BG PA KH Croydon Communion

This has been a sad week as we remembered Peter Wood and Frank Perry.

But, it began with joy, the Golden Jubilee celebrations of four confreres. It is about to end with more joy, Khoi’s ordination.

It seemed a good idea to post some memento photos of the Jubilee celebration. The original news was posted on this site on Monday, September 3rd.

The celebration was at the former MSC scholasticate at Croydon, Victoria

The monastery is now Croydon's Sacred Heart Parish. The Mass was celebrated in the section of the parish church, the extension of the former chapel out into the courtyard.

The Jubilarians, 200 years of MSC priestly ministry between them: Brian Gallagher, Pat Austin, Keith Humphries. Illness prevented Frank Andersen's being there.
