The Banners of the Mothers’ Union Branches and Caritas Groups, Diocese of Melbourne.
The late Doug Myers completed an archival copy of ‘The Banners of the Mothers’ Union Branches and Caritas Groups, Diocese of Melbourne’ using wonderful computer skills.
The ‘Book’ contains pictures of banners from 89 groups, both active and in recess, and includes more than 124 banner photos.
Doug Myers captured the culture of our banners beautifully and this is magnificent contribution to maintaining the MU history of the Diocese.

Stoles for Nungalinya College Graduates
At a meeting where the Archbishop’s wife, Joy spoke to MU members, she mentioned the needs of the pre-ordained graduates from Nungalinya College.
Within two weeks, St Paul’s Canterbury Caritas had made 20 beautiful embroidered stoles. The stoles were blessed in the presence of the Archbishop and Mrs Freier.
What is remarkable though is that it was a MU event that initiated the organizing of this project. Caritas members did this beautiful work and it was Mary Sumner Day that the Stoles were blessed.
Who could doubt that God had a hand in all this?
