75th Anniversary Fund Raiser

Building a future

In October 2022 we celebrated our 75th anniversary. Thanks to your generosity, a number of renovation projects have been completed over the last 3 years leading up to this event. This is part of an ongoing effort to preserve a legacy for future generations. In the wake of Covid-19, our primary goal for 2022 has been to build faith through catechesis and ensure a thriving, vibrant community for our children. 

The parish of St Bernadette is served by the fathers and brother of the Oratory. The parish and the Oratory (which share the same premises) have a close relationship.
