Residents at St Patrick's Green recently received a special visit from the Archbishop of Sydney Anthony Fisher OP earlier this month.
The visit was particularly special for residents who are no longer able to attend church services for health reasons.
The Archbishop conducted a Holy Mass in the village’s theatrette and then ended with a blessing of the new senior’s community in Kogarah.
Retirement resident Pauline said, "the Archbishop is such a kind man, he really takes the time to talk to everyone and make us feel special. It’s so great to have him here and I feel good about him having blessed our home,” she said.
Greengate CEO, Ralph Warburton, said he was honoured to have the Archbishop visit Greengate’s third seniors’ community.
“We’re delighted to be hosting this event just over a year since this wonderful village was commissioned on Catholic land. St Patrick’s Green is such a warm, safe and vibrant community, and we are proud to be the home of 167 of Australia’s finest people,” he said.
Whilst Greengate is an independent company, each of their three villages have strong ties to the Catholic communities in both Sydney and Brisbane.
St Patrick’s Green has a large Catholic cohort, which Greengate honoured when naming the village after the neighbouring St Patrick’s Church.
St Patrick’s Green welcomes people of all backgrounds and faiths, and encourages seniors from the Kogarah area to drop by and see the village first-hand. St Patrick’s Green has an Open House every Monday from 10am-12pm at 40 Chapel Street, Kogarah.
