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.

Proposed Plans for OLOL Church

One of the biggest changes we will face in Sunnybank in 2015 is the refurbishment and extension of our Church. There has been a lot of planning carried out during 2014 to prepare for our new Church. The plans for the Church were sent to the Brisbane City Council in October and we have just finished 3 weeks of advertising locally asking for responses from those living close to the Church. Thankfully at this stage there have been no objections. We hope to proceed with the planning process and when the final approval is given by Brisbane City Council in the next 6 weeks our architect will draw up detailed plans, advertise for builders and we hope to begin building by midyear. This has lots of implications for our everyday use of our Church and we hope to be able to use our Paloma centre for our Sunday Masses. Please pray that everything goes smoothly.

I have formed a committee to act as a think tank to help in the planning process for the refurbishment and extension of the Sunnybank Church. The committee consists of Lyn Smith, David Grace, Gerry de Ruyter, Pat Goh and Mike Spann. The committee has met several times already and one of the tasks of the committee is to assist in raising funds for the new Church. In the New Year the committee will be asking for your financial help by advertising items in the Church which you could assist in paying for. These items include new pews, new altar furniture (e.g. a new chair for the Priest, a new marble reading stand, work on the marble altar), new furniture in the Priests sacristy and working sacristy, new furniture in the Reconciliation rooms, a new Baptistry and many more items. We were taken back a little when the first quote came in for new pews costing $6000 each.
