This year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the foundation of St Joesph’s Parish Nambour.
The establishment of the Parish which previously had been part of the Caboolture Mission followed some years of itinerant ministry by priests from Caboolture in the South and Gympie in the North.
We are commemorating this anniversary with a Lunch to be held on Sunday, the 4th August, in the School Hall. Then there will be a Mass at which the Archbishop Mark Coleridge will preside. This is being held on Sunday, 18th August at 4.00pm. Please note that this will be the only Mass on that Sunday. The usual Evening Mass will still be held on Saturday, 17th August, at 6.00pm.
