Welcome to our website....
Let it be both an entrée into our community and an ongoing source of information about how we try to live out our vision which is “To Follow The Example Of Jesus By Serving Others.” – I hope you accept that that’s a goal and not a boast about where we are now!
I want to give you a bit more of a welcome than this so, if you’d like more… click here.

ANGLICAN ROMAN CATHOLIC RECONCILIATION SERVICE
Each year people from the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane, the Catholic Diocese of Toowoomba and the Anglican Church of Southern Queensland (the Diocese of Brisbane) gather to pray with and for one an-other for a greater mutual understanding and reconciliation. This years’ service will be hosted by our Archdiocese at St Stephen's Cathedral and the theme is centred on the Season of Creation: “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Luke 12:32-34 NRSV) Save Thursday 4th November at 11am into your diary and find out more via the event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/263276095690241
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CATHOLIC VIEW ON VACCINATION?
You can learn more about Pope Francis’s recent encouragement to all to get vaccinated with approved Covid-19 vaccines in the link below. Pope Francis referred to it as ‘an act of love.’ https:// www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2021-08/pope-francis-appeal-covid-19-vaccines-act-of-love.html
The Archdiocese of Brisbane supports COVID-19 vaccination except for those people with a valid medical exemption from their health professional.
For our vulnerable parishioners, rest assured that Fr Denis, Debra and Mark are all fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
PARISH MUSIC MINISTRY
The Music ministry held a team building and planning meeting last weekend. They welcomed a new member to the fold—Josie. Josie will share her wonderful gift as a cantor/vocalist with our community in Mass. There was a great sense of friendship and the room was brimming with talent! Maree and Michael put on a lovely morning tea. Discussions were centred around Christmas Masses and introducing some new hymns and reintroducing some oldies too. I spoke to the group about the importance of Copyright. I think we all left feeling like we had achieved something and had deepened our appreciation of each person’s talents.
