What are the Holy Days of obligation in Australia? Is missing Mass a sin?

“This is my Son, the Beloved: He enjoys my favour. Listen to Him”
Our life is transfigured as we grow in the Love of God; as we become more like Christ by sharing in his victory over selfishness, sin, suffering and even death. Our journey of faith is a journey of light – a journey of darkness undertaken in light of God’s promises to us, in light of the resurrection, and in light of the coming kingdom!
The journey of faith is by nature darkness to the one walking in faith, but for all around, as we walk with Jesus, we ourselves become light for the world.

From Ash Wednesday to the Saturday after Ash Wednesday
The Catholic Bishops of Australia have asked that the Church take seriously (and ideally take part in) four days of prayer, fasting and reparation. These days are designated as days of fasting and reparation for the whole Church in Australia in sorrow for child sexual abuse and for the healing of victims and survivors.

Given how precious the Mass the Code of Canon Law (#1246) proscribes, "Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church." Moreover, "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass..." (#1247).
Therefore, the Catechism teaches, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit grave sin" (#2181), and grave sin is indeed mortal sin.
Recently, our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, repeated this precept in his apostolic letter Dies Domini (Observing and Celebrating the Day of the Lord, #47, 1998).
