Vocations focus as Cross continues through Melbourne

Today’s events began with the Central Parish Cluster Event, held at St Patrick’s Cathedral, after which the Cross & Icon were taken to the Maronite community for a gathering and liturgy.

Later in the day the Cross & Icon travelled to be with the seminarians at Corpus Christi College for Vespers, before going to the Carmelite Monastery at Kew for a Vocational Awareness Event. The time spent around the Cross & Icon in this most prayerful and beautiful location was really special for the young people who gathered to be a part of it. It was a privilege to hear from two young religious about how they came to consecrated life, and to share in the veneration of the Cross & Icon with the crowd that overflowed out of the chapel.

It is quite remarkable the impact that the Cross & Icon continue to have on the communities they are visiting – and there is plenty more for the Archdiocese of Melbourne instore.
