Welcome to the Hervey Bay Catholic Parish

Our Parish includes two churches: St Joseph's Pialba, Hervey Bay and St Patrick's Howard. We are proud of our reputation as a vibrant and welcoming community, and trust that you will quickly feel comfortable and at home here.

We hope that this website will be useful to you, providing information about our parish and our various ministries and activities.


In the month of October, we pray the Rosary in our Parish 30 minutes before each Mass. Please join the Rosary and let us journey to God with Mary.
