St Gregory’s Parish History
We are in the preparation stages of producing a St Gregory’s Parish history (coffee table book). We are looking for someone who has qualifications/ experience in designing, editing, text, photography. Is this something that you can help us with or if you know of someone who is willing to donate their time to get this going. We are looking for information and most importantly photos or artists impression of St John Vianney church in Queanbeyan. It was located near Hotel Queanbeyan in Uriarra Road.
Please let the parish office know if you can help.
The NSW Government has eased the following - venues including places of worship, one person per 2 square metres will apply, therefore the maximum numbers allowed in our church will be 200. You will not be required to book on line for weekend masses. However, when you do attend church, you will still be required to provide your name and contact details when you enter the church. Please note that the Sunday morning 9 am mass is our most attended mass, therefore please arrive early to avoid disappointment. You can also register your attendance, by scanning the QR app when you enter the church.
If you haven't uploaded the QR app on your mobile phone, here is the link:

The home of our faith is the Church, the place we come and pray, where we celebrate Mass, Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals, where we celebrate Jesus’ birthday and his resurrection. It is also the front door to our faith community that leads and invites people to come and explore, or where they can come and join in whatever gives them life.
The church is a constantly growing structure of believers who are united in the mission of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. To do this effectively we reach out to those in our community who are able to support us financially.
