ASIA-OCEANIARemembering Oblate heroes
St. Eugene College is a Preschool to Grade 12 school in the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Australia. The College is conducted by the Parish of St. Eugene de Mazenod, Burpengary, which is under the pastoral care of the Oblates.
On Saturday, 20 March, three new buildings were blessed and officially opened at the College. Each building bears the name of an Oblate hero: the Administration building is named after Fr. Henri TEMPIER; the Senior building is named after Blessed Josef CEBULA and the multipurpose hall is named Rodrigo Hall (after the martyred Sri Lankan Oblate Fr. Michael RODRIGO).
The State Government of Queensland and the Commonwealth Government of Australia contributed over $10 million to the new educational facilities at St. Eugene’s. Present at the opening was Senator Furner of the Commonwealth Government and Mr Ryan of the State Government and a parishioner of St. Eugene parish.
