Easter Celebrations

Every year, our Easter celebrations get larger and more meaningful. This year we are seeking help to ensure that our celebrations continue to engage and move everyone who attends.

Easter Triduum Rehearsals: For those involved in the Liturgies during the Triduum (including Readers, Special Ministers of Communion, those to be commissioned, etc) there is a Rehearsal on Tues 30 Mar in the Church. Holy Thursday Rehearsal from 6:30pm-7:30pm, Good Friday Rehearsal from 7:30pm-8:00pm and Easter Vigil Rehearsal from 8:00pm-9:00pm. Please arrive 5 mins before your scheduled start.

Reconciliation: 1st Rite of Reconciliation available on Mon 29 Mar in the Church at 7pm-8pm. Last opportunity before Easter.

Project Compassion: Project Compassion Boxes can be returned between Palm Sunday (27/28 Mar) & Holy Thursday (Thurs 01 Apr).

Dear St James Parishioner,

There has been a great response from parishioners wishing to participate in our Easter celebrations at St James. We are trying to meet the demand while complying with Covid restrictions put in place by the government.

Please note that the latest announcements of restriction easing by the government have not affected the numbers we can have at Mass as Religious Services were already operating out of these relaxed numbers since January.

Use the link HERE to access our booking site.  The link is also available on the St James website and Facebook pages.

In an endeavour to accommodate as many people as possible, the church Narthex and Chapel will be used for seating where we can.

You are reminded that in all cases you will receive an email from Trybooking confirming your booking has been made successfully. If you are not sure your booking went through correctly, send an email to [email protected] and we will check your booking to avoid disappointment on the day.

If you have booked a seat and for whatever reason cannot attend, please cancel your booking to enable fellow parishioners to attend. To cancel your booking, click on the link to “return tickets” in your booking confirmation email or send an email to the parish office.

People wanting to make a booking at a Mass that is currently booked out are encouraged to regularly check our online booking page as some seats may become available through bookings being cancelled or further seats being released.

People who miss out on booking a seat inside the church will be able to stand outside the church after self-registering on their mobile phones using the parish QR code upon arrival.
