The parish of Banyo Nundah in Brisbane is celebrating the first anniversary of Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament within the parish.

His Grace, Archbishop Coleridge, is celebrating Mass with the parish on Thursday, August 22nd, 2013, at 7pm at Corpus Christi Church, Nundah, to mark the occasion.

There will be supper afterwards in Nolan Hall and Fr Paul Chandler, the Parish Priest, asks people to please, if possible, bring a plate of savoury or sweet to share.

Father David Nugent, a newly ordained priest from the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist, will arrive in Queensland this Friday 29 June 2012 to give Perpetual Adoration Missions at Banyo-Nundah Parish and also in Toowoomba.  He will also give various retreats while here.

Details and times of the missions and retreats to which all are welcome can be found here: litany-of-the-most-holy-eucharist-july-mission-details.  [On page one is the Liturgy of the Blessed Sacrament, and on page two is the list of venues and times].

Come and find out how Eucharistic Adoration can change your life.

“The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help bring about an everlasting peace on earth.”  — Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

From March 14-19, 2012, there will be a Eucharistic Mission in Brisbane.  Perhaps this could be something extra to take advantage of during Lent?  The following information is from the flyer for the event:

“Fr Hugh Thomas CssR. is a missionary member of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer. He has preached missions in Australia and overseas for many decades. In 2009 he preached a mission at Holy Spirit, Bray Park, prior to us beginning Perpetual Adoration, Villa Maria. Fr. Hugh as a missionary spent over 22 years in the Philippines. During that time he had a roving mission going from village to village preaching, administering the sacraments and training lay leaders. He has just completed 12 years in Western Australia, where he conducted many retreats and parish missions. For the last 7 years he has spent a couple of months each year in Indonesia and Singapore giving retreats to priests and promoting adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. With Fr.Doug Harris, a diocesan priest of Perth, he has helped establish 30 chapels of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in different islands of Indonesia. Fr. Hugh has recently been transferred by his congregation from Perth to Sydney. He has the wisdom and maturity of a seasoned missioner who has heard it all and has helped many who have come to him as a representative of Jesus Christ. We are fortunate to have him in Brisbane for a week to help us grow closer to Jesus truly present in the most Holy Eucharist.”
