Welcome to the website of our partnered parishes: St Gabriel’s Reservoir and St Stephen of Hungary, East Reservoir. The parishes have been partnered since 2012.

The information contained on the website will give you an overview of the times of worship, the Sacraments, the activities and the outreach of the parishes. If you are seeking specific Mass times and details of scheduled activities please go to the weekly newsletter/bulletin.

In 2016 both parishes will respond to Pope Francis call to celebrate the mercy of God in our lives and to bring others to know and rejoice in that mercy. ’24 Hours for the Lord’ to be held between Friday 4 March and Saturday 5 March is an important event in this Holy Year. Both parish schools and parishioners will be involved in this act of worship and devotion. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will continue throughout the night.

St Stephen’s Parishioners are eagerly anticipating the reopening of the church after extensive renovation. St Stephen’s Church has been closed since 2 November last. All Masses are currently celebrated at St Gabriel’s Church. We hope to be back in St Stephen’s Church by Pentecost. As with all renovation projects, the moment you begin, other works that need to be addressed come into the ‘daylight’!

St Stephen’s Parish Family was deeply saddened by the death of long-time parish secretary, Mrs Terri Marshall, on 17 January this year. Both parishes extend to Terri’s Family our sympathy and prayers. St Gabriel’s School Principal, Mr Brian Booley, resigned at the end of the 2015 school year after 16 years of service. We wish Brian every happiness as he undertakes lighter duties. A selection panel has begun the process of choosing a new principal.

Thanks for hitting our website. I hope you find what you are seeking!

God Bless,
Fr Shane Hoctor,
Parish Priest.
