New Parish Centre constructed - November 2007

The construction of the new Parish Centre started in Spring of this year, and was completed in late July.  This new Centre now provides the perfect venue for many organisations to either meet, hold their events, provide a larger area for Children’s Liturgy, and also be used for serving refreshments after Mass.

The Centre is built on the lawn side of the church, and has involved alterations to the church, including providing an new area for the piety stall and enclosing the front porch, which has now greatly enhanced the overall appearance of the church.

The centre is now fully operational. It was officially opened and blessed by the Archbishop on Sunday November 25th.  The Sacrament of Confirmation was administered at the Preceding Mass, which commenced at 10.00 a.m.  A parish buffet followed the event.
Below are some photographs of the new centre, and some of the facilities.
