Celebration in Honour of the Immaculate Conception
First Class Relic of St Catherine Labourne
Holy Cross Church Caulfield
Sunday 8th December
What a beautiful way to celebrate and end a year that has been filled with wonderful graces and blessings.
It will be a beautiful end of year celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception with Bishop Peter Elliott.
On this day let us unite ourselves with all the Angels and Saints who rejoice and praise God for the Immaculate Conception 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 Labouré
Comes to Melbourne
St Catherine Labouré was chosen by God in 1830 for the reception of a special and powerful grace. 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 Most Rev. Bishop Peter Elliott will be celebrating Holy Mass on this occasion. A free Miraculous Medal will be available for all who attend, and there will be present on the day only, medals from the Chapel of the Visitation in Paris for sale.
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.
