Commemorating 100 Years

"This year we celebrate 100 years since the first German SVD missionaries began our SVD mission in Epping, NSW. It started as a Mission Procure and recuperation house for PNG missionaries when they bought a piece of land in Epping in 1920, with the help of the local diocesan parish priest, Fr Moore, on September 8th, the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady.

This booklet affirms that signing up for life does not make any of us immune to the pain and sadness of serving a broken world loved by God. God chooses ordinary peoples to serve his mission and the qualification is simple, availability and faith in His providence."
