VISITS TO THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

You can now make a booking to visit the Blessed Sacrament at Mary Immaculate Church on Sundays. Due to restrictions and other requirements you must make a booking online.

In the Archdiocese of Brisbane the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been suspended. We are reminded that when grave causes prevent us from attending Sunday Mass “it is specially recommended that the faithful… engage in prayer for an appropriate amount of time personally or in a family…” (CCC, 2183). See some suggestions at our website here.


WORDS IN THE WEEK

Once a week we publish a new video from one of the Fathers giving a short talk on various spiritual topics. These can be viewed on Facebook or Youtube where you can also receive a notification by subscribing to our Youtube channel.


FUTURE UPDATES

The Archdiocese of Brisbane and the State Government have composed a plan towards reopening the community including churches. We are aware that these plans may change but the current projected plan is as follows:

  • 12 June: An increase of up to 20 people in a church at a time.
  • 10 July: An increase of up to 100 people in a church at a time.
