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.

LENTEN PROGRAM FOR 2020
The Lenten Program for 2020 - ‘Be Opened, A journey to new life’, is ready for early ordering! There are some new features in the latest Lenten Program including an extra week - it now covers six weeks of Lent and Easter Sunday!
There is also an app for those unable to join a group. This can be used on
various devices and will be available from January 2020 through Apple
App Store and Google Play Store.
In 2020, there is a strong link between Be Opened and the Plenary Council journey – providing parishes and communities a great focus/reflection opportunity during the period after the Discernment phase.
Be Opened…a journey to new life in many respects reflects the plenary council journey and process.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
We at Our Lady, Queen of Apostles are hosting World Day of Prayer this year. It is on 6th March with a cup of tea first at 9.45am and
Prayer Service at 10.30am finishing about an hour later. It would be great to see lots of us, women and men, attend. For more info contact Toni 0431 705 456 or Cynthia 3350 2742.
At Friday (24th) 9am Mass, all the school staff are joining us for a blessing for the start of the school year. Come along (with your kids/Grandkids) and pray for them (it only takes 30 minutes!).
Australian Catholic Church response to the Bushfires: (From the Australian Bishops’ statement): “...this crisis requires a national response from the whole Church to complement and coordinate what is happening locally. From the Bishops Conference, that national response includes:
Our Bushfire appeal will be held on 15th / 16th February. If you use the envelopes provided, tax deductible receipts can be issued. Our local Vinnies will transfer the money to the local Narooma /Bermagui /Cobargo Conference (one parish with three towns) to distribute according to needs. We are also considering some “personal” contacts to help bolster morale in these towns e.g. letters from parishioners, kids at our school or even some video messages. We’ll keep you informed.
RELIGIOUS GOODS SHOP
We have a large range of cards, religious icons, rosary beads and medallions. We have catalogues with a huge range of gift ideas for new babies, Baptism, birthdays and other special occasions.
