On Sunday 18th May the Priest’s Support and Education Fund launched its annual appeal at Corpus Christi College, the Regional Seminary for Victoria and Tasmania. The Fund was established in 1998 by the Knights of the Southern Cross and raises funds for the ongoing education of seminarians and clergy for the dioceses of Victoria and Tasmania as well as the Military Ordinariate.
Every year on Palm Sunday the Church celebrates World Youth Day in the local dioceses. One of the ways that this is celebrated in the Archdiocese of Melbourne is the Evangelium Palm Sunday Church pilgrimage to four churches in the city area.
Holy Week brings a significant change of pace at the Seminary. The students return to their own dioceses leaving only the Melbourne seminarians at Corpus Christi. Palm Sunday is spent serving Mass at the Cathedral and this year some of the students joined the Evangelium church Pilgrimage as it made its way around the churches in the Melbourne area.
