Bishop Mark Edwards OMI (former Mazenod student) officially blessed the O’Rourke Complex which included a new Library and Years 11 and 12 areas.
The refurbished College Chapel was blessed and re-opened by the the Most Rev Denis Hart, Archbishop of Melbourne.
The new Mazenod College Chapel was Blessed and Opened. It replaced the old chapel which, since 1978, had been located near the entrance of the first floor of the administrative building.
In mid 1977, construction began on a new classroom, resource and teaching area on the ground floor and new administration offices, interview rooms, printing office and chapel on the first floor. A walk way between the new wing and the Library was also constructed. Staff moved into their new offices in early 1978.
The first Mazenod College Chapel was set up in a classroom just inside the entrance to the main building. The carved wooden crucifix in the Chapel was presented to the college by the Iona Passion Play Committee in Brisbane.
