Ministry Areas

In Australia the mission of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation is focussed on two city-centre churches: St Francis’ in Melbourne and St Peter Julian’s in Sydney. The principal ministries we engage in are:

  • the celebration of Eucharist at convenient times for city workers and visitors
  • the sacrament of penance or reconciliation
  • pastoral counselling and spiritual direction
  • chaplaincy to overseas-born tertiary students and ethnic communities
  • faith formation programmes leading to baptism, confirmation and eucharist
  • hospitality to priests.

In addition we have religious who offer eucharistic catechesis in parishes or who teach in the field of liturgy in theological colleges.
