Some public worship and group activities in our Parish Churches, Halls, and Grounds have been put on hold by Government and Diocesan directives until further notice. However, with the approval of the Diocese, the Parish Council has reopened for in-Church Worship Services on Sundays at St. Andrew’s, Caloundra, and at the Mary Mackillop Centre, Beerwah, and on Wednesdays at St Thomas’, Mooloolah Valley.
Communion Church Services commence with a restricted number of attendees who must be mindful of good hygiene and social distancing practices for continued personal safety and the for the well being of others.
Under no circumstances attend church if you have any chronic illness or feeling ill. Please check first with your General Practitioner as to whether it would be safe at this time for you to stop self-isolating.

It is important that when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted we still have a financially viable Caloundra-Glasshouse Country Parish. To do that we need to pay our priest, our supporting clergy and administration staff as well as our usual bills, including rates, electricity, printing, internet, and more. Everything we do is funded by the giving of our parishioners, for which we thank you. Please continue to support us as you are able.
If your regular giving method has been affected we encourage you to continue your support by these flexible options:
