With the upheaval due to Covid over the last week and Fr Paul having a few days off we have had to make a few adjustments to some of the events that were planned

  • There will be no Weekday Mass at St Paschals this week or next week.
  • Tuesday at St Gerards there will be a Liturgy & Communion instead of mass for this week and next.
  • The Sausage Sizzle for Jack after the 4:30 Mass has been cancelled, but there will still be a presentation to Fr Jack during the mass.
  • The Movie Night for this coming Friday is CANCELLED.
  • The Thanksgiving Mass at St Mary’s Ipswich is now this coming Saturday 10 July at 10am.
  • There are still a few spaces on the bus to Ipswich for Fr Jack’s Thanksgiving Mass, if you would like to come on the bus please contact the Parish Office no later than Wednesday .
  • If you know of anyone who would like to be on the Parish email list please ask them to contact the Parish Office.

As always thank-you for your understanding and patience during these topsy turvy times.

Stay safe and God Bless

Welcome to the website of Our Lady of the Angels’ Parish, Chermside. Our Parish was formed on 2 August, 2013 amalgamating the 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 parish primary school, 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 gratefully acknowledge here the generous service of Fr Gerard McMorrow in the amalgamation and formation of this Parish from 2002-2020 and we wish him all the best and God’s many blessings in his new ministry.
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 and Majella Early Years Child Care.
I am immensely proud of the vitality of our communities and volunteers 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.
