Salvado Feast Day, St Helena’s Parish Building Project, Open Morning and Enrolments 2023 and 2024


This week was the celebration of Salvado House. On the 16th of February 1846, a 32-year-old Benedictine Spanish Monk by the name of Rosendo Salvado, was bid farewell by the Catholic community of Perth, and began his own journey into the unknown – perhaps feeling the same way some of you may be feeling at this very moment.  With only few supplies and very little knowledge of the Australian continent, its people, their languages or their customs, Salvado could only put his absolute faith in God.   173 years later, New Norcia, Australia’s only Monastic town, stands as a living and working monument to Salvado’s legacy and willingness to submit to God’s will.  A man of humility, persistence, of compassion and of course, great faith; his life story provides us with inspiration and example as to how to live out Christ’s Gospel message.  Salvado’s story invites us to put our anxieties aside and put our faith in God.  

Thank you to Salvado House Representative’s – Claire Merry and Deanna Russo, Or House Tutor group teachers and Deputy of Faith – Ben Bull, for being so creative in ensuring the day was engaging for the students during COVID restrictions.  Thank you to senior student, house Captain Jessica Vincent and our students for their positive participation.
