THE Hobart Cup Eve Mass will return to the calendar of events this year.

For over 30 years the Hobart Cup Mass was a well-attended annual event for many racing enthusiasts and this year the parish is re-introducing the Hobart Cup Eve Mass at St John’s Catholic Parish located at 62 Bowden Street, Glenorchy.

The Mass is scheduled to start at 6 pm on Saturday, February 9 with the congregation to pray for the safety of all involved in racing and for the racing industry as a whole.

The church also will take a leaving collection in aid of jockeys who have been injured while providing enjoyment for others as we celebrate and ask a blessing for those who enjoy the camaraderie and thrill of thoroughbred racing.
