On behalf of Loreto Nedlands, I invite everyone to join us in celebrating 125 years of “Loreto in the West”. In August 1896, Mother Gonzaga and Sisters de Sales Field and Aloysius Macken departed Ballarat for Perth. They arrived in WA aboard the SS Orizaba on 6 September 1896 and on 15 February 1897, a new Day School was opened in Adelaide Terrace with only two pupils.
An invitation to join us to celebrate this milestone year for Loreto in Western Australia is included in today’s newsletter. The August celebrations will begin with a Mass in the Loreto Performing Arts Centre, followed by morning tea in the Mary Ward courtyard. A special adults-only event will be held the following night and will include a unique visual presentation. Please scan the QR code to register your attendance at these events. We look forward to celebrating with you.
