Queensland Community

St TeresaThe State of Queensland is known also as the Sunshine State. Here the State is filled with the world’s beautiful beaches, the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise and the Barrier Reef etc. The total population of the State is over 4 millions.

Brisbane is the Capital of Queensland. In the last 20 years, great changes have taken place in the Capital: population has climbed from half a million to over 2 millions; the city has been transformed from former farmlands to modern city especially in the south-east part of the State.

In year 2009 both the State and the Archdiocese of Brisbane celebrated their 150th Anniversary .

community prayerThe second mission of the Region of Australia began in December 1989. Sister Lucie Ko, Sr Teresa Lau and Sr Nancy Wong were the first three Sisters assigned to this Mission from Hong Kong. With the support and help from the Archdiocese of Brisbane, the Sisters soon established a Residential Aged home for the Australian and ethnic aged population. Now the St Paul de Chartres Residential Aged Care offered 46 Independent Living Units to the self care retirees and 98 residents needing low and high care.

The Community of Sisters is located adjacent to the Residential Aged Care. There are 10 Sisters in the Community. Two young professed Sisters are studying nursing and one studying office administration. These young Sisters also work in residential aged care home. Sisters work in the residential aged care home as Director, Finance. Three Sisters are semi-retired yet they still serve the community in the pastoral care of the residents. Our most senior Sister has recently moved to live in the Hostel section of the residential aged care. One Sister from Korea is studying English.

Brisbane Srs Care

Apart from serving the Aged Care Residents, Sisters also help in the Brisbane Chinese Community with teaching catechism, and youth ministry and organising Bible Sharing groups etc.
