Dear friend in Christ,


Welcome to our website! Thank you for looking us up. We at the Catholic parishes of Kingaroy and Nanango seek and strive every day to be the welcoming face of Jesus to all. So it gives us great joy to know that people are interested in checking our community out. Please feel free to join us anytime. We look forward to welcoming you. We are a group of imperfect sinful people who are constantly motivated and encouraged by the unconditional love and mercy of God as well as the awesome support of each other. This is what brings us together as a community of faithful people.

We are two parishes with six worshipping communities and two parish schools. The Kingaroy Parish comprises of the communities of Kingaroy, Kumbia and St Mary’s Catholic College. The Nanango Parish comprises of the Nanango, Cooyar, Blackbutt, Yarraman and St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School Communities. Our Parishes are part of the North Country Deanery in the Archdiocese of Brisbane (with the parishes of Gympie, Gayndah, Murgon, Childers, Maryborough and Hervey Bay).

We hope that you find our website helpful. Please be advised that it is only a guide and may not have all the information you need at this point in time. If that is the case, please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we will endeavour to help you.
