Catholic Education in the tradition of St Marcellin Champagnat

Opening at Red Bend Catholic College, Forbes

A warm and sunny autumn afternoon in a quite verdant Forbes provided a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony to mark the blessing and opening of new facilities at Red Bend Catholic College on 7 April.  A trade training centre, new TAS facilities, a hospitality centre, and a refurbished College Chapel were blessed by the Apostolic Administrator of Willcannia-Forbes (Bishop Michael Kennedy from Armidale) and local Federal Member, the Hon. John Cobb.  Other speakers included the present and former Principals, Brothers Michael Flanagan and John Hilet, and MSA National Director, Brother Michael Green.
