Christmas Mass Times


We are a welcoming community and we invite you to join us to celebrate Christmas this year.

The Catholic parish of St. Canice is an open, inclusive and welcoming community located in Elizabeth Bay, just behind cosmopolitan Kings Cross in Sydney. We are proud of the variety of people who make up the church that we know.

St Canice’s extends its welcome to all, without judgment – to the lonely people of the street and to the comfortable middle class, to the transvestites and the fashionistas, to the public figures and the unknown, to the hungry and the well fed, to the devout and the doubtful.

We look forward to welcoming you to share the Joy of Christmas with us at one of the four Celebrations on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Refreshments will be served after the 10 pm Mass on Christmas Eve, and after the 10.30 am Mass on Christmas Day.

28 Roslyn Street, Elizabeth Bay.

    Hello, I am interested in attending your 6pm Vigil Service on Christmas, however, I am also considering extending this idea to my extended family, as we live all over Sydney, and it is at a good time for us and quite neutral territory. That would also include my 97 yr old Mum, who can walk, but is slow.

    Going to a big event Children,s Mass can be a bit much, ( for Mum) both the length and the crowds, so, can you give me some idea of what sort of crowd you would be expecting and is it a fairly straight forward Christmas Mass celebration ?

    Thank you very much for your time.
    Fran May.

      It will be a normal Mass with singing of carols – should be very beautiful and full of the spirit of Christmas. 6pm will not have huge crowds.
