Special Mass at Melbourne Cemetery for deceased priests

Seminarians gather for prayer 

By Jackson Saunders 

The seminary community has gathered at the Melbourne General Cemetery for a special Mass to remember deceased priests. 

The Melbourne Archdiocese manages a chapel and crypt at the cemetery where deceased priests are buried. 

About 20 seminarians gathered to pray for the deceased priests, who are buried in the crypt beneath the chapel.

The Mass was celebrated by Corpus Christi College Rector, Fr Denis Stanley. Spiritual director, Fr Cao Nguyen, and Melbourne Ministry to Priests Director, Fr Thanh Vu, were the con-celebrants. 

This was one of three special apostolic activities for the seminary last Saturday. The apostolic activities formed part of the seminary's itinerary for the weekend to celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi.
