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.
This week we celebrate the Easter Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We are lucky to live in Australia as our major Christian celebration days are holidays and some days with no shops open. The holidays provide us with a welcome break but also provides us time to really celebrate Easter by attending all the Easter ceremonies of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday beginning with Easter Vigil (7pm Sunnybank and 6pm Acacia Ridge).
During Holy Thursday evening Mass we will take up a special collection for Soubirous Place and St Vincent de Paul, as well as the Project Compassion money boxes and envelopes which can be given in at the offertory time.
You are invited to bring a flower to the Good Friday ceremonies which can be brought forward at the time of the Adoration of the Cross. These Flowers will then be used in the Church Easter weekend.
Of particular note is that the Easter Vigil at Our Lady of Lourdes is 7pm (not 6pm) and at Our Lady of Fatima at 6pm.
Following the Easter Vigil at Sunnybank you are invited to join the new Catholics for a little celebration in the Avocado Room in Paloma. You are requested to bring a plate that doesn’t need to be heated.
For the next 5 weeks there will be no Mass in our parishes on Tuesday.
There will be a Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist at 8:30am at Sunnybank for the next 5 Tuesdays until Fr Noy returns from holidays. We hope to be able to celebrate Mass each Thursday at 8:30am at Our Lady of Fatima Acacia Ridge. Circumstances such as unexpected funerals may change weekday Mass schedule.

This Mass is especially for you. All are welcome from
those who have recently retired to the most senior
parishioners. A special invitation is extended to those new

FEAST DAY OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA
To celebrate Our Lady of Fatima Feast Day and
60 years of Our Lady of Fatima School,
Archbishop Coleridge will celebrate 9am Mass
at Acacia Ridge on May 4th. All welcome.
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.
