The Parish

Welcome to Holland Park and Mount Gravatt Catholic Parish. We are a family-focused Catholic parish with two churches; St Joachim’s at Holland Park and St Agnes at Mount Gravatt. In this community, you will find a hospitable welcome and a practical living of the Gospel in a variety of ministries and outreach to the wider community. We invite you to join us in our parish life – the vibrant Masses, groups and activities which bring us together as a family of God.

Safeguarding Children  & Vulnerable Adults Prevention and Protection Policy

… for it is to such as thee that the kingdom of God belongs.

The Archdiocese of Brisbane holds that children, young people and vulnerable adults are a gift from God with an intrinsic right to dignity of life, respect and security from physical and emotional harm.  They are to be treasured, nurtured and safeguarded by all.

This means that everyone in the church must ensure that the fundamental rights of children, young people and vulnerable adults are respected.  This will be achieved through the development of respectful relationships and a commitment to safety embracing appropriate boundaries, behaviours and practices, in accordance with the Archdiocesan Code of Ethical Behaviour and adherence to legislative imperatives of the State.   This policy applies to Clergy, Religious, Staff, Parishioners, Volunteers, Students on placement and Visitors to our sites.

Parish Streategic Plan

Today we begin a process that will lead our parish towards creating a 3-year strategic plan. The creation of this plan is a part of our effort as a Parish to plan for the growth and thriving of the Parish. The first step in this process is to dream as a parish about what could be possible in each of the ministry areas we are seeking to build up. On Saturday 16th July the whole parish is invited to gather for a Parish Summit where together we will take the next step dreaming together for the future of our parish.

We will be showing a different “Dreaming Video” at each Mass in the parish over the next 6 weekends, to explore with you what you think could be possible for this Parish?

This weekend we listen to Deacon Peter Pellicaan (Executive Director at Evangelisation Brisbane) dream about what a Liturgy ministry could look like in a parish. https://youtu.be/yko7k4zF9ZM
