Our parish embraces Nambour, Kenilworth, Palmwoods, Yandina and Bli Bli
“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
MAY 16-22 NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK
As we commence National Volunteer Week— We pray “For all who serve as volunteers in a multitude of settings within the Church and wider community: that their witness of faith and generosity of service will reveal the face of Christ to
those for whom they care.”
On Sunday June 19th (Feast of Corpus Christi), at the 8am Mass, the sacrament of Holy Eucharist will be celebrated for the children who have successfully completed their preparation process. Following the 8am Mass that day we invite the First Eucharist Families, together with the entire Parish to join in a BYO picnic in the grounds of the Good Samaritan Centre at 9:00am.
CHANGE IN MASS TIMES SURVEY
The Parish Leadership Team has received some feedback from parishioners requesting a change to the Sunday Mass time for the winter months. Following discussion by the Leadership Team, we thought it best to canvass the thoughts of parishioners about Mass times in general.
We would like you to vote on the proposals, by answering three short questions.
Please return your comments by Sunday May 15th to the suggestion box at Masses on the weekend, or deliver to the Parish office. Thank you
