The Brisbane East Deanery Trivia Night last Saturday night was a great success. A great time was had by all, especially one of our St Thomas’ teams who were the winners on the night. The ‘Love Queensland Actually’ team led by Bob & Claire Longland took first place. Congratulations to the whole team - it’s great to have the trophy back at Camp Hill!
FROM THE BRISBANE DEANERY TRIVIA NIGHT TEAM:
Thank you for your generous support of the Deanery Trivia Night. The 24 raffle prize winners have been notified. The evening was a great success with $4,090 being raised to help with Deanery activities: scripture study courses, secretary’s day for parish offices, and other deanery supported events, groups and activities. Special thanks to all those involved. Congratulations to St Thomas’ Parish for winning the trophy for 2019.
The Parish of St Thomas the Apostle, Camp Hill, is a small but vibrant Christian community which seeks to live out the gospel values of compassion, hospitality and justice. We strive to model our community on the missionary work of St. Thomas, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, who carried the Good News of the love and forgiveness of God to the people in his own world and out as far as India.
For over 80 years, up until December 2013, the Parish was under the pastoral care of the priests from the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. The first Parish Priest was Fr. Arthur Perkins MSC. In January 2014 the Archdiocese of Brisbane accepted the responsibility for providing a priest to serve in the Parish and
Fr. Peter Casey was the first Archdiocesan Priest to be appointed to the Parish.
Fr Peter retired on 29th January 2017 and on 5th February 2017, St Thomas' welcomed our new Parish Priest, Fr Christopher Obi, who was officially installed as Parish Priest by Archbishop Mark Coleridge on Saturday 29th April.
We are blessed to include both long standing senior members and many young families in our parish, many of whom contribute to the running of daily parish life. Our Parish School is also an integral part of the mission of the Parish.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office if you have any questions or would like to find out more about the Parish.
