Brother Francis Paulinus Hannigan

Br Francis Paulinus Hannigan, a member of the Abbotsford (Good Shepherd Hostel) Community, died around 1am on Saturday, 28 March at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Paul suffered a fall mid-week whilst out for dinner and had fractured his spine. He had a successful operation to fuse his spine but unfortunately succumbed to a heart attack a few days later.

At this stage the funeral is unlikely to be held this week. The details will be forwarded as soon as they become available.

In Loving Memory


Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

“Go into the village opposite, and on entering it you will find tethered a colt on which no one has ever sat.”                                     Mark 11, 1-10

“He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming as human beings are.”                                                              Philippians 2, 6-11

Again they shouted: “Crucify him!”                               Mark 14, 1–15

Brother Gerard Alvarez cfc, a previous member of the Christian Brothers Congregation Leadership Team sends this message.
"We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our Crisis Relief International (CRI) team is working....Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!"
