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.

Coming Events


All Readers, Communion Ministers, Hospitality Ministers, Sacristans, Ministry of Consolation, Ministers to the Sick, all our Groups Leaders and all other volunteers of the Parish MUST attend a Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults Workshop. Our Parish will hold our workshop on Wednesday 29th August in the John Paul Centre form 12pm to 2pm. A light lunch will be provided before the training. Maryborough Parish will hold their workshop in the evening of the 29th August for anyone who can't attend our Training Session.

Please Register with the Parish Office as soon as possible. This will be the only Safeguarding workshop available to us for 2018 so it is very important you attend. Thank you
