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.

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.

SOS FOR VINNIE'S STORES !!!!
Our Vinnie’s stores are DESPERATE for help. If you are looking for something worthwhile to do, then this could be it People who are marginalized in our community rely on these stores to help them out with clothing, household items, and toys, just to name few. Don’t let these stores close because they don’t have enough people to man them. So why not ring some of the stores and see if you can help out? Thank you and God Bless from the Stafford Vinnie’s Conference
