Meet The Team


Claire Forbes -  I’m currently finishing up my microbiology degree at the University of Queensland, having recently finished two years of full-time high school and university chaplaincy. In my free time I make coffee and bagels for the hungry citizens of Red Hill, compete with my sister for who can get more steps in a day, and play guitar in worship of the Lord. The first time I walked into this parish, I was greeted like long-lost family and made to feel welcome, and a part of something bigger than myself - that wasn’t something I could walk away from! I am passionate about creating spaces for people to feel loved and welcomed, where they can grapple with big issues and discover what it means to be in relationship with God.

Justin Bouchard – I am a Canadian born man from Edmonton, Alberta coming from a history filled with youth ministry. Just recently finished 3 year stretch with an organisation called NET Ministries, and now I am currently living in Australia and enjoying whatever God may throw at me. At the moment, only working part time with Holy Family Youth. But I couldn’t be happier to be serving with this parish and all the incredible, and loving people here at Holy Family . I love to draw, play sport, and always be a helping hand to someone when they need it.

From Father Nev

5-4-20 – Palm Sunday

Hi everyone,

From the beginning of Lent and in the month where COVID-19 has changed the world we arrive at the start of Holy Week. We recall Jesus entering the city where he is lauded as King, Son of David. Many at the time believed the Messiah would save them Roman occupation. There were those too who wanted to crucify Jesus as his claims of being the Son of God were blasphemous. We too are living in uncertain times. Business as usual does not help our situation. We are living in a moment of time of incredible change, change that has been imposed. People are having to work from home, families and friends are forced to spend more time together and maintain social distancing. What a complete irony!! People are losing jobs, worrying about rent, studies and mortgages. People are anxious about remaining productive, meeting deadlines and accomplishing goals Equally people have more time. There is time to sit still and be rather than be caught in that trap of needing to be busy. We have time to spend in prayer and reflect on. There is an opportunity to ask ourselves what truly satisfies me? What is important to me? Were the things I was pursuing pre Corona helping me to grow and making me happy? Am I at peace in my Spirit with where my life is or am I realising that I’ve been on a treadmill. God is using COVID-19 to put the brakes on and encourage us to accept the change. He’s gracing us with the chance of stopping and resetting our priorities. He’s gently asking how would YOU like to respond. Deep in each of us where God resides we know what God is calling us to do. God wants all of us to be happy and he is opening that door to make some intentional and positive changes to our lives. What routines bring me life? Which ones bring me death and pain? This weekend lookout for a video reflection and I’ll be attempting to live stream Mass at 8:30am Sunday. We still don’t know who’s is comping to replace me yet.

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.

Dr. Chris Hanlon — The Reformation a Catholic perspective, 8 August 7:30pm Holy Family Catholic Church, Indooroopilly
