Blessing of the Bell

08 October 2015 by

Tuesday 6 September 2015 marked a significant milestone in the development of our Chapel of St. Mary of the Cross. After months of planning and preparation the Chapel bell arrived, was blessed and installed.

The bell has been gifted to us by the Parish of St. Andrews.
Before the bell was hung it was blessed by all three of our school chaplains: Fr. Frank, Fr. Benneth and Fr. Shymon. In line with church tradition Fr. Frank named the bell St. Joseph. He selected this name in honour of the connection St. Joseph has with the Werribee area and in particular his connection to St. Mary of the Cross MacKillop.

Our bell, St. Joseph is an important feature of the Chapel and will be rung to signify a call to prayer and Eucharist and in time of celebration.
