On Sunday 20th October, St Bridget’s Primary School in Greythorn celebrated their 60th Anniversary. The celebrations were commemorated with a Mass led by Bishop Terry Curtin and Parish Priest Father Mark Reynolds, followed by morning tea and a walk down memory lane of 60 years of school memorabilia.
At the beginning of Mass an emotional Bishop Curtin expressed to the congregation how special the Parish and School of St Bridget’s is to him as he was Parish Priest there for 7 years from 2008 to 2014.

During his time as Parish Priest, Bishop Curtin developed a truly wonderful rapport with the school children of St Bridget’s. As part of his homily on the day, he reminisced of the times when he would conduct Mass at St Bridget’s for the school children and the range of entertaining answers he would receive from them regarding the message from the Gospel of the day.
