Our Lady of Graces Catholic Parish Carina
Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Graces Catholic Parish, Carina. I hope you find our website useful, with answers to any questions you may have. Please feel free to ring the parish office if there is anything further we may be able to do for you.

Since its very beginning, just over 50 years ago, Our Lady of Graces has been a Dominican parish, staffed by a community of Dominican friars. We belong to one of the older religious orders in the Church, founded by St Dominic in the early years of the 13th century. Dominic wanted to help people towards a deeper relationship with God through a better understanding of what God has revealed to us about himself and about what God has made possible for us.

Whether you are already one of our parishioners or not, we would welcome any ideas about how we could improve this website. If you are considering joining our parish community, we ask you to fill in the folder for new parishioners at the back of the church, and we will do our best to make you feel  ‘at home.’

TRAINING SESSION for volunteers on Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults
The Archdiocese of Brisbane believes 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.

The Archdiocese has advised that we are to run a training session for all our volunteers who are involved with ministries and committees especially those involving children or vulnerable adult ministries. The training session will be held on Sunday 17th July at 10.15am (after the 9am Mass) in the parish library. The session will last around 3 hours. Troy Tornabene from the Archdiocese of Brisbane will be leading the session. Please write your name on the list at the church entrance if you will be attending as this will give Troy an indication of how many parishioners to expect.

At our Masses on the Weekend of 2/3 July we will have a special celebration for NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC Week runs from 3 to 10 July 2016 and allows us to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

SVDP Update
Thank you for all the wonderful food and pyjama donations! A special thank you to all the very talented women of the Parish craft group who this week kindly donated a range of beautiful winter beanies, blankets and scarves and the wonderful families at St Martin's who donated to the annual soup appeal (over 800 cans of soup were donated). The soup and winter woollies were provided to clients on our weekly bread run (from the flour monkey bakery) and to quote one client, a young mum, "thank you to all for caring so much about my family"! This makes our role so worthwhile and not possible without your generous support. Thank you as always.
