Melbourne Salesians celebrated Australia Day

Australia DayOn Monday, 27th January, a number of Salesian Brothers, Sisters and Priests from Melbourne gathered at St. Margaret Mary’s parish presbytery in North Brunswick to celebrate Australia Day as a family.

It was a joyful gathering with plenty of food and drinks hosted by the parish priest, Fr. Anthony Nguyen SDB and Sr Marguerite Nguyen FMA.

The gathering began with a prayer service praying for the country, people past and present, and for a prosperous future. This prayer service was led by Fr Michael Ledda, and the concluding blessing given by a retired bishop and a friend of the Salesians, Bishop Hilton Deakin.

In a typical Australian style, Br David O’Brien entertained the gathering with many Australian songs throughout the afternoon.

Australia is celebrated on 26th January each year.
