Guardian Angels Church
All Masses Suspended
In light of the strict quarantine measures imposed by our government and the cancellation of all public events, gatherings and the suspension of weekday and Sunday Masses, I felt it is necessary to communicate with you by offering you my prayers and support in these difficult times.
Firstly, I pray God will keep you and your loved ones safe and be assured of our prayerful and pastoral support. The office staff and clergy are here to support you in whatever way we can, by maintaining normal parish office hours and celebrating the Eucharist in our respective churches on weekdays and Sundays without a congregation present.
Secondly, in Southport Parish Masses will be celebrated by the priest for your intentions. You are asked to join with us at home, in the office, sitting on your balcony or in your back garden. You can light a candle, sit in silence, read the scriptures, pray the rosary or whatever prayer gives you the most comfort as we join together with God our Father to pray for all who are suffering and working to defeat this deadly virus. These times are as follows
Weekday Mass: Monday & Wednesday
7am St Joseph the Worker Church, Labrador
Tuesday 9am Mary Immaculate Church, Ashmore
Friday 12.30pm Guardian Angels Church, Southport
Weekend Mass: Saturday 6pm Guardian Angels Church, Southport
Sunday 8.30am Mary Immaculate, Ashmore
Finally, I will continue to pray for you and our parish community in this rapidly changing pandemic and please remember us in your prayers and be assured of our prayerful and pastoral support.
We are always available in case of an emergency.
Fr Gerard McMorrow
PS: Masses from the Cathedral are being live-streamed at archbne.org/bzw on Sundays and weekdays.
DISCOVER A BEAUTIFUL FAITH IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. Over the years, there have been an untold number of questions and objections raised about the Catholic Church’s teachings and practices. The answers are there, and it’s worth your time to find them. As the Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “There are not even 100 people in this country who hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they think the Catholic Church to be.” The Lord wants us all to know and understand His truth, so we can embrace it wholeheartedly and live by it. Christ reminds us, “The truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
