The Church building at Our Lady of Lourdes Sunnybank is slowly getting
underway. Fences have been put up around the site for safety. This has caused some problem with parking for weekday Mass and other activities during the week. We hope to resolve some of the parking problems for weekdays. On Saturday night and
Sunday there will still be parking on the grassed area at the back of the Church.
CELEBRATING MASS IN PALOMA
Celebrating Mass in Paloma at Sunnybank has been a good experience so far. At the larger Masses at 10.30am and 6.00pm, there are some people standing. Instead of standing at the back of the hall there is plenty of room on the driveway beside
Paloma. You will notice we have added extra speakers in the hall and outside to
enhance the sound. I ask you that you move towards the centre of the hall to allow all the seats to be used during Mass.
Over the last 3 weeks we have been counting the number of people attending Masses in both our churches. At Sunnybank the counting shows that over the 3 weeks including moving into the Paloma for Mass, the numbers have slightly
increased. At Acacia Ridge since the last official count Saturday evening Mass has been celebrated. Numbers at Acacia Ridge on Sunday morning have grown
slightly since the last official count.
