St Peter Julian’s Church is a eucharistic shrine located on George Street, in the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown.
The church is in the pastoral care of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation and is named after St Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868), who founded the Congregation in France in 1856.
A religious community of priests and brothers 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. Bible study and education-in-faith classes are offered. Assistance is also available, on request, before marriage and baptism.
Several masses are celebrated throughout the week including a mass in Cantonese and another in Korean. Each month, two additional masses are celebrated in Indonesian and one mass in Filipino. You can find more details on our Mass Times page.
Sacramental reconciliation (confession) is available at advertised times on most days of the week.
The public are invited to join the religious community in the morning and evening prayer of the church on weekdays, and to participate in regular devotions including a weekly novena and a prayer group.
A priest is available for consultation during office hours, Monday to Saturday (or at other times by appointment).
Outside the rostered times of daily masses and other services, St Peter Julian’s Church is an oasis of silence and peace in the centre of the city, a place of welcome and meeting, and a shrine of prayer and adoration in the setting of exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
We have a small number of valued staff who work to support the mission of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation in Sydney.
We have several volunteers who assist our ministry at St Peter Julian’s church. If you would like to be involved at our church, please see Fr Philip Watkins, SSS.
