confessions and all group meetings are suspended until further notice.

Suspension of the Chapel for Private Prayer: Effective 23 March 2020

In accordance with the further instructions from the Government and the Archbishop, the Church and Chapel are both closed for worship and prayer. No masses, communion services or other gatherings will take place until further notice. The parish office will be staffed from Tue – Fri 9am – 4pm but we ask that you contact us via phone, 9876 1077, or email, RingwoodNorth@cam.org.au.

Note: The following are now in part superseded by the above regarding the closure of the chapel.

More Holy Parish specific details are in the Parish Letter. READ: Parish Letter (20/03/2018).

Now what? Online Mass and other resources
