Back to Coragulac for the Good Samaritan Sisters

On Wednesday 26th November, Thomas Carr College hosted a “back to” Coragulac for the Good Samaritan Sisters at the recently refurbished Good Samaritan Campus which was the former Convent of the Good Samaritan Sisters. Fr Jude Pirotta mssp, Canonical Administrator of Thomas Carr College celebrated Mass at 11.00am in the restored Chapel. Members of the St James Parish, Hoppers Crossing North led the singing during the Mass which ensured it was a wonderful Eucharistic celebration to mark this special occasion for the Good Samaritan Campus and for the Good Samaritan Sisters. Mass was followed by a luncheon and a tour of the newly refurbished facilities along with an outline of the College’s country experience program. The day provided many of the Good Samaritan Sisters with the opportunity to reminisce on the past and marvel at the works undertaken by Thomas Carr College to provide a wonderful facility for students. Many commented on how life would have been much more comfortable if some of the heating and renovated bathroom facilities had been in place when they were residents. The Good Samaritan Convent at Coragulac is a wonderful historic building and a place that is of great importance in the local Coragulac/Cororooke community. Thomas Carr College is delighted to have been able to renovate the building and once again enable the Convent to be used for Catholic Education. Sisters Stella Gleeson, Teresa Lanigan, Myra Gleeson, Mary O’Shannessy and Helen-Mary Ryan who attended the “back to” Coragulac were also students of the Convent School from Prep to Matriculation.
