Mass, music and a marvelous time at Corpus Christi Aged Care

By Jackson Saunders 

Fr Ed Moloney and a group of Corpus Christi College seminarians visited Corpus Christi Aged Care in Clayton on Saturday, June 2. 

The occasion provided an opportunity to celebrate the feast for both the aged care facility and the seminary. Both organisations are named after Corpus Christi, which recognises our call to be part of the Body of Christ on earth.

Fr Ed celebrated Mass with residents, while students led the music ministry throughout the Mass. 

Afterwards a small concert took place with popular songs such as the 'Hokey Pokey.'

Another highlight of the day was the opportunity to meet with the Cluny Sisters who live at Clayton. 

The Cluny Sisters have a long connection with the seminary and cooked for the students at the seminary for many years. The current dining room at our Carlton seminary is named "Cluny" in honour of the Cluny Sisters. 

Fr Ed Moloney in particular was delighted to be able to catch up with the Sisters, including Sr Eileen Sheahy, who was one of the Sisters during his time at the seminary.   

Corpus Christi Seminary thanks Corpus Christi Aged Care for their warm welcome. Special thanks is to be given to Pastoral Worker, Imeleta Asalemo-Lemalu, who coordinated the visit.
