Links with the Church

We are very proud of our strong links with both St Bonaventure's Church and the Sacred Heart church in Westbury-on-Trym.

A short history of St Bon's
In 1889 the land for St. Bonaventure’s Church and School was purchased by Franciscan Father Thaddeus Hermans for £2,300. It was decided that the school would be built before the Church at a cost of £998 and work began in 1890 with the original school building opening later that year.

The Foundation stone for the building of the Church was not laid until 1900 on the day of the Feast of St. Bonaventure, a day which both the Church and school still celebrate.

Below are links to the Churches' websites - please note in particular that both Churches create regular newsletters which you can sign up to on their websites.
