52 Oriel Road Clayfield Q 4011 Weekend Mass Times - Sunday 8am and 5.30pm | Weekday Mass time: Thursday 9am


The Eucharist, meaning ‘thanksgiving’, is the central act of worship of the Church. It may also be referred to as ‘Mass’ or the ‘Lord’s Supper’.The Eucharist is a many faceted celebration. It is a memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection and a pledge of future glory. It is a sacrament of love and a sign of unity. It is a paschal banquet and a source of unending grace. Ultimately, it is the summit and source of the Christian life.

In the celebration of Eucharist, the Church’s desire to become more like Christ is strengthened. Through signs, symbols, actions, song, prayers and the Word of God, the Church makes present the mystery of God’s saving work in Christ. By recalling Christ’s unconditional sacrificial love, Christians are more closely united to Christ and each other, and renewed in their daily endeavour to live life in the service of others.

The Eucharist has a four part structure: The Introductory Rites, The Liturgy of the Word, The Liturgy of the Eucharist and the Concluding Rites. The Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist are central and intimately connected, forming one act of worship. Christ is truly present in the people gathered, the presiding priest, the Word and the Eucharistic species. A variety of ministries, under the leadership of the priest, serve the people’s prayer and enable an ordered and effective celebration of the liturgy.

It is the joy and duty of Christians everywhere to gather in the Lord’s name to celebrate the Eucharist, especially on Sundays and holy days.

In the year when the children turn 9 (Year 4), and only after having been baptised and confirmed are welcomed to the Lord’s Table to receive Holy Communion for the first time. Details of the full program will be advertised in both both the Parish and School newsletters.
