Pastor’s Welcome 2017-05-29T16:30:58+00:00


Welcome to the Ipswich Catholic Community. We hope that you and your family have an opportunity to come and visit our community at one of our churches sometime soon; you will always be welcome. The Ipswich Catholic Community is located in south-east Queensland and is approximately 40km south-west of Brisbane. Geographically, we cover a large area and in 2012 Archbishop Coleridge linked the parishes of Ipswich, Leichhardt, North Ipswich, and Rosewood to form the wonderful group of people you see today. We are passionate about going out into the world and sharing the Word of God and the Bread of Life to those we encounter. Pastoring our community requires a lot of work and is not done in isolation. Our Pastoral Team helps people encounter Christ in our liturgy when we meet together as friends, and to foster a thirst for the Living God both at Mass and when our families share their time with others away from our community celebrations.
