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.

Pilgrim Virgin Statue
With the month of May approaching now is a good time to commit to praying the Rosary every day. The Rosary will bring great peace and holiness to your life. The Rosary is the best method of honouring Mary. Invite a Pilgrim Virgin statue into your home and pray the Rosary everyday while it is there. The statue usually stays with each family for one week. The statue may be taken away after the 8am Mass on Saturday at St Mary’s.
The purpose of the Pilgrim Virgin Statue home family visitation is to aid families in responding to the requests made by the Blessed Mary during her apparitions at Fatima. The essence of her requests is threefold: return to God; make reparation for sins; pray the Rosary for Peace. To arrange for a home family visitation of the Pilgrim Virgin Statue from May to October please contact the Parish Office.
