The parish is responding to government and Adelaide Archdiocese regulations by implementing the following changes to usual parish activities. Please be aware this situation is fluid.
CURRENT PARISH UPDATE
Thursday 19 March 2020:
Today with considerable regret, the Adelaide Archdiocese took the unprecedented move of temporarily cancelling Mass services in South Australia in order to protect the health and well-being of "our people and the general community."
~ From today, parishioners will not be able to attend Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church for celebration of the Eucharist; attendance at all weekday and Sunday Masses is prohibited.
One Sunday Mass will be celebrated by a Parish Priest with minimal ministry support
This mass will be video streamed to the Henley Beach Facebook page and the Henley Beach website (below).
This mass will be available to view at any time of the day for one week from 6:00pm Saturday evening
After a week, this mass will be replaced by the following Sunday mass service.
The Parish Office will co-ordinate the ministries who assist at this Mass.
~ no parish group meetings, this includes PPC, Vinnies, Antioch, Wild Goose, Choir practice, Adoration, Divine Mercy, Rosary Group, Knit & Natter, CWL, playgroup etc
~ no baptisms that have not already been booked

HELPFUL INFORMATION (coming soon)
Stop a minute; quieten down; become aware of the presence of God around you, and within you; pray this prayer from your heart.
“I call with all my heart; Lord, hear me.
I will keep Your commands.
I call upon You, save me.
And I will do Your will.”
