One year ago, Archbishop Porteous exorcised and blessed Jerusalem Estate. Today the community planted and blessed an olive tree at what we intend to be the future location of the monastery. We have baptised this particular part of the property Mount Olivet because of its close resemblance with the three hills of the Olivetan (white) Benedictines. At the same time, we pray that our community may be a presence of peace, inviting all Tasmanians and Australians to turn their eyes towards the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ Our Lord, who is adored and served in our community.
