Fr Bill sees an old school dream become a reality

A dream that began with the closure of a Maroubra Catholic school in 1987 was realised today with the opening and blessing of St Brigid’s Green, the final jewel in the crown of the revamped parish precinct.

The Archbishop of Sydney, Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP, blessed the aged care facility after it was opened by Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove on Friday.
