Parish Green Space

One constant feature of Mortlake since the 1890’s has been the practical and supportive Catholic community associated with St. Patrick’s Church. (‘An Enduring Flame’).

Over the past decade our community has developed its liturgical programs in support of the Catholic community and has renovated and built spaces in which liturgy and community is practised and enjoyed.

The Green Space is a multiuser space embracing both Church and School and will soon be available for St Patrick’s community as a place to play and pray. We acknowledge the support of Sydney Catholic Schools for the development of the Green Space.

Parishioners who were in the Parish approximately ten years ago are aware of the donation program that successfully saw the internal fit out of our Church from donations by Parishioners. We are proposing a similar program, on this occasion, for the ongoing maintenance of the Green Space and for support for future projects by way of recognition on an item forming part of the current build in the Green Space.

A list of the items available for whole or shared donations is below. If any parishioner would like to donate or share in donating any of the build items, please complete the Donation Form and return the completed form either by email to ‘stpatsmortlake@gmail.com’or deliver a hard copy to the Parish Office.

Parishioners will notice lighting has been installed to illuminate the designed area in the Green Space and that upgraded lighting has occurred in and around the Church. General donations will be gratefully received to support the cost and ongoing maintenance of this and other future works.

Parishioners will notice that items donated during the Church renovation have a recognition plaque. The style and size of the recognition plaque for items in the Green Space will be determined once the Donation Program has been finalised.
