Members of the school community at Our Lady of Mercy College Parramatta welcomed Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv on 2 November 2016. Bishop Vincent joined staff for morning tea in the convent garden then toured the college with the Principal, Stephen Walsh.
In May this year, Pope Francis appointed Bishop Vincent the fourth Bishop of Parramatta. Stephen Walsh said the school community at OLMC was very much looking forward to working with Bishop Vincent in a joint commitment to serving the Catholic community of Western Sydney.
OLMC Parramatta is a Catholic independent girls’ school established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1889.
On 14 November 2016, the college is conducting an Open Morning Tour. For more information click here.
