Sacred Heart Church Preston


Implications for the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne

Information Updated: 23 December 2021, 5:00pm

As of 11.59pm Wednesday 23 December 2021, the following measures will be applied to Masses at Sacred Heart Parish::

From 11:59pm Thursday 23 December 2021, face coverings will be required for gatherings indoors (except in the home) for people aged eight and over, or for those with medical exemptions.

All Catholics in Melbourne continue to be dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further directed by the Archbishop. We continue to carry the happy obligation to keep Sunday holy, whether we can attend Mass or not, and can do so by any kind of prayer with members of our household and parish, reading holy scripture, and encouraging one another in our faith. Prayerfully participating in online Mass continues to be a great source of comfort on Sundays.

Please do not attend Mass if you are feeling unwell, have tested positive or are waiting for a Covid test result.

Check in is still required. Thank you

Parish Priest's Message​

Welcome to the website of Sacred Heart Parish, Preston.  It opens a new door to our church which has welcomed many parishioners and visitors since 1914.  

We are an active and friendly community, blessed with a wonderful spirit of hospitality. 

We are an inclusive community and there are a range of activities and ministries in which parishioners can become involved. Our church has a special beauty and nobility that invites those who enter to prayer and reflection.
We welcome everyone to share their gifts and talents in the service of our community. If you are new to our parish, we hope you will find our church to be a friendly place to worship God. If you are looking for an excellent Catholic education for your child, we invite you to consider our Sacred Heart Primary School.
Since 2008 our parish has been served by priests from the international missionary Society of the Divine Word (SVD).

You are most welcome to join or visit us and we trust that you enjoy this website. 

May the heart of Jesus live in our hearts and in the hearts of all people!

Kind regards,

Fr Aloysius
