Greetings and Welcome to our Parish website.
It’s wonderful that you have come to visit us through this media format and I hope that you can find the information that you need here.
Our Parish is small in nature but we have great resources in the people of our community. We stand on a wealth of history and of those who have laid a solid foundation of faithful service to Christ in the two communities that make up our region.
There are not too many parishes that can claim that their Parish School was established by a Saint! St Mary MacKillop founded St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School just over 150 years ago and we recognise the importance of our school to our community.
We welcome you to connect with our Parish and especially in the celebration of Sunday Mass at either St Benedict’s East Brisbane or St Joseph’s Kangaroo Point.
Every blessing to you and your loved ones,
Bishop Ken Howell
Auxiliary Bishop - Brisbane and Parish Priest
Our Vinnies conference members wish to convey sincere thanks to the members of the parish who recently supported our appeal for help through donations of bed linen and in particular single sheets. Most of the people we visit are single people often living in boarding houses located within the parish boundaries. When we receive requests for such items as sheets and blankets they are well received and appreciated, so parishioners can be assured these donations will be put to good use. Please accept our thanks for your donations.
The conference members have been working at full capacity in the past 2 months. Over the past 8 weeks we have made a total of 96 visits and provided help in a number of ways. This assistance has taken the form of emergency food parcels, whitegoods including fridges and washing machines, other items of furniture as well as cash to support individuals with rent assistance, and help with transport by supplying Go Cards for people to access public transport. The parish can be confident in the type of help and the various support we provide in response to request for assistance.
