Location: Carmel of Jesus, Mary & Joseph,5523 Cobb Highway, Mathoura NSW 2710

The Monastery is located about halfway between Denilliquin and Mathoura, about 55km north of Echuca, Vic.

Due to the fact that the Monastery Chapel is so small, Holy Mass will be celebrated outside. It is recommended that those attending bring a hat, sunscreen and water, and wear clothing appropriate for the day’s weather conditions.

Following Holy Mass, there will be a light lunch at Deniliquin RSL, 72 End St, Deniliquin NSW

It will be possible for those attending to meet with the Sisters in small groups in the Monastery ‘speakroom’ between 3pm and 5pm on the day.

For those travelling from afar, the Monastery is a comfortable drive less than 3 hours from both Melbourne (Tullarmarine) and Albury airports. Accommodation in the local area is readily available, including motels and caravan parks at Mathoura, Deniliquin and Echuca/Moama. The following links are provided for convenience:
