Funeral Details - Matthew Wilkins

23 Nov 2016

Dear Members of the Marcellin College Family,

Today I write to update you on the arrangements regarding the celebration of the life of Matthew Wilkins. The requiem mass for Matthew will be:

Date:  Wednesday 30 November 2016
Time:  11am
Venue:  St Clement of Rome Church, 9 Eagan Drive, Bulleen VIC 3105

The Wilkins family have requested that in lieu of flowers, they’d like people to direct their goodwill and support towards Marcellin College’s Bursary program The Saint Marcellin Champagnat Bursary Fund. The College’s Bursary program supports those families who are experiencing financial difficulty, quite often brought about by tragic and trying circumstances. The Marcellin College Foundation was recently established to support this program. Further information can be gained regarding the Bursary here and donations can be made here.

Following the Funeral service, a presentation from the Marcellin Students’ celebrating Matthew’s life will be shown in the St Clement of Rome gymnasium.

Light refreshments have been kindly provided by the parent volunteers from the Marcellin College Community Association (MCCA).

Current students wishing to attend the funeral will be informed of the need for them to complete and return a permission form by 9.00am on Friday 25 November 2016 to Student Services. This permission form will be provided to them via email from the Heads of School. It is important that these forms are returned to enable us to make the necessary arrangements for transportation.

Please continue to keep the Wilkins Family in your thoughts and prayers.


Mark Murphy
