NEW! Parishes of Adelaide Podcast

Arch D Radio & Podcasting - James Meston

Here's another new way for the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide to stay connected during this time, when we are disconnected in a lot of ways. Every Wednesday, we’ll be releasing a new episode that will feature a pastoral message, the gospel reading and reflection for the coming Sunday, and conversations with two different parishes to see how they are staying connected with their congregations.

  • You can subscribe to the Parishes of Adelaide Podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Soundcloud, and also listen now at the link below.

Family Liturgies with Children

During this time resulting from the COVID-19 when Sunday Masses are not occurring, you are invited to gather as a family for communal prayer each Sunday based on the Liturgy of the Word for that day. Let us reflect personally and as a community on the Word of God so that it may echo within our heart and bear fruit in our lives.

Resources for Family Liturgies with Children have prepared by the Family and Parish-Based Catechesis Office  - click here for resources
