Purification of BVM @ Mary Immaculate Church

Purification of BVM @ Mary Immaculate Church

Join us for a Missa Cantata to celebrate the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary which recalls that forty days after the birth of Our Lord, Mary presented herself and the child Jesus in the Temple to fulfil the rites of purification. In this place the prophet Simeon foretold that this child would be a light to the gentiles and the glory of His people Israel. As per the tradition on this day, immediately after Mass there will be the opportunity for people to have their candles blessed, that they will use at home during the year for prayer and devotion.

Women’s Secular Oratory @ Mary Immaculate Church
Feb 5 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Women's Secular Oratory @ Mary Immaculate Church

Inspired by St Philip Neri, Women’s Secular Oratory are evening sessions of prayer for women based on the classic model of mental prayer. The sessions include a meditation, that is, a brief reading from a spiritual work or scripture and a short talk on the reading, followed by time for silent prayer. Then, to help us apply to our lives from what we have gathered from the reading and prayer, this is followed by a discussion to aid us in forming concrete resolutions that we can apply to our lives. The sessions last for one hour. We encourage you to come along and be a part of something that will help you to grow in Christian perfection and empower you to live out the mission of the laity.

Ash Wednesday @ Mary Immaculate Church
Mar 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Ash Wednesday @ Mary Immaculate Church | Tarragindi | Queensland | Australia

Today we begin the 40 day period of penance in the lead up Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection from the dead. This day is known as Ash Wednesday, as in the Mass ashes are imposed on our heads as a sign of conversion, penance, fasting and human mortality, a practice which comes from ancient times. We are reminded that from dust we came, and to share in the resurrection of Christ, to dust we shall first return. The ashes serve as a humiliation in which we seek to, in union with Christ, appease God for our sins so that we may receive the promise of eternal life. Since lent is a time of penance and extra prayer, today we ought to reflect on what penances and spiritual practices we will practice during lent.

Mass Times: 6:30am OF St John Fisher; 9:00am OF Mary Immaculate; 7:30pm EF Missa Cantata Mary Immaculate.

Mary of the Cross MacKillop @ Mary Immaculate Church
Aug 8 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Mary of the Cross MacKillop @ Mary Immaculate Church

Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop is Australia’s first canonised Saint. While a laywoman she became a teacher, but eventually began to yearn for a strictly penitential form of religious life. Her spiritual director Fr Tenison-Woods established the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, to which she was the first member and Superior. They were to live in poverty, trusting in God’s Providence, and dedicate themselves to educating poor children. She faced many struggles in getting her schools running but persevered in her trials. She is a great model for us and a wonderful reminder that we too can become saints. At this Solemn High Mass we invite the clergy of the diocese and encourage all people to join us in praising God for Australia’s Saint and asking for her intercession.

EF Solemn High Mass 7:00pm at Mary Immaculate.
