World AIDS Day Mass and Commemoration

St Joseph’s Newtown.  Friday 1 December. Doors open at 7:15PM. The mass begins at 8:00PM. 

All are welcome and invited to join in a very special community mass and commemoration for World AIDS Day. A solemn opportunity is provided to remember by name all those lost to or affected in any way by AIDS, as well as their families and friends.

AIDS has been in the world for more than three decades. World AIDS Day is a global day of observance. Services commemorate in a meaningful and heartfelt way the losses of so many and the impact on their loved ones, families and friends. We also acknowledge the ongoing impact of AIDS in so many countries throughout the world.

Join us as a community in solidarity with all those affected by AIDS and HIV, past and present.

Coffee and tea will be available beforehand. Please join us afterwards for light refreshments.

We acknowledge the Cadigal people of the Eora nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which St Joseph’s stands. St Joseph’s aims to provide a safe place for all people to pray regardless of age, race, creed, gender, cultural background or sexual orientation.
