Parramatta Diocese Continues to Expand Education Opportunities and new schools

Parramatta Diocese Continues to Expand Education Opportunities and new schools
St Patrick's Quarter providing Catholic pastoral outreach, education and community support in the heart of Parramatta.

With the population of Parramatta projected to grow exponentially in the next 10 years, the Diocese of Parramatta is planning on revitalising the St Patrick's Cathedral precinct. A multi-stage project known as St Patrick's Quarter is expected to provide more opportunities for Catholic services including pastoral outreach, education, and community support within the Diocese of Parramatta. St Patrick's Quarter will revitalise and renew the northern end of the Parramatta CBD and ensure the Catholic Church remains able to using its presence in that area to do more and be more for the local community.

St Patrick's Quarter has three main elements:

1) A new 'pre-school to post school' known as St Patrick's Cathedral College,

2) A new Church office administration building and

3) A modest commercial/residential hub.

The planning process will focus on the needs of the community and will reflect the principles of collaboration and sustainability. Priority will also be given to ensuring there is sufficient recreational space for students. The Church is also committed to working constructively with Parramatta Council on a robust and viable traffic management plan.

The idea of a revitalised Cathedral precinct has been under consideration for some time and more detailed planning will now commence. Pending regulatory approvals, St Patrick's Cathedral College is scheduled to open in 2020 with the other components of St Patrick's Quarter to follow soon after.

St Patrick's Quarter is working under the auspices of the Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Vincent Long OFM Conv.
