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.

ARIA ANGELS
Aria Angels is a recently formed group in our Deanery. It is designed for the spiritual nourishment of children from birth to 5 years. It was begun in our Deanery about 3 years ago and now involves approximately 65 families from the neighbouring Parishes who meet on Wednesday mornings and have a most enjoyable time. As you will see elsewhere in the newsletter Aria Angels is held in our Parish of Sunnybank. We are looking for a person to help in the coordinating team who would be responsible for hospitality, welcoming and maintaining communication with the families. Anne who has been carrying out this role for the last 3 years is now retiring because of other obligations. This role could easily be handled over 4 hours a week. If you are interested in helping the coordination team please let me know. There are more details on the noticeboards in both our Parish churches headed “Aria Angels”.

Unite Youth & Young Adult MinistryChallenge and ConquestGirls and boys groups for those in grade 6-10. Friday 22nd August 7-9pm In Paloma (next to the church) New people are always welcome!!! Come along and try something new... It’s LOTS of fun!!!

 

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.
