Parish News & Events This Week May 27, 2021

Trinity Sunday

Ignite Launch Event and Request for Sponsorship

A small contingent of our youth and young adults recently attended the annual Ignite Launch event at Dreamworld.

This event is comprised of two aspects: first, a day filled with adventure, rides, and WAY too much fun – we had a blast hanging out together, catching up with friends from across the Archdiocese, and meeting new people along the way. Second, the day concluded with an epic rally, where all 438 attendees gathered together for an evening of praise and worship ‘in’ Dreamworld after the park closed to the public. We also received a sneak preview of the Ignite Conference in September. Ignite Conference is a four-day event for high school-aged children, young adults and even ‘not-so-young’ adults like Fr Josh.

We are in the process of raising money to pay for the Conference registration fees and are aiming at having 30 Unity College Students join us for this Catholic mountain top experience – four days of fun, faith, learning and worship. We’re encouraging all the parish faithful to get behind this initiative so if you are able and would like to ‘sponsor a student’, please contact Fr Josh directly: [email protected]

What’s For Dinner?

As a faith community we all have a responsibility to encourage our young women and men to consider a life of leadership and service in the church. Each year the Archbishop hosts two dinners at Wynberg, his residence at New Farm for those discerning their vocation to the priesthood or religious life. The dinner for women discerning religious life is on Tuesday, June 8th at 6pm. The dinner for men exploring the priesthood is on Tuesday, June 17th at 6pm.

Anyone interested should contact one of your priests here at Caloundra or email the Vocations Director, Fr Stanley Orji at [email protected]

It is a timely to keep in our prayers William Iulian who spent 2019 with us as part of his final preparation towards priesthood. William will be ordained in June. Also we pray for our own seminarian from Mooloolah, Dylan Asmus who is half way through his first year at Banyo Seminary. As a Catholic Community we are grateful for their witness and generosity.


Baptism Preparation Evening for Infants

Those parents with new born babies wishing for them to be baptised are reminded of the preparation meeting which takes place at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, Caloundra, this Thursday 3rd June, beginning at 7pm. At this short preparation meeting we outline some of the symbols used at the ceremony, answer any questions and confirm dates. To book in for the preparation evening and to receive the necessary paperwork please contact the Parish Office on 5430 9390 or email [email protected]



Please note if you have a key for the glass sliding door for the Parish Centre, it no longer works.

You will need to come into the Parish office between 9am-1pm Mon-Fri to collect a new key.
