Carols at the convent

The McAuley Foundation is the fundraising arm of Mercy Health and Aged Care. Following the success of their inaugural carols night in 2006, the Foundation invites all members of the Mercy network and friends who will be in Melbourne on December 1 to join them for “Carols at the Convent”, a star-studded evening of carols and entertainment.

Julie Anthony heads up a fabulous cast, including John Lidgerwood as MC and Alexandra Lidgerwood will once again entertain the younger children. "Cupcake" the Clown – a big hit from last year – will return again.

The carols will be held in the grounds of the Abbotsford Convent (1 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford). Gates open at 6:00 pm so that families can enjoy the music and entertainment. Carols start at 7:30 pm.

Families (includes 2 adults and up to 3 school aged children) – $45.00
Mercy staff or Concession – $10.00
Adult – $20.00
Children – $5.00

Booking forms are available online at
