If you are interested in doing a bit of landscape gardening over Easter and you need a few pavers – then, look no further! The pavers around the side entrance to OLR church need to be replaced and are looking for a new home – if you are interested please contact Fr Peter at the parish office.
Kid’s Club Update!
Returning next Sunday, 25th April is the OLR Kid’s Club. All younger parishioners are invited to be part of our children’s liturgy at the 9.30am Mass. Look forward to seeing you there!
OLR Caloundra SVDP Conference
Has received a donation of $1,149.14 from
Seasons IGA Caloundra which will go towards the upcoming Winter Appeal providing accommodation, food and basic necessities to those in need in the Caloundra area. Seasons IGA has been a long term supporter of Vinnies and we value their friendly assistance.

Supporting Our Parish
During these Covid days there are many ways to support your Parish. Since, because of Covid, we are not allowed to pass the collection plate around, many parishioners utilise the collection baskets (or the big drum at OLR) at the entrance to the church – thank you.
All our lives have been turned upside down during the past twelve months and suddenly “tap & go” has become a natural part of our daily lives – from buying your morning coffee to visiting the supermarket. Likewise, the “tap & go” machine at OLR, Unity and Maleny has been utilised by many parishioners and visitors to support the mission of the Parish. In many ways “tap & go” is the way of the future!
As always, direct debit through the planned giving programme provides your Parish with the ability to budget confidently in your support. With the restrictions on Mass numbers many have changed over to direct debit as an easy way to fulfil their financial commitment to the Parish. There are planned giving brochures at all our churches.
Whichever option you use, a grateful Parish says thank you for your generosity, commitment and trust.
Confirmation Program Starts Soon
The Parish sacramental program for Confirmation begins with the parent information evening on Wednesday, 28th April 2021 at 5pm.

If you have not already completed and returned your registration form to the Parish office, could you please do so before the information evening. If you would like to enrol your child in the Confirmation program, please contact the Parish office on email: [email protected] so that we can send you a registration form. Thank-you.
