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.
Good news! The Brisbane City Council has given approval for
our Church at Sunnybank to be refurbished and expanded.
BUT they have imposed several conditions concerning noise.
Some of these conditions include keeping all the windows and doors
in the Church closed, air-conditioning the Church and surfacing the back carpark with bitumen. Our architect and town planner, who have been assisting us through the process of making our application with the Council, are now
considering if we will object to these conditions (more information later).

CATHOLIC KIDS CLUB

At meetings children learn about their faith in a fun way

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.
