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.
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.
PARISH SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM - CONFIRMATION
We are currently organising the program for children in year 3 or above who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation will be celebrated on Thursday 11th November 2021 at 6pm in St Mary’s Church.
Weekly classes will be held in the lead-up to the Sacrament being administered by Fr Adrian Farrelly who is the Priest nominated by the Archbishop to perform this duty. Classes will commence the week of 11th October at a time and day to be advised once the enrolment forms and other documentation is returned to the parish office. These may be emailed if more convenient for you.
If you know of any families with children of this age who have been baptised Catholic and may wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, please ask them to contact the parish office during office hours.
Eligible children must be 8 years or older and have been baptised Catholic. Proof of this is required, together with a copy of the child’s Birth Certificate.
