 Lent is upon us and now there is an app for that.



Traditional Lenten programs are designed for groups. Evangelisation Brisbane assistant director Troy Tornabene was designing a Lenten program for 2020 it became apparent that individuals were not catered for in these programs so the idea for an app was born.  The project has come together quicker than was expected and the app is now available for Lent 2019.

The app offers most aspects of traditional Lenten group program – opening and closing prayer, Lenten Gospels with text and audio, Gospel reflections with text and video, personal reflection questions, lives of compassion stories with text and videos, and acts of compassion.

The app is available for $1.99 from the Google play and apple store, click the links below to get the app

Christmas is a tough time for many families and individuals in our local community.  Thanks to St Vincent de Paul Society these members of our community were able to share in the joy of Christmas.  Through the SVDP  Christmas Appeal many hampers, filled with food, Christmas treats and toys were delivered to those families and individuals in need of a hand up.  

Special thanks to all the supporters of this Appeal - for the generosity of their donations and assisting with the sorting, packing and delivery of the hampers.  Through the Christmas Hamper Appeal, the gift of hope for a brighter 2019 has been given to others.

Let us pray for the Vincentians at St Rita's, who offer support and comfort during the whole year to our community's vulnerable.  

"Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance."
St Vincent de Paul"

Now's your chance to have your say on what do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time? The last time the Catholic Church in Australia held a Plenary Council was in 1937. It has been more than 80 years since we gathered all of the Church together and much has changed. In 2020, we will have a Plenary Council about the future of the Catholic Church in Australia. What are we called to do? Who are we called to be? How do we need to change? Pope Francis has spoken of the need to engage in the world and respond in faith. We are having two small group sessions planned using Meeting Room or Church at St Rita's Victoria Point on: 1. Tuesday 27 Nov 10.00am – 11.00am (Start with tea/coffee) 2. Wednesday 28 Nov 7.00pm – 8.00pm To learn more about the Plenary council please go to:…/ If you would like to respond separately as an individual, couple, group or family you can also do so via the link below.…/have-your-say/ Please help shape the future of our Church.
