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 welcome Roger and Joan Lhuillier to our Parish this weekend who will share their first hand experiences while working with Catholic Mission. The posters on dis-play for the appeal tell the story of the essential work of the Good Shepherd Sisters in Thailand as they reach out to vulnerable mothers and their babies in their time of greatest need. In his World Mission Day message for 2021, Pope Francis invites us to respond to what we have seen and heard, to carry those stories, like Churai’s, in our hearts calling us to be missionary disciples by sharing and supporting vital work like this.
WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY:
St Mary’s Primary School is celebrating with a special liturgy on Friday 29th October 9:30am in the school hall and invites parishioners to come along. All the teachers at the school are valued and highly respected, they go above and beyond in their own time to plan the amazing activities for the students to ensure school is a place for learning and also a place of safety and fun.
Majella has sewn a super cover for the basket which some lucky person will win filled to the brim with goodies. Only non-perishable items are required and may be left in the baskets in the church or dropped off at the office in working hours. Tickets @ $2 each or 3 for $5 will be on sale shortly before Mass so if you are willing to assist, we might be able to set up a roster. With just under 6 weeks to go until the Christmas Bazaar and Carol Singing, the committee is working hard to ensure that the event has something for everyone. Let’s all get into the spirit and make this a truly great social occasion while raising much needed funds.
