Murchison Ossario Remembrance Day Memorial Service

Quick Info

When:
11 November 2018 at 10:30am
Where:
Italian Ossario, Murchison Cemetery, Willoughby Street, Murchison

During the 1950’s when Italian immigration commenced in Australia, Murchison Cemetery became a place of pilgimmage and Mass was celebrated before a temporary altar draped with both the Australian and Italian flags. Since the Ossario was built and dedicated in 1961, Mass has been celebrated before a permanent altar of white Italian marble every Remembrance Sunday in November.

The 130 Italians, who, through circumstances of war have their last resting place in Murchison many thousands of kilometres from their homeland are not forgotten and are remembered in this way each year on Remembrance Sunday.
