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
VINNIES CHRISTMAS APPEAL
The Christmas Giving trees have now appeared at the entrances to both churches heralding the official commencement of our St Vincent de Paul 2021 Christmas hamper appeal.
Again, this year our members will be delivering about 40 hampers to people who seek our assistance. The hampers are designed to be our gift to those in our local community who experience disadvantage and poverty. Parishioners will notice gift cards on the tree. These cards each identify the specific item that we will use to fill the hampers. Parishioners are invited to take a couple of the gift cards and purchase the item mentioned in the card. Please return these items back to church and place them in the baskets located around the tree. Hampers will be delivered on Saturday December 18, so please return the items by Wednesday December 15.
We are pleased to accept the support of the families at St Joseph’s Catholic primary school who again are assisting our conference with this appeal. Thank you to the children, their parents, and the staff at St Joseph’s school. Your assistance is valued by our members and helps spread the true message of peace and hope of Christmas. We also wish to express our thanks to the boys at Churchie who have come on board and collected items for the Christmas hampers as well in 2021! Thank you.
