At the beginning of July 2017 the Parish Office for Singleton and Branxton Catholic Parishes moved to the St Patrick’s Commercial Centre in Cambridge Street, Singleton. This property was originally St Francis Xavier’s Catholic Primary School and then was redeveloped into office units as the St Patrick’s Commercial Centre. The Centre enjoyed busy tenancies until the downturn in the mining industry four years ago. Since then some of the offices have been vacant.
The new space is well equipped with an office for Frs George Mullappallil and Peter Street, a large meeting room for parish committees and training and desk space for a volunteer.
CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning has moved in next door to the parish office and Bishop Bill officially opened and blessed the two offices on 22 October.
