About St Mary’s Catholic Parish
Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Parish in South Brisbane. St Mary’s church is one of the finest Italian Romanesque and Renaissance churches in Brisbane. It was built in 1893. It is a place of prayer, healing and celebration. St Mary’s Parish is a Christ-centred Eucharistic community in which people of many cultures worship God and inspire each other to live the Gospel message. Our Mission is to know Christ and to make Him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other Sacraments, and our active concern for pastoral care. St Mary’s church is dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mary, Queen of heaven and earth, invites all who enter this sanctuary to appreciate their own fundamental worth and destiny. We are brothers and sisters beyond all distinctions of race, religion, nationality or economic class. Here we encounter the gracious mystery within whose presence we journey through life.

The Parish Newsletter is a great place for local businesses to advertise and we still have a few available spots. The tone and feel of the advertising is important to the Parish and we are seeking businesses that stand for the same values as our church. I would like to ask all parishioners to consider taking the newsletter to the businesses they use on a daily basis, ones that you would be happy to recommend to your friends and family to ask if they would be interested in advertising on a monthly or yearly basis. Businesses to consider would be Accountants, Financial Planning, Hairdressers, Dentists, Medical Centres, Banks etc.
