22 March 2020 - Dear friends and parishioners of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church. The Bishop Anthony Randazzo send us a letter regarding new measures across Austealia to restrict the transmission of the COVID-19 and asked that we follow the general directives put forward by the Prime Minister, that all places of worship should close their doors as of 12 noon today (Monday 22 March 2020). I ask you to stay home and pray with me for our Parish community, our Catholic Church in Australia, all people who are not well and people who helping the sick. May God of Love and Mercy help us to go through this difficult time.
God bless you all.
Fr Pawel Kopczynski CSMA
