Br Michael Kirgan Christmas Appeal
Brother Michael Kirgan was one of the Monastery’s legendary figures. In 1983 three members of the Glen Osmond St Vincent de Paul Conference began organizing and distributing Christmas Hampers. Br. Michael became involved and expanded the number of hampers distributed across Adelaide to families and individuals in need.
After Br.Michael’s death in 1993, a committee was formed and the Appeal registered as a charity. The Appeal not only assembles and distributes over 200 hampers each Christmas, it also financially assists various charitable organisations through Adelaide and distributes groceries- only Gift Cards to assist some Catholic Parishes
