Novena and Feast in Honour of 

Our Lady of Good Health


From Thursday  30th August to Saturday 8th September 

Holy Cross Church Caulfield South  

February 14, 2016

The Novena and Feast of Our Lady of Vailankanni has become one of the most grace filled events of the Combined Societies of Mary’s calendar.  Every year so many who attend report of the most wonderful favours having been granted to them through the praying of this Novena to Our Lady of Health Vailankanni


The favours granted are too many to list but have included some of the following.  The complete cure of cancer of a person near to the point of death, employment after seven years without a job,  being selected for a job out of several hundred applicants, the cures from numerous illnesses and maladies, and the reconciliation with estranged family members.  And why not?  She is our heavenly mother, and she is very powerful under this beautiful title of Our Lady of Health Vailankanni.

Moreover, the Novena will be blessed because it will be conducted in front of the Blessed Sacrament. No wonder it is such a powerful event:  to be storming Heaven with Our Blessed Mother in front of the most precious Body and Blood of Jesus truly present in the Holy Eucharist!  We should be excused for asking:  “Can you afford not to be part of these wonderful celebrations.”

We anticipate that it is going to be, indeed a most wonderful and 

most blessed novena.

Nine  Indian priests over nine  nights will lead the Novena, saying Mass and giving their personal Vailankanni experiences. Please especially mark  the Feast day Saturday, 8th September 7.00 pm on your calendar as “not to be missed,” for a wonderful celebration, procession, and Mass and extraordinary favours.   Come and let Our Lady bring healing into our lives. Holy Cross is conveniently situated off Hawthorn Road, with two tram routes close to the Church. There is a large carpark at the back of the Church off Murray Street.
