New NSW COVID-19 restrictions

Given low vaccination rates, the current stay at home orders will remain in place for another four weeks (until Saturday, 28 August at 12.01am) across Greater Sydney including the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour.

This extra time will allow NSW residents to significantly increase the uptake of vaccines in areas most affected by the current outbreak and across the state.

A Prayer to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Gentle Mother, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, you opened your heart to God and brought for our Saviour, Christ the Lord.

Holy Mary, help us to be people of faith, who see God’s presence within and around us. Inspire us to see the Face of God in our family and friends–and in all people.

Virgin Mother, as you embrace us with the mantle of your love, give us the grace to see God’s action and will in times of light and darkness, and in the peaks and valleys of our climb to God’s holy mountain.

Be with us now, in our hour of need, Beautiful Flower of Carmel. Be our Mother! God will not say “no” to you, because you, Gracious Lady, said “YES” to Him.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
