  • Loved attending weekday evening Mass here especially when Fr Rego was celebrating as he enunciates each word slowly and reverently, with time for reflection. Located conveniently in the heart of the city, a quick dash from Central Station. Every Friday Verbum Dei holds the School of the Word Bible study after 5:10-5:40pm Mass. Great place for fellowship.
  • The oldest surviving church building in Brisbane, designed by the famed architect Pugin. Daily weekday evening Masses are celebrated here from 5:10 - 5:40 p.m. It is a place of quiet prayer in the midst of the hubbub of the city.
