Fifty Years since the closure of St. Patrick's College East Melbourne. 24/11/18.
St Patrick’s Cathedral Melbourne. 10:00 am Mass.

In Darwin there is a museum that is a tribute to the terrible disaster that
Cyclone Tracy caused to Darwin in 1974. Once I visited the museum and the
guide who was a survivor of that terrible disaster shared the experience of the
cyclone. He told us how the house began to rock, shake then to break up in
sections. He described sheltering his young family in the bathroom. He told us
that his youngest son pleaded that they should pray. He explained that he was
not a religious man and so invited his son to begin. The young boy said the only
prayer he ever heard. He said… Dear God, for what we are about to receive
make us truly thankful!
