The Good Shepherd Parish of Plumpton is a vibrant Catholic parish with over 3000 Catholic parishioners. It is proud to be one of the most multicultural parishes in the Parramatta diocese.
The history of The Good Shepherd Parish
The Good Shepherd Parish was established back in 1970. A new church was blessed by the Bishop Bede in 1988 and still stands tall today. The community has grown and expanded over this time. Now, each Sunday Mass is delivered in Vietnamese to cater to the needs of our community. Other nationalities of people, including Maltese and Filipino, has enriched our parish greatly, all bonded by the same love and faith.
Teaching the way of The Good Shepherd
Teaching the word of the Lord has of course always been important to the parish. The Good Shepherd Primary School was established in 1979 and is still in operation today. In 1991, the parish was again blessed by the establishment of the St Francis Primary School, Glendenning. This was soon followed by Clare High School, Hassall Grove, founded in 1994
