St Kevin’s Catholic Parish

Ms GRALEY — St Kevin’s Catholic Parish in Hampton Park celebrated its silver jubilee at the end of last month. Over 25 years the St Kevin’s parish has grown to meet the demands of our ever-growing and diverse community.

Today the parish is made up of 2600 families from across Hampton Park, Lynbrook and Lyndhurst, many of whom were born overseas.

 The parish’s patron saint, St Kevin, was renowned for his patience. It is said that a bird once laid an egg in the palm of his hand. St Kevin, not wanting to harm the egg, remained motionless until the egg hatched.

The St Kevin’s community opens its arms generously to all. It was a joyous celebration of a church that has enriched our local community and will no doubt continue to do so for many years.
