    “God bless us, every one”.

  41. My wife loved being able to attend your Mass today from our self isolation in the Noosa hinterland. We are members of the Noosa Parish. A great initiative from your Parish. We are on our on-line spiritual road trip and love attending Mass in various regions of our country. Thank you Fr Geoff and to you and all your parishioners god bless and stay well.

  42. God was “truly present” in this Palm Sunday service. Thank you. God’s presence was with us especially as we listened to such an inspiring and explanatory homily. Mornington has been given a great opportunity by you, Father Geoff to “become more Christ like.”I pray that we listen to your call and place our trust in the Lord our saviour.

  43. Thank you Fr Geoff for a wonderful Mass. The last hymn sums it all up. Jesus is Lord no matter what happens. May we be ready for when he calls us.

  71. Hi Father Geoff. Thankyou so very much for bringing the most Holy Mass to us in our home. The four of us gathered in our lounge room to watch mass on our TV. It was like being at church with every one. We even printed the church bulletin and followed the readings with you. The picture was clear and audio just fine, though your mic was a little muffled father…. but clear enough to follow you. Thankyou to all who made your Mass available to us. We were truly present with you. We look forward to coming back and celebrating in person with you. Until then, see you on-line next week. God Bless and keep all our parishioners well. Warm regards, Don, Leanne, Alyssa and Cameron Brooks.

  72. Thankyou for serving us in this time Father Geoff with the consolation of the Eucharist ….so blessed that you were able to bring us into our church …..our familiar place of Worship with all the Spiritual Blessings as we participated here at home…Your points in the Homily …..all amazing and so welcome. We ask Father God bless and keep you safe .

    6. Thank you Father Geoff for this Palm Sunday Holy Mass. I felt I was present there with you. The reflection song was so beautiful and so full of meaning. I was so overcome with love in my heart and tears in my eyes. I am not a member of the Mornington Parish. My son Stephen is and he has told me about this Mass. I am a parishioner of St. Thomas More, Mt. Eliza.
      Thank you so much for organising this Mass. May God bless you always and keep you safe.

    7. Thanks once again, Fr Geoff for sharing the liturgy on Palm Sunday, even though you appeared to be alone for the Eucharist , we felt very much with you during the celebration. During the week I was able to go to the last mass video & replay your homily which allowed me time to reflect and deepen my understanding of the readings. I have invited friends and family members not in the parish to also take part in the video mass. Kind regards, Carmel & Michael McGrath

    8. We are very thankful for the Holy masses & were very blessed to be able to access the 3.00

      pm ceremony as well.

      Thank you Father Geoff & helpers.
