With Christmas falling on Monday 25 December, the Vigil Mass on 24 December for Christmas cannot suffice for the Sunday obligation ie one Mass for two obligations. What can happen is as follows:

  • Attend Christmas Vigil 24 December (which will fulfil Sunday) and attend Mass on Christmas Day 25 December.


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me … Matthew 25:35

There are children in our community who have been through experiences few of us could begin to fathom and who, without our help, will go through a childhood without the love and support of a family.
There are families too who struggle daily, and as a result face the prospect of short and even long-term separation from their children.

We believe all children deserve a safe home, and by providing one we can help them build their self-esteem and develop the skills they need to succeed in life.

CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay is looking for everyday families who might consider taking a child or young person into their home - to love and support them whether for one or two nights, a few weeks, months, or long term. This just might be you …

If you have space in your home and room in your heart, please reach out now. You can attend our information evening, speak to one of our team or check out our website for more information.

Please help us help these children.
