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.

THE ARCHBISHOP IS HERE!
This weekend Friday 13th September until Sunday 15th September, Archbishop Mark Coleridge is visiting our parish. This visit is called a Pastoral Visit where Archbishop Mark can get to know our great parish and meet our community. He spent Friday morning at our wonderful school and on Friday Evening celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation with those children we have been praying for. On Saturday afternoon, he will visit our ladies and children in the Convent who are Asylum Seekers. After that he will meet up with a combined gathering of our Pastoral Council, Finance Council, Social Justice Group, Environmental Group, Sacramental Team, Queensland Community Alliance Reps, and Asylum Seeker support group. For the remainder of the weekend, he will preside at the Saturday 5pm, Sunday 7am and 9am Masses and join us for our cuppa and cakes afterwards. There will be NO SUNDAY 5.30pm Mass this weekend.
CONTAINERS FOR CHANGE
Our Lady Queen of Apostles has registered with the scheme. As we work towards more sustainable habits in our hospitality endeavours, we will use this facility following functions that produce container waste. If you would like to use the service and donate the funds to the Parish, simply take your containers to the depot and enter our registration identification number: C10195625. Ten cents per item will be refunded into the parish account; that money can be reinvested into projects which further support our community.
The nearest collection point is: Envirobank at Everton Park Tavern, 101 Flockton Street, Everton Park. Open: Mon-Sun 9am to 3am
SEASON OF CREATION SEPTEMBER 1 TO OCTOBER 4
Representatives of several Christian churches, including Catholics, Anglicans, and Orthodox, are urging the faithful to see September as the “Season of Creation” in an effort to raise awareness about climate change.
The month-long ecumenical initiative has the theme, “The web of life.” This reflects the role humanity has as stewards of creation, but also the “urgent need” to protect biodiversity. According to the United Nations, an estimated one million species are under threat of extinction, primarily due to “our way of life.”
Turkson’s dicastery said that the invitation sent to Catholic communities this year is closely tied to the upcoming Synod of Bishops on the Amazon region, which is the “first to focus on the application of integral ecology.”
