A warm welcome to......
St Mary's Catholic Parish
MARYBOROUGH - TIARO - ARAMARA
A warm welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Parish Maryborough. We are a welcoming community guided by the Holy Spirit and drawn together as one family to celebrate God our Father through the Sacraments in Worship to Jesus Christ our Saviour. As a faith-filled parish family, blessed with a wonderful primary and secondary school, we work to build up a community that serves one another as Jesus showed and taught us to proclaim God's love in all we say and do. “You must love one another, just as I have loved you.” (John 13:34). At St Mary’s parish, everyone is welcome to the home of Mary the Mother of Christ and our mother also as we seek to live out the gospel of Christ in a manner that impacts the life of all in our community and beyond.
We are eagerly waiting to welcome you with open arms whether you are new to Maryborough and looking for a parish to call home, or you are just a visitor in search of a nearby church to join for worship, or whether you are returning home to your Catholic faith, or you are just wanting to discern and learn a bit more about the Catholic Church. We trust this, our parish website, along with our Facebook page, may contain some useful resources that may help to satisfy your need.
We extend a warm welcome to Archbishop Mark Coleridge who has travelled from Brisbane to install Fr Lucius as Parish Priest of St Mary’s. This is the first opportunity that the Archbishop has had to visit Maryborough for some years. A couple of other Priests will be sharing a celebratory dinner after the Vigil Mass. Unfortunately, the Archbishop has to return home early on Sunday morning to attend to other commitments so he will not have time to meet parishioners on that day.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS APPEAL
The St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal will be launched next weekend to ensure that needy families here in Maryborough have the necessities of food and other requirements over the Christmas season. A representative will speak to the appeal and collectors will take the bags around so please come prepared with some extra cash if you wish to support this worthy cause.
