The Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish, Epsom, along with the OLSH School and the Sisters of Mercy will be celebrating our centenary celebration due to take place in September 2021. We pause with gratitude to God for his many blessings on our parish, and are grateful to our parishioners, teachers, sisters, parents and students, both past and present for their many efforts and dedication in serving our parish and the school community.
Our parish has been blessed to be served by many priests over the years, some of whom will be joining our celebration. Over the years thousands of faithful parishioners have chosen to make us their church home for a time and we’d like to invite you all to celebrate this momentous occasion with us. Over the weekend in September 2021 we will be hosting various events including a gala dinner and dance and we hope you can make it for one or all of the events below.
While we realize many people may have moved on to other parishes, or even moved away from the area, we would love to have you return to be with us! Be sure to mark your calendar now for this great weekend!
Sisters of Mercy Centennial Celebration.
On Tuesday 3 May 1921, the Sisters of Mercy moved into the house at 104 The Drive, Epsom where they immediately began a day school and boarding school, and became the Mass centre for the local area. This was the beginnings of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish and School Community in Epsom Auckland.
As part of parish centennial celebrations, the Sisters of Mercy invite parishioners, students and parents to join with them after 10 am Mass on Sunday 2 May 2021, as we look back over the past 100 years.
This is an opportunity to come and see Cecilia Maher House and facilities, wander through the grounds, view displays and enjoy light refreshments. Come and celebrate a century of Mercy women and their helpers who have served in the parish.
Sunday 2 May 2021 at 104 The Drive Epsom between 10.30am -1.30pm
