Moore House

Welcome to Moore House

Mother Moore had a great love of teaching and great sense of compassion.

She had a good sense of humour and was very considerate of others.

She allowed the small children to play with her rosary beads while she asked questions to check their knowledge.

She was sent to the new foundation at Mentone, she was said to be very sad to leave Echuca (1905).

She became ill, but continued teaching the children until she was too weak to do so.

Her final whispered advice to the Sisters caring for her were; ‘Love one another, stick together, help one another.’

Mother Benedict Moore

Born: Tullow, Ireland, 1850
