Holy Week Liturgies: Televised & Live Streamed

Friday 3 April, 2020

Communications Office

The Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne is pleased to share the news that our Holy Week liturgies at St Patrick's Cathedral will now be televised live on community channel C31 (channel 44 on digital TV) as well as live-streamed on our website and YouTube Channel. While it will be difficult to not be physically present during these liturgies that commemorate and celebrate this most sacred time in our Church, we hope that by televising the liturgies, more Melburnians will now have access – particularly those who might be limited to television viewing only.

We invite you to come together in your households and families, uniting with the Church in Melbourne and the whole world to celebrate these liturgies in your homes. Other ideas and suggestions for how you can celebrate at home can be found here.


Note: Please follow the times indicated below. We have been in touch with C31 to update their online TV guide.

As outlined above, Holy Week liturgies will be available for viewing on:
