Part VI. Moving forward

One of the needs addressed by the parish in addressing our future was a parish centre for a place where the community could interact. Several fundraisers were held, the hall was built (now known as Jacob’s Hall) and was officially opened on 7 August 1988 by Archbishop Clancy.

Ruth Meagher takes on the job of Parish Secretary in February 1989, a role she still holds today.

Fr Jacobs continued as Parish Priest of both Peakhurst and Penshurst until he retired in August 2000. Fr John Crothers was appointed to the role.
