St Carthage’s Community Care, Lismore is celebrating the opening of “Jubilee House” at 10:00am on Monday 30th June at 3 Jubilee Avenue Goonellabah. Morning tea and an inspection of the new facility will follow.
 
Jubilee House will be officially blessed and opened by The Most Reverend Geoffrey Jarrett DD Bishop of Lismore.
 
Jubilee House was built with funds received from the State Government and a contribution from St Carthage’s Cathedral Parish. It is a place specifically designed and built for people with disabilities on the Far North Coast.
 
The house will provide much needed respite for carers while offering the person they care for opportunities to participate in recreational activities, gain independent living skills and access their chosen community.
 
Special guests attending the celebrations will include representatives from NSW Department of Families and Community Services – Ageing, Disability and Home Care, State and Commonwealth Government, Lismore City Council, Diocese of Lismore and St Carthage’s Community Care.
