Website Welcome From Fr Gerard

Welcome to the website of Our Lady of the Angels’ Parish, Chermside. Our Parish was formed on 2 August, 2013 from the former parishes of St Paschal Baylon, Wavell Heights and St Gerard Majella, Chermside West.
St Paschal’s developed in the 1930’s and it grew to a thriving community with a dynamic school (also called Our Lady of the Angels).
With the growth in the Western part of the parish, the West Chermside community was split off into a new parish, St Gerard’s, in the early 1970’s.
Over time, the two parishes went their separate ways until Archbishop Bathersby asked me to administer both communities in 2010. We then worked towards merging to form our new parish, taking the name of the school and the suburban name of Chermside.
I hope you will enjoy looking around the website to see the range of ministries and activities under- taken in our Parish and links to our Our Lady of the Angels’ Parish School, Wavell Out of Hours Child Care, Majella Early Years Child Care and the Loft Student Accommodation.
I am immensely proud of the vitality of our communities and assure you of a very warm welcome should you decide to celebrate with us at weekend Masses or participate in any of our other events.
Fr Gerard McMorrow PP
