St Peter Julian’s Church is a eucharistic shrine in the pastoral care of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation in the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown at 641 George Street, Haymarket.
The church is named after the Congregation’s founder St Peter Julian Eymard, who was canonised in 1962.
A religious community of priests and brothers (currently under the leadership of Fr Joe Fernando SSS) live in the monastery attached to St Peter Julian’s Church.
In addition to serving the daily needs of the church, the Congregation conducts outreach ministries to tertiary students and young working adults. Education in faith classes are offered, also bible study; and upon request assistance is given to couples preparing for marriage and baptism.
At least two masses are celebrated every day in St Peter Julian’s Church, with four masses on Sundays including a regular Sunday mass in Chinese. Special masses are also held each month in Filipino and Indonesian.
The public are invited to join the Community in praying the morning and evening prayer of the church on weekdays and to participate in regular devotions including a weekly novena and prayer group.
A priest is available for consultation during office hours Monday to Saturday (or by appointment).
Sacramental Reconciliation (confession) is available at advertised times on most days of the week.
Outside the rostered times for daily masses and other special services, St Peter Julian’s is an oasis of silence and peace in the heart of the city; a place of welcome and meeting, of prayer and adoration in the setting of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
