Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a Catholic faith community in Coorparoo, in the Archdiocese of Brisbane. The parish has been in the care of the Carmelite Friars since 1937.
We farewell Father Fausto Tilman o.carm this weekend as he will be leaving us on early Sunday morning the 27th August. He will return to Timor Leste where he will begin his ministry in Formation of our Carmelite students at Hera. We thank him for his cheerful presence while here at Coorparoo and wish him every blessing for the future.
THANK YOU from the Carmelites Fundraising Team
It seems that the children from Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in Coorparoo have been very busy this last month focusing on their annual Mission Day and using that day to raise funds for the
children of Zumalai. The grade six students used their time to learn about Catholic Social Teaching and Mission within their Religious Education Curriculum and added an element of fun to their learning by ending with activities which were designed and lead by them and run on annual Mission Day. The day began with a Mass celebrated by Fr Wayne Stanhope for the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mt Carmel and then all students prep to year six were involved in the Mission Day activities from 11am – 1pm. Jenna Webb the school’s religious education teacher said ‘we are very proud to be able to donate a total of $3,688.80 to Zumalai from this event.’
