OSHC (Outside Hours School Care)

centacare1

Our Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is part of the Holy Family Catholic Parish, and is located within the Holy Family Primary School Indooroopilly. The service has been operating under Centacare Child Care Services since 2006 and is currently licensed to provide care for 59 children whose ages range from prep-year 6.

Our OSHC program supports working families in the school by providing quality care to children of school age. Our service works closely with the Parish and school to ensure children are happy, safe and have a variety of resources.

We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment for children to grow and learn and be happy. We believe in fostering children’s independence and diversity, and incorporate their ideas into the program to support them in their journey of discovery and growth. Through planned and unplanned experiences children will practice social skills, enjoy free play indoors and outdoors, develop life skills, relax, and be challenged.

We foster and support diversity, and encourage children to respect and value the uniqueness, spirituality and individuality of each and every person.

Opening Hours

After School Care: Monday – Friday (3-6pm)

12th January – Baptism of our Lord 

Hi everyone, we’re almost finished the Christmas Season and blessings for 2019 to you all. While I was away we celebrated the Feasts of the Holy Family; the Epiphany and this week the Baptism of our Lord. During my break, I stayed at the Port Macquarie parish in the Lismore Diocese. Being a coastal parish, their masses on the weekend were full of parishioners and visiting tourists. The parish priest Fr Paul Gooley (a distant relative of Rev. Deacon Anthony Gooley) was a great host. He has two cats: Regina and Hylton. They both have sections in the newsletter: From the Cat-acombs: Episco-puss Wisdom and From the Cat-echism. LOL!! Hylton unfortunately had to be put down while I was there. May he purr in peace!! Closer to home though, it’s my hope in 2019, to do several things. 1. First facilitate a weekend where we as a parish respond to the Plenary Council 2020. Remember the question we are all asked to reflect on is “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” We need your help to make this a fruitful and parish building exercise. Stay posted on how you can help. 2. Secondly we hope to run two Alphas this year to invite new and un-churched people into our community and build a culture of raising up leaders and servants. They will be scheduled for the 7th March and August 22nd, 2019. They will be run on Thursday nights in the Morgan Howe Rooms under the Church. 3. Thirdly towards the end of the year, music during our masses definitely dropped in standard. This was partly of my own doing by removing the paid cantors and musicians from our Sunday and Saturday night Masses. I did this to remind us that our Eucharist is not a concert where someone is performing for us!! The mass must involve us all as participants and even better we should be lead well in praising and worshiping God. My hope is to invite more of you to help sing and play music to enhance our worship at Mass. If you love to help us with making music at this parish the best it can be please contact myself. 4. Finally we need more volunteers for a whole heap of ministries around the parish!! We need more counters to count the weekend masses (takes 1 hour each month); we need more communion ministers and readers especially at the Sat night and Sunday night; we need more projectionists at each Mass; we need a Local Safeguarding Rep (LSR) to help guide the parish on how to protect our young people and those who are vulnerable from abuse and harm. We congratulate the newly born son of Jim and Saritha Joseph in your prayers (Sunday 8am and Wed mass). He was born one month premature at the RBWH last Saturday, so please keep the whole family in your prayers Blessings Fr Nev

Blessings to you all,

Fr Nev Blessings Fr Nev

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.
