IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OUR ADMINISTRATOR - FR NICHOLAS OKAFOR

The Federal Government has suspended all non-essential gatherings for an initial 4 weeks to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and to give the community time to understand fully social distancing requirements. The ruling applies from (23 March). The ruling includes a suspension of all religious gatherings, places of worship or funerals (in enclosed spaces and other than very small groups and where the 1 person per 4 square metre rule applies).

Therefore, all parishes in the Archdiocese of Brisbane are required to suspend with immediate effect all Masses, including weekday Masses.

Please refer to our Facebook page and the Stay Connected section of this website, which will be regularly updated to provide new resources. The weekly newsletter will also continue to be uploaded each week to this website.

 

Fr Nicholas is contactable on the Parish Emergency Number: 0404 994 050.
