The Lavalla Centre, home to the Marist Ministries Office, was officially opened and blessed in early 2009. The Centre is situated at 58 Fernberg Road, on the site of the former Marist College, Rosalie, which provided Catholic education to boys in the Marist tradition for eighty years until its closure in 2008.
In keeping with the Marist charism, the Centre is committed to supporting ministries which focus on education, social justice and youth. It seeks to respond to the challenges associated with the needs of a diverse society in the spirit of Mary and St Marcellin Champagnat. In support of this, the Centre provides space for professional development programmes, leadership training and reflection days.
More widely, the Centre is available to the Catholic and general community as a well-equipped venue for training and conference needs. Whether it is a short meeting for a dozen or a weekend conference for up to 150 people, the Lavalla Centre can meet your needs.
