Friday, September 15, 2023 Parramatta Marist Westmead
The Education Mass gathered students of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta to join with Principals, Religious Education Coordinators and Diocesan Priests to celebrate their role in the mission of the Church.
The most special day on the Parra Marist calendar was celebrated with a beautiful mass in the morning, the announcement of the prestigious Champagnat Award winners, followed by an afternoon of fun rides, games and activities at school.
Beginning teachers, new school principals and leaders gathered for a moving celebration at St Patrick’s Cathedral Parramatta as Bishop Vincent Long and Parish Priests blessed and welcomed Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese staff to their new roles.
We had such a wonderful night in October 2022 finally celebrating 200 years of continuous Catholic education at Parramatta Marist. Though officially turning 200 in 2020, the wait to celebrate was definitely worth it!
