I have played the organ in this church for several special events. I had amazing acoustics without the need for amplification. The shape of the church and the position of the choir loft allow any singers to fill the church with sound.

One of the iconic catholic churches in Brisbane, this one is situated on top of Red Hill just to the North West of the City. Subsequently the view over the City is pretty good. New Years Eve fireworks can been seen from here too and lacks the crowds in Southbank.
