If you combine the years of parishes within our Diocese who celebrated their anniversaries in 2021, you’d get around 650. That’s quite a milestone: 650 years of building, growth and vitality, of laying foundations, of joy, challenges and transitions, of new beginnings, of farewells, and many more besides.
To acknowledge the communities celebrating such significant milestones, Catholic Outlook shares this special anniversary video, which was presented to parishes across the Diocese at the end of 2021. We congratulate these parish communities and pray they will continue to be places of faith and community for people across the Diocese.
The parishes celebrating anniversaries are:
Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, St Marys
St Margaret Mary’s Parish, Merrylands
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, Wentworthville (1946)
