Welcome to the Gatton Laidley Parish. We are located in the South-West region of the Archdiocese of Brisbane. On this site there is information about our parish which we hope you will find interesting, informative and a convenient source of information about our parish life and community.
If you are new to the Parish we invite you to fill in the Parish Census form (available from the Forms & Downloads section) so we may extend a personal welcome. Please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office if you have any questions or would like to find out more about the Parish.
Sacramental Journey 2019
All families will be meeting with Father Noy over the next few weeks - if you have not been contacted as yet, please call the Parish Office to make a time. We also encourage you to send in photos of the Sacred Space that your child has set up at home - we would love to include them on our website to encourage everyone to do the same.
RAFFLE for funds towards new Organ for St Mary's Church
Thank you to everyone in our parish community who has donated or assisted with the fundraising since Christmas last year. We are about a quarter of the way to the target of
$ 20,000 and currently there is a fantastic Mother's Day raffle underway. Over $ 1,000 in voucher prizes are available to win, with tickets as $ 2 each, 6 for $ 10 or $ 18 a book of 10 tickets. Tickets available after Mass, at the schools and Parish Office.
St Patrick's Laidley - Centenary 2019
It is wonderful to see the whole parish joining in the history research, the recipe gathering and the conversations around special memories of St Patrick's Church.
Commemorative green polo shirts are still available - $ 20 per child, and $ 25 per adult. A 25% discount applies for orders of 3 or more shirts.
Sunday 26th May is for those are keen to join in a game of Kanga Cricket - if not, just sit and watch, have a BBQ and enjoy the day.
Archbishop Mark will be visiting the parish at the end of October, and the Centenary Mass will be held on Sunday 27th October, followed by a lunch and historical display.
We are hopeful that past Parish Priest (now Bishop) Michael McCarthy will be able to visit the parish sometime during this centenary year.
