    Message from Archpriest Michael Kalka

    Fr Michael Kalka JP ArchpriestThis is a difficult and complex time for each and every one of us. However as people of faith we need to keep our eyes always focused on Jesus who guides us through all the events of our daily living. Please remember to pray for one another and please remember to care for one another. May you be able to find joy and peace in the Risen Lord Jesus.
    Stay well; stay safe and God Bless, 
    Archpriest Michael Kalka

    “Do you think I have come to give you peace on Earth?  No, I tell you, but rather division.”  (Luke 12:51)

    Many of us like to play it safe, not cause waves with our family and friends, especially when it comes to politics and religion.  We don’t want to cause any turmoil.  However, many times this is at the expense of the truth.  The truth being Jesus Christ.  Too many people are misguided because they rely on their own limited human ability to reason and are not allowing faith in God to guide them.  Form your conscience; take a stance for life, marriage and religious liberty.


     

  •             ANNIVERSARY

    Unfortunately, our Mass to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the first Mass celebrated here in Altona by Very Rev John Barry (Administrator of St Patrick's Cathedral) was cancelled.  However, please note it will be replaced with a Mass to mark the 101st anniversary on Saturday, 13th of August, 2022.  We will endeavour to get Archbishop Peter Comensoli to be the celebrant of our 6 p.m. Mass on that day.
