“Building a community of Jesus' disciples”
St. Joseph’s Catholic Parish strives to be a community of the Lord’s disciples in the Nambour, Kenilworth, Palmwoods, Yandina and Bli Bli areas of the Sunshine Coast. Ours is an energetic community which provides varieties of opportunities for ministry within the Church for the building up of the Body of Christ. In this way we hope to equip ourselves and our Church to proclaim the reign of God in our world.
We welcome you to connect with our Parish communities and especially in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at either St Joseph Nambour, St John Bosco Kenilworth or at Palmwoods. We invite you to register on the Parish Census by completing our Parish Census form (via the button below). Should you require additional information that is not covered by this website, please don't hesitate to contact our Parish office.
Peace and blessing upon you and your family,
Fr Odinaka Nwadike

PRAYER PETITION BOX
In commemoration of her Feast day on 8th August, a Prayer Petition box will be placed at the Shrine to St Mary of the Cross MacKillop situated near the Reconciliation Room from the weekend of 6th and 7th August. All petitions will be "collectively included" in the Prayers of Intercession at all weekend Masses celebrated for the month. If you come to weekday Masses, the box will remain near the Altar and you can place your petition there. Your petitions are treated with the utmost confidentiality.
PRAYER FOR PEACE BETWEEN RUSSIA AND UKRAINE
God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine and Russia today.
We pray for реaсе and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or реасе,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at-risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Реасе.
As our numbers have decreased during these times, we still need to cover our usual costs - rates, electricity, keeping our churches maintained. If you would like to continue giving, even when you can’t make it to church, please consider a regular direct debit. Please click here for more information. We thank you for your support.
