Melbourne welcome JCI with huge Mass at Cathedral

A few brave members of our team arose early this morning to take part in the Anzac Day Dawn Service at HMAS Cerberus. Immediately following we piled into the Chapel on base for Mass in the presence of the Cross and Icon, which was the final event in the Sale diocese. The community greatly appreciated the opportunity to pray with these powerful symbols on such a significant day - praying particularly for peace in our world.

After brekky with the military community, the JCI then continued on to the next diocese, Melbourne.

The first event on the Melbourne schedule was Mass in the Cathedral celebrated by Bishop Hart and concelebrated by other bishops and over fifty priests.
It was a truly spectacular celebration! The music was one of the many highlights, with a huge choir and orchestra producing breathtaking sounds as Guy Sebastian, Paulini, Garry Pinto & others led us in song.








A delegation of Sale youth processed the Cross & Icon into a jam-packed Cathedral where the official handover took place. Again, it was a moving time for all involved as one diocese sadly said farewell to these symbols that have touched many lives in their travels throughout the world.








Many thanks to the young people of Sale for making our time in your diocese so memorable, keep up the great work!!

Hello Team, I like the blog, but why is it always a week or so behind where the Cross and Icon are? I'd really like to know what's been happening in Melbourne this week - the biggest Catholic populated diocese in Australia!
