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.
MASS AND PRAYER GROUPS DURING RENOVATIONS
This weekend (1st May) will be the last weekend we will be celebrating Mass in the Church. As from Tuesday, 3rd May, Masses will be celebrated in the Jacaranda Room, Paloma Parish Complex (Monday 2nd Mass will still be in the Church). This has meant that we have had to make a few changes to the prayer groups:
- Children’s Liturgy of the Word on Sundays has been cancelled as there is a lack of available rooms in Paloma. It will recommence once the Church is completed.
- Rosary has moved from Wednesday to Monday in the Jacaranda Room after Mass.
- Adoration will be on Tuesday nights in the Avocado Room.
- Reconciliation will be in the room just to the right of the foyer, as you enter through the entrance of Paloma.
- Due to the move and renovations, the usual prayer groups that use the Media Room will now be using the Paloma Parish Complex, refer to the table in our latest newsletter.
