On Saturday 10 September, thousands of people in Sydney will enter the gates of Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview for the return of the Jesuit Mission Bazaar.

The Jesuit Mission Bazaar has been held at Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview since 1952, raising funds to support the many educational and social outreach programs of Jesuit Mission overseas.

“For over 70 years this wonderful tradition of fundraising has supported marginalised communities around the world. I am delighted to be able to welcome you all back again to this year’s Bazaar,” said Helen Forde, CEO of Jesuit Mission.

After an absence of two years due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Bazaar will be back in full swing with rides, amusements and games for children of all ages as well as music, a huge array of food outlets stalls, plants, a second-hand book stall, cakes and confectionery, raffles and lots more.

All proceeds from the day go directly towards supporting at-risk communities across over 14 countries in Asia and Africa, including Cambodia, Timor-Leste, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Malawi and more.

“Our thanks go out to Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview for generously hosting, to all the stall holders for their tireless efforts, to our friends from St Aloysius’ College, Kinkcoppal-Rose Bay and Loreto Kirribilli, parishes, members of the Jesuit community and our wonderful supporters,” said Maree Meagher, Jesuit Mission Bazaar Committee Chair.

Your attendance at the Bazaar will help fund life-changing teaching and education programs; provide essential services to refugees displaced by conflict; provide healthcare and livelihood training to vulnerable communities and provide emergency relief to those most affected by disasters.

You are invited to the Jesuit Mission Bazaar on Saturday 10 September at Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview.

When: 9:00am – 5:00pm Saturday 10 September 2022
Where: Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview, Tambourine Bay Rd, Lane Cove NSW 2066
