Melbourne Lockdown Games.

Change lockdown into Fun and Games

Our Games Pledge

When we heard that another 6 weeks of lockdown was coming, we decided to make it 6 weeks of Olympic Games.

Carpet Bowls

Quoits

Skittles

Balloon Tennis

walkathon - wheelchairathon

Mind Games - Quizes Cross words etc.

All Games where social distancing is maintained.

The Games are continuing past the 6 weeks due to continuing lockdown and the fact that they are being greatly enjoyed.

Closing Ceremony will be later...much later...

Our Games will reflect the spirit of the Olympic Games

where the goal is not to win but to take part,

just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph

but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have

conquered but to have fought well.

During this corona virus pandemic,we will hope in the Lord

and renew our strength.                                                                                                                                                         

We will raise our heads above the pandemic and allow our

human spirits to soar on wings like eagles;

we will run and not grow weary, we will walk and not be faint.

We will combat the deep concern and anxiety of the world                                                                                 

 with our joy, our trust and our love.

 During this 6 weeks we will pray with great faith and fervour                                                                                        

 we will play with energy and enjoyment and we will fill the

atmosphere with our laughter enabling it to permeate

the cosmos with the positive energy needed to kill the virus.

Closing of Games and Award Presentations

Our Mission is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.

We adhere at all times to the Philosophy, Ethics and Moral Law of the Catholic Church, from whom the Congregation has received its mission.
