A new Community at Epping, Victoria, Australia
In January 2013 a new FCJ community group was initiated in Epping North, Victoria, Australia. This small Australian town is not too far from Benalla which has had an FCJ presence for well over a century and where FCJ College is very well known.
The sisters had been in their new home for only a few weeks when bushfires in the immediate vicinity necessitated an evacuation of the area. So like most others, the sisters moved out.
Once they had returned Fr Maurie Cooney, the parish priest, blessed the house and established that all was in order for reservation of the Blessed Sacrament.
(Most FCJ communities have a chapel and reservation of the Blessed Sacrament.)
We wish you well in Epping North!
