COVID UPDATE 9/9/2021
THE NSW GOVERNMENT HAS ANNOUNCED THAT CHURCHES WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL THE MONDAY AFTER NSW PASSES THE 70% TARGET OF RESIDENTS HAVING HAD TWO DOSES OF A COVID-19 VACCINE (expected to be some time in October 2021).
For families with children enrolled in Catholic SRE at Clovelly Public School, here is a direct link to our “Catholic SRE Learning from Home” materials: https://www.ccress.org.au/learning-from-home-sre-lessons/
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO MASS IF YOU ARE AT ALL UNWELL OR HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS, HOWEVER SLIGHT.
Under current Covid restrictions, we are limited to a congregation of 100 at any Mass. Booking is not required. Please sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the church, register your contact details in the church foyer (on paper or using QR code), and maintain distance of 1.5 metres between households.
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.
