Opening Night

Just on 200 people came along to the opening night and what a treat they were in for. Watch the photostory below.

Sea Star Rock

Our Lady of La Vang was visited by four underwater sea creatures who sang and danced until we were all swimming to the surface for air! There was a lot of dancing, singing, moving and laughing. 

Farewell Speech

Official opening and blessing, October 27th, 2013


On October 27th the community gathered to celebrate the opening of Our Lady of La Vang. Archbishop Philip Wilson opened and blessed the facilities, he was joined by the Lt Governor of South Australia, Mr Hieu Van Le. Families and visitors sat on the lawn and enjoyed a picnic lunch. They were entertained by clowns, musicians, bubble blowing and face painting. The Vietnamese Choir from St Margaret Mary's Croydon joined us for the day, they sang beautifully in the liturgy. Kavisha Mazzella sang the school song 'Our Lady of La Vang Forest' with the students. Mr Hieu Van Le shared his story of being a boat person. He faced all sorts of unimaginable cruelty as a refugee making his way with others to Australia. We were all deeply touched by the generosity and kindness of his spirit in sharing his story with us. Thank you to all who made this day so wonderful!

Why we value what we do.
