Welcome to our website
Welcome to the Parishes of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sunnybank and Our Lady of Fatima, Acacia Ridge. Our website will give you a range of information about both Parishes which are administered from Sunnybank Parish.
I hope we can help you in many ways and also help you to know God.
SOCIAL JUSTICE SUNDAY
Next Sunday 28th Septemebr is Social Justice Sunday. The Bishops of Australia will release their annual Social Justice Statement next weekend. The title of the statement is rather interesting; it is “A Crown for Australia: Striving for the best in our sporting nation”. The Statement highlights the vital role that sport plays in the health of individuals, the life of communities and the inclusion of all in Australian society. The Bishops highlight the transformative power of sport and call on all levels of society to treasure and safeguard sport from those forces that undermine its integrity. Remember to pick up the statement next weekend. The next Social Justice meeting is in Paloma on Thursday 25th September commencing at 7 pm. Everybody is welcome.
NEW PARISHIONERS LUNCH
Over 100 people turned up for the New Parishioners Lunch last Sunday. It is always wonderful to welcome new Parishioners to our Parish. A very big thank you to our welcoming committee who set up, organised food and helped serve lunch. I am very grateful to our welcoming committee for all they do in our Parishes.

Proposed Plans for OLOL Church
During 2014 we will be expanding and refurbishing
the Church at Our Lady of Lourdes Sunnybank. We hope to start work about July and
for Mass on Sunday we will use the Paloma Reception Centre. The work will probably
take more than 6 months and so Christmas Masses this year will most likely be
celebrated in the large covered area at our Lady of Lourdes School. Preliminary
permissions and planning are well under way. Check out the various documents, plans and pictures via the links below.
