Our parish has organised groups that seek to meet the unique needs of the community that we serve.

Women’s Prayer and Friendship Group

The women’s prayer and friendship group meet on a Tuesday at 9.30 in the OLR Parish Centre next to the Parish Office. Women come together to share morning tea and fellowship then we have a short bible study discussion. We conclude by 10.45am with prayer. No need to commit to attend every week. Come whenever you are able. Everyone is most welcome.

Caloundra Hospitality Group

In the Bible, Jesus is often portrayed as eating and drinking with others and for that reason, hospitality and generosity are the two hallmarks of Christian living. In our culture, coffee and sharing a drink with someone helps to form points of connection and growth of friendships.

If you would like to be part of a motivated team who organise and provide hospitality at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, please contact our reception on 5430 9390 or [email protected]

Holy Communion to the Sick and Housebound

While we celebrate Mass regularly in this parish, there are many who, due to health, mobility or transport challenges, are unable to join the celebration. St Paul calls us to be the Body of Christ - that means we need to be diligent in remembering those who, while remaining faithful, are not with us. Every week, women and men from across the parish take the Body of our Lord to the sick and housebound but we are always looking for more.

Please contact the parish office for more information - [email protected]


Every week on Monday morning, parishioners gather to count the weekend collection. Neither Jesus, nor St Paul would have been able to effectively share the Good News without having the required resources and so helping count money forms an important cog in the parish machine.

If you would like to join a counting team, email Don Rolls - [email protected]
