Covid restrictions have been relaxed and there is now no requirement to wear a mask or register attendance when visiting the church. Sanitising hands is still recommended. The Australian Bishops encourage us to get vaccinated – see their statement below.

DO SOMETHING OF ETERNAL SIGNIFICANCE – become a parish catechist for Catholic children at Clovelly Public School. For the first time in over 40 years, we don’t have enough catechists to cover all classes. The lessons are for half an hour on Tuesday mornings, and you teach from authorised lesson plans. A Working With Children Check is required, as is basic training in safeguarding, classroom management and using the authorised curriculum, and most can be done online. More details are available at If you are at all interested, please speak to Fr Pierluigi, contact Joanne Russell 0467 023 962 or email the parish office.

Welcome to Our Parish

St Anthony’s Parish is located in the beachside suburb of Clovelly, and includes all of Clovelly and parts of the suburbs of Randwick, Waverley, Coogee and Bronte. It is part of the Eastern Deanery of the Archdiocese of Sydney. The first church was established here in 1917.

Our Vision is to make Christ present in our parish, in our local community and in our world.

Our Mission is to know Christ and to make him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.

St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, located next to the church, is an integral part of the parish.

The parish has always had a good musical reputation, and this is continued by St Anthony’s Singers, who normally lead the congregation at our Vigil Mass.

The south (left-hand) entrance to the church is the most accessible, and there is a hearing loop installed for those using a hearing aid with a T switch.

The Parish Office is located with the presbytery at 7 Fewings St, Clovelly. The office is generally staffed Mondays and Fridays, from 9.00am to 4.00pm.
