News from around our Community

Have you also considered volunteering in some way?

Many people in our parish communities volunteer their time and share their gifts to enable our liturgies and parish community to be an effective witness of Jesus to others. However, there is always room for others to be involved and to participate in the life of the parish community.  At the doors of the Church there are ―Ministry Forms with a range of ministries listed. We invite and encourage you to collect one of these forms and consider how you may be involved and share your strengths with the Parish community. You can also contact our parish office at ipswich@bne.catholic.au for a form to be emailed to you.
