The Angels rejoiced when Our Lady was conceived in the womb of Her Mother Saint Anne. 

If the heaven’s rejoice how delighted   we should be and what a sense of wonder, joy, and gratitude we should have on this great occasion. Saint Anne and Saint Joaquim  were truly holy people chosen by God to be the parents of Our Lady. 

    Our Lady is the glory of God, the most splendid work of His creation.  She gives more honour to the Holy Trinity, and is more powerful in heaven than all the other saints and angels put together.  If we were to think of all the great and good works of holy men and women throughout  the ages they pale in comparison to what God has done, and continues to do through Mary. 

    Let us not miss out!  When we honour Our Lady, our hearts expand to allow God to enter.  Our Lady is so powerful in heaven.  So why not come and enjoy some of those huge graces God gives to those who honour His Mother.  Our Lady is so wonderful - come on this special day and receive Her aid.

First Class Relic of St Catherine Laboure Comes to Melbourne

St Catherine Laboure was chosen by God in 1830 for the reception of a special and powerful grace. 

 

In the first apparition St Catherine's hands rested on Our Lady's Lap.  What a wonderful and motherly image!  We cannot think of another apparition in which Our Lady showed such loving intimacy with a visionary or saint.   And to think that we are going to have a piece of that incorrupt flesh of this great saint who actually touched Our Blessed Mother whilst here on earth!  What a great grace and blessing.

 

Our Lady appeared to her and requested a medal be made, which soon became known as the “Miraculous Medal” because of all the miracles and favours that were granted through it.  The associated prayer is  very well known:  “ O Mary conceived without sin Pray for us who have recourse to Thee.”  We are particularly blessed to have this first class relic of this great Saint present for the Immaculate Conception Feast.

The relic will be available for your personal veneration, so that you can ask this great saint to intercede for you  in your needs, praying for our country and families

We are very pleased to announce that Bishop Peter Elliott will be celebrating Holy Mass on this occasion. A free Miraculous Medal will be available for all  who attend.    

An end of year afternoon tea will be held on the lawns following Holy Mass. The ladies are encouraged to bring a plate to share, and the gentlemen something to drink.  Please join us for this celebration.
