MINISTERING TO CATHOLIC RESIDENTS AT RANGEVIEW
Some years ago, then Parish Priest of Our Lady’s Fr. Steve Bohan with Sr. Mary Griffiths, began organising monthly Masses at Rangeview Nursing Home. These Masses continue to this day, with Fr. Novi or Fr. Mike celebrating Mass there each 1st. Wednesday of the month, assisted by a few members of Our Lady’s Parish. Additionally, an extraordinary minister from Our Lady’s takes communion to Catholic residents at Rangeview each Sunday. Currently there are five residents that they visit.
One of the residents is Anita Curran who, by the way, grew up on a hop farm in Cheshunt and attended St Joseph’s Convent in Wangaratta. Anita was an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist for 15 years, to the sick and also residents of nursing homes. To this day, Anita still involves herself in the church with donations of altar linens. Thank you Anita for your dedication.
Though we have a small number of Catholic residents at Rangeview, it is still a pleasure for us to continue this ministry, for it gives joy to these residents every time we remember them through the celebration of the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
