School Community - Our Lady Help of Christians Parish

Our Lady Help of Christians Parish, Narre Warren was formed on 16 February, 1980. At that time Narre Warren was a small town surrounded by farmland. The parish community began to grow under the leadership of Fr John Readman, its first parish priest. Today, it is one of Australia’s largest and most diverse Catholic parishes.
