History and Architecture:

The Sacred Heart Croydon Monastery was officially opened on Monastery Hill by Archbishop Mannix in April 1939 - a new seminary for the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. The complex featured a chapel, library, cloisters, classrooms, refectory, kitchens and domestic offices. From its very origins, Monastery Hill has been a place where the spiritual life could be nurtured and developed.

In 2000, the original chapel was extended and the new Sacred Heart Parish church was built to accommodate the growing number of parishioners with a 520-plus overflow capacity.
