How can I participate in Mass online?
Despite our current limitations, we can still participate in the celebration of Mass online thanks to modern technology. Many dioceses around the world provide online streaming of Masses, including our own Archdiocese of Melbourne. Below are some links to online Masses. We also encourage you to think about how you might help those homebound and less tech-savvy to be able to access Mass online during this time.
1. St Monica's Parish
Our Sunday Mass will be uploaded weekly to the parish Facebook page to allow our parishioners to participate from their homes.

2. St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne
Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne is available daily. The 1pm Mass is streamed live daily (Mon-Fri) and is then available as a recording on-demand until one hour prior to the next Mass. Sunday Mass is available, with the 11am Mass live streamed and it is also available as a recording on-demand.
Liturgies at St Patrick's Cathedral will now be televised live on Channel 31 (as well as live streamed on the Melbourne Catholic website and YouTube Channel). While it will be difficult to not be physically present during these liturgies we hope that by televising the liturgies, more Melburnians will now have access – particularly those who might be limited to television viewing only.
We invite you to come together in your households and families, uniting with the Church in Melbourne and the whole world to celebrate liturgies in your homes. Other ideas and suggestions for how you can celebrate at home can be found here.
Weekly liturgies will be available for viewing on:
