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)

17-11-19 – Euthanasia Week

Hi everyone, this week across the country, the Catholic Church is focussing our attention on the issue of euthanasia and assisted suicide. In your newsletter will be three resources pertaining to the topic. This issue has advanced considerably in other countries and still remains controversial. Please take the time to read and reflect on the facts. I encourage you to continue to research and raise the issue with friends and family in conversation. The Church has remained clear on its position: that the upholding of life remains paramount. The dignity of any dying human being can still be achieved without ending life. Life ultimately is started and ended by God. This does not lessen the pain and fear that some medical conditions can cause for the person. The majority of pain can be controlled through well administered palliative care. According to the facts, specialists in this area are inadequate to meet the growing demand of patients. Let’s pray we can educate more people in the ethics and practical concerns facing our society regarding these issues. Whilst I’m away there will be no Wednesday or Friday masses. Wednesday will still have Adoration, no Benediction and there will be Liturgy of the Word with Communion. There will be no mass or liturgy at all on Friday. There will still be Rosary at 8:10am in the Holy Family School sacred space. Thanks to all our helpers and participants at the Plenary Council: Listening and Discernment Gathering on Wednesday night. Thanks Lorraine Wynne from EB for facilitating the discernment process. We had 30 people present. I think there were 13 people from our Parish. Well done everyone for your availability, serving and providing wonderful hospitality. I believe our small group discussions were excellent and will have contributed to this particular section of Humble, Healing and Merciful. In my group, I heard others speak about confusion in the world and the Church. This confusion though can lead us to a place of vulnerability which is hope-filled in God’s Spirit leading us. We are also called to reconciliation. To reconcile ourselves with God and his people with humility and encouraged by His tender mercy. God is waiting for us, waiting for a response that comes from the Spirit and not from haste. There was a sense that we are in a safe place to share. We are called to be creative in engaging the broken, the poor, the young and the elderly. We are called to be a people, a community that lives in action not just in words – mercy, healing and humility. Stay well till I see you next. 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.
