“In these trying days, while humanity trembles due to the threat of the pandemic, I would like to propose to all Christians that together we lift our voices towards heaven,” Francis said. 

“I invite all the heads of the churches and the leaders of every Christian community, together with all Christian of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the omnipotent God, to recite at the same time the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught us,” he continued. 

“I, therefore, invite everyone to do this several times a day, but all together, to recite the Our Father this coming Wednesday, 25 March, at noon (Rome time), all together. On that day on which many Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, may the Lord listen to the united prayer of all of His disciples who are preparing themselves to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ.”

Not being able to attend Mass on Sunday at St Josephs Church because of the COVID-19 pandemic can mean a deep sense of loss. For many the Eucharist is at the heart of our Christian life.
It may, however, be an opportunity to renew your prayer at home on Sundays. It may be a simple grace at meals but whatever your prayer is it is a participation in the prayer of Christ to the Father in the Holy Spirit. You may also choose to spend some time in the Eucharist Chapel at St Joseph's  in that same Spirit.
There are in addition several opportunities to observe the Eucharist online.
St Stephen's Cathedral in Brisbane has a live stream of Mass each day on this link: Mass from St Stephen's Cathedral
Shalom World produces a stream from Rome with daily Mass: Daily Mass from the Vatican

We will also be recording the Sunday Mass without a Congregation and uploading it to Youtube with links on this website.

Weekday Masses are unchanged and will be celebrated as usual.

For all kinds of reasons you may not be able to attend Mass or a Liturgy tomorrow and receive the mark of the ashes on your forehead. You can still enter Lent with a personal liturgy of your own. Remembering that this earth is loved by God take a pinch of soil or of ash in your hand and trace it on yourself in the sign of the cross. Say “Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return”. Think of the ash or soil as a medicine that slows us down in the hectic hyperactive lives we lead. May it give us pause to seek healing in our souls from all the anxiety and all the addictions we are slaves to in our lives.
The cross is a sign of death that leads to life. May your Lent be a time of new growth from the small shoots of faith that can break through our hardened hearts.

Masses at St Josephs Nambour are at 10.00am and 7.00pm Ash Wednesday.
