As a community we express our sorrow at the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. At the grief of her passing may we comfort one another and trust in God’s peace that surpasses all understanding. Let us give heartfelt thanks to God for the Queen’s long reign marked by dignity, grace and humble service motivated by her Christian faith. We pray that she may be enfolded in God’s Mercy and be granted eternal rest.

Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary 2022
From Nov 9 – Dec 12, Fr Wallace will lead the 33 day preparation for the total consecration to Jesus through Mary.
Many have benefitted from last year’s consecration, by which they became loving slaves of Mary for the purpose of becoming closer to Jesus. This year the format of preparation will largely be the same. The talks will be slightly revised, and most of them will take place after the Saturday 9am Masses at MHM (they will also be broadcast on Youtube).
For those who are renewing their consecration and want to grow further in it, Fr Wallace will post special, supplementary talks on the FSSP Sydney Youtube page at https://www.youtube.com/c/
Those preparing for total consecration will need special books for the 33 day process (the same books as last year). If you would like to order a book, please email Fr Wallace at maternalheartconsecration@
Please email Fr Wallace by September 25th with your order, or if you have questions.
You are invited to a Bush Dance on Saturday 8th October, starting at approximately 6pm.
If anyone would like to contribute some salads, please speak to Kate.
