Voices of the parishioners from St Agnes Church

Celebrating mass with the parishioners of St Agnes church about 90 mins drive from Gladstone. The Gladstone priests visit once a month. The parishioners take turns to bring the Word to the attendees. A wonderful feeling of family and community felt by all.

Laura – As Women of Worth group we try to outreach our regional church as they may not have a lot of contact with the Star of the Sea Parish. To let them know that we think about them.

Johvi – Fantastic. The people are very approachable, hospitable. We don’t know much about each other but when we meet on Sundays it’s like family.

Helen- was the first person in the church. I met her as she was cleaning the chairs. She was a shy person and didn’t want to say much but from church cleaner to Reader to handling the tape recorder- she was it. Actions speak louder in her way of life.

Edith – I love the little community here. Whether we have a priest or not I love coming here. I volunteer and have been on the roster for a while.

Peter – I like the atmosphere of the place. I wish there were more people coming to church but other than that I love it here.
