Jubilee Catholic Parish supporting the needs of our community,
with a focus on education.

The Lavalla Centre is an integral part of the Jubilee Catholic Parish and has been administered by the Marist Brothers since Marist College Rosalie closed at the end of 2008, after 79 years of providing Marist education for boys. In keeping with the Marist charism, the Centre continues to focus on education, social justice and youth. A number of organisations use the Lavalla Centre facilities for educational purposes, enabling participants to reach their potential.

The Lavalla Centre is centrally located, with excellent public transport access (approximately 15 minute walk from Milton Train Station, and various nearby bus routes).

Due to the compact nature of the site, there is no on-site parking, however, nearby on-street parking is readily available.

Self-catering or outside catering, organised by the organisation hiring the facilities, is available. There are a number of Brisbane businesses that deliver to Paddington.
