MASS TIMES in January 2023

For the remaining Sundays in January, i.e. 29 Jan: there will be
ONLY ONE Mass at Saint Peter’s at 10:00am
There will be no 10:00am Mass on Thurs 2 Feb (owing to the 11:00am Requiem Mass for Cardinal Pell at St Mary’s Cathedral); however there will be a Mass for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord at St Peter’s at 5:00pm

We may not or need not understand God’s plan for us,
all that is expected of us is to trust in Him, as Mary, our Mother did.

The Petrine Office – Barque of Peter

The World is a flood of confusion.  Only one Boat that can sail safely through. The sail is Jesus. It’s pilot is Peter.  It’s rudder, the Word of God. It is the Catholic Church.  “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”  (John 14:6)

Follow the Lord and you will be led out of darkness, for He is the light.  For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. (Psalm 36:9)  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a people set apart to sing the praises of God who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)

“ … the barque of the Church is not mine but [Christ’s], nor does the Lord let it sink; it is he who guides it, surely also through those whom he has chosen, because he so wished.  This has been, and is, a certainty which nothing can shake. ”

Pope Benedict XVI, last General Audience, February 27th, 2013; Vatican.va


Fratelli Tutti (The third encyclical of Pope Francis) As the Parish of Saint Peter, Surry Hills supports the person and teachings of his successors who, as Bishops of Rome, hold the Petrine office.

Partaking in the Eucharist commits us to others, especially the poor, teaching us to pass from the flesh of Christ to the flesh of our brothers and sisters, in whom he waits to be recognised, served honoured and loved by us.
