The Heritage Centre: An updatePrint
The excitement in the Congregation as the Sisters look forward to the opening of the Heritage Centre on June 6 by the Archbishop of Sydney, Anthony Fisher OP.
The major works have been done, and the final fit out is due to be finished around Easter.
It is possible now to see, in the bare bones of the building, the huge amount of work which has been carried out, to recreate a 1960s era convent into a modern, high tech centre.
Before and after in Rockwell Crescent, Potts Point. The old Convent becomes a modern Heritage Centre.
