A Message From The Chairman
Welcome to the Society of Saint Hilarion and I hope you will find our website to be interesting and informative. It is a great privilege to be involved with an organisation with such a strong heritage and with a clear purpose of serving the elderly in our community.
I encourage you to explore the various sections on this site and invite you to contact one of our friendly staff with any questions that you have. Aged care can be quite a complex issue, however we are here to provide you with as much information and assistance as possible if you are looking to make a decision in relation to a member of your family.
Currently we are raising money towards a Bus to enable transport of Residents and the Community at St Hilarion in special activities, outings and annual feast days.
Please help support us by making a donation.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation can contact Rosa Peters on 0403 480 196 or email email@example.com
The Feast Day of Saint HilarionSunday 26th October 2014Mater Christi, Grange Rd, Seaton
Sunday the 26th October is when we celebrate the feast day with a street procession around the surrounding streets of the Parish with the statue of St Hilarion and then an open air mass. The festivities carry on throughout the day with various entertainment and activities for all ages culminating in a fabulous evening with "Fortunato" an excellent entertainer from Brisbane.
This is quite an extraordinary event celebrating 60 years. We will be actually celebrating it in grand manner next year in 2015 for the 60th anniversary. It has certainly been a huge accomplishment by all people involved in the feast activities from the first feast in 1955 to today. I am sure that the original founders of the Society of St Hilarion would never have believed that what they commenced in 1955 as an adoration to their patron Saint of their home town would have evolved into what it is today. With 5 generations of fellow Calabrese and proud Adelaideians celebrating this feast day in great honour. So please come and join us in a day of great friendship and traditional activities.
Remember all funds raised over the 60 years of feasts are what funded the ability for The Society of St Hilarion to so proudly enter aged care and to be able to provide the excellent facilities and services that are enjoyed by our residents and families today.
Buona Festa , Evviva Sant'Ilarione.
Rosemary Velardo, President of the Society of Saint Hilarion.
