Our regular 9 am mass pianist, Mei, and her children, Amanda and Caitlin, have been working together with bass guitarist Sam, to create music for the live streamed masses. They work from their respective homes, sending files back and forth between them in order to create the final piece. Mei plays the piano, and records the voice tracks with her children.

The files are then sent to Sam, who records the bass guitar, edits the tracks, puts them together, and produces the song. They have been doing an amazing job working together and providing music every single week for our parish.

Message from Fr. Janeesh Jose

Dear Parishioners,

With the Victorian Government’s announcement on easing of restrictions by permitting the gathering of up to 20 people, it brings me great joy to welcome larger numbers of parishioners back to St Patrick’s Parish, Pakenham.

I would like to thank all parishioners for the enormous support and understanding with the online booking in the last few weeks and hope to continue the same for the coming weeks too.  Regular collection of contact details and hygiene requirements continue to remain in place. Please note that the Church is cleaned and sanitised before and after mass for our own safety.

Because of the latest announcement with regard to the restrictions, the mass attendance will remain the same.

  As we pass through this difficult time of Covid-19, please be assured that you are in my humble prayers. We hope that we can gather in larger numbers once the current restrictions are eased.

Thank you very much and God bless you all.     

Fr Janeesh Jose
