Next year marks 150 years since the arrival of a small band of Christian Brothers to Melbourne in 1868. The Oceania Christian Brothers are hosting a gathering in Melbourne to celebrate this event in early May (3-5 May).
This will be an opportunity for 'Gathering the Dreamers: From Edmund, to Ambrose to Us', remembering, celebrating and visioning’. It is open to those who are inspired by and living the mission of the Edmund Rice Charism.
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the traditional owners and custodians of the land of our schools. We are inspired and nurtured by their wisdom, spirituality and experience. We commit ourselves to actively work alongside them for reconciliation and justice. We pay our respects to the Elders; past, present and future. As we take our next step we remember the first footsteps taken on this sacred land.
