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)

4-11-18 – Marriage Encounter 

Hi everyone, I hope you all enjoyed a bit of variety in priests and a bishop at last weekend’s masses. My weekend in Varrowville, NSW was an amazing and transformative experience. I was a participant on a Marriage Encounter Deeper Weekend. If you haven’t been on a weekend and you want to inject something new into your marriage, I highly recommend you attend next years in early August 2019. Check out www.wwme.org.au for more information. You’re probably wondering why is Fr Nev attending this weekend if he’s a priest? Well as I have discovered the sacraments of Marriage and Holy Orders are different but there are close similarities. In marriage, the two spouses are called and are committed to loving each other. In the vocation of Priesthood, my spouse is the people of God. That’s a lot of spouses!! LOL. I don’t think I was ever taught this at seminary!! It makes senses though!! Pope Francis has been reminding us priests, “to be shepherds with the smell of the sheep”. I need to deepen my relationship and become more intimate with you the people. Theologically we were taught that priests represent Christ and our spouse is Christ. So what a revelation!! In marriage, life inevitably becomes more complicated, children come along, work, school, family and Church commitments are a constant juggling act for parents. Within all of this spouses need to communicate effectively what is happening and in particular their feelings towards their beloved or any given situations. Making effective use of time together is vital for married couples to not simply survive but thrive in their vocation to selflessly love and honour the other. The Marriage Encounter weekend teaches couples to become more vulnerable with each. A weekend will help couples to learn how to dialogue with each other by identifying, listening and empathising with one’s and your spouse’s feelings in a deeper way. I was amazed at the transformation in couples and their genuine desire to initiate a new spark in their marriage. As for the 4 priests, it was a significant experience in our priestly ministry. We learnt to be more aware of behaviours and fears that could be influencing our relationship with our parishioners. I was able to articulate my fear of failure as an ongoing issue that I need to revisit in my priestly ministry. So let’s pray for married couples and our priests who are trying their best. We are also getting a seminarian to visit us over Advent. His name is Michael Tran and he will be with us from the 17th Nov to 16th Dec. Have a blessed week.

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.
