HOLY ROSARY CHURCH

Holy Rosary Church will close after 12 noon Mass on Sunday 4 August 2019. Work to replace the roof and to update the church interior, providing new sanctuary furniture and other necessary modifications will begin immediately. The church will remain closed until the work is completed.

From Monday 5 August morning Mass at 10.00 am will be celebrated in St Eugene's Church Moneyneena as well as the 6.00 pm Saturday Vigil Mass. There will be no 12 noon Mass in the parish on a Sunday during this short time.
