The Catholic Parishes of Bondi incorporate the two communities of St. Patrick’s Bondi & St. Anne’s Bondi Beach.
St. Patrick’s was founded in 1917 and St Anne’s in 1925. As of 10 September 2017, the Parishes are collaborating together under the guidance of one Pastor.
The Parishes serve the greater Bondi area and provide weekday and weekend Masses, as well as administering the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation,
First Eucharist, Confirmation & Marriage.
The Parishes also include Galilee Catholic Primary School.
Baptisms are held on the 1st and 3rd weekends of the month during Parish Masses.
Prior to the Baptism parents will be required to attend a Baptism Preparation Class. These classes are held on the 4th Saturday of the month at 11am at St. Patrick’s.
From 2018 the Parishes will implement a Parish Based Sacramental Program for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation. This will involve children and parents participating in the programs through the Parish rather than the Catholic School.
Weddings are celebrated on Saturdays at 2pm at both churches. As per church law, the Parish requires at least six months’ notice for a wedding.
This is also to give enough time for the couple to be adequately prepared for the Sacrament.
