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.

Talk by Dr Ian Elmer from ACU
CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!
- to be held Thursday 25th July (7pm - 9pm at the latest)
Don’t forget to plan to come along to the ever-popular Christmas in July. Dr Ian Elmer from the Australian Catholic University (and one of our parishioners!) will be giving a talk called “Jesus and the Cosmos” - Sounds great!! What does it mean??
“John’s Gospel has no nativity story. It begins with a majestic prologue (John 1:1-18) claiming that the birth of Jesus heralded the inbreaking of creative divine “Word” into the created cosmos. In this year’s Christmas in July soiree we will be exploring the cosmological dimensions of Christmas. We will discuss how this “big picture” approach to the Christmas story impacts upon our relationship with the environment and how that relationship is related to human salvation.” - Very topical as we try to implement Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si”.
We will have a Christmas party half way though the night so please BRING YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS TREATS to share.
EUTHANASIA - how informed are you??
A very important issue that needs deep thought and prayer. Currently most of the publicity is highly emotive.
At SPEAKER’S CORNER, 15 George Street, Brisbane, [Next to Parliament House], there is an ‘Anti-Euthanasia Appeal’ planned on Saturday the 3rd of August. Gathering from 2:30pm Starting at 3:00pm and closing about 3:15pm or so. All JESUS’ Disciples are most welcome, all who seriously want to appeal to GOD for HIS help!
The Queen Of Apostles Men's Group meets on the third Friday of the month. It is open to any senior gents in the parish - married, widowed, single, clergy, retired or working.

PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 - 2ND PHASE ABOUT TO BEGIN
With the release of the six National Plenary Themes for Discernment and the commencement of the Listening and Discernment phase of the Plenary journey, the Archdiocese of Brisbane will be hosting a Brisbane Assembly taking place October 4-5, 2019 at the Edmund Rice Performing Arts Centre (St Laurence’s College) in South Brisbane. Participants will also hear from an array of quality presenters on ‘Discernment’ and ‘Effective Communication’ to assist with the Listening and Discernment phase. This will aid in empowering participants to engage their own communities with the second phase of the Plenary journey in the lead up to Easter 2020.
Who can attend the Brisbane Assembly?: An invitation is extended to all within the Archdiocese of Brisbane. Please note registrations are likely to fill quickly for this important local Plenary event therefore you are encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment.
For those unable to attend the Brisbane Assembly, Shalom TV will be providing a live web cast of key sessions for the Archdiocese of Brisbane.

Please also note the Brisbane Assembly is just one of a number of ways you and your community/parish can participate in the Listening and Discernment process. This process can also be run locally using the resources available at http://evangelisationbrisbane.org.au/parishes/plenary/
