he Marian Friary Immaculate Gate of Heaven in Munster began with the generous donation of land on Henderson Road. Prior to the construction of the friary, the friars resided in Swanborne, Perth from January of 2003 until July of 2006. After the friary was finished, they moved to Munster which is about half an hour from the city.
Immaculate Gate of Heaven
The community is a fairly modest-sized friary which can house about 10 friars with living quarters appropriate for the life of the friars. A future chapel and multipurpose hall are planned for future construction to facilitate some of the apostolate and services of the friars in the area.
The friars are active in numerous apostolates especially in the area of spiritual direction, periodic retreats both for youth and adult, spiritual assistance to Marian Family Cenacles, a family-oriented gathering, as well as the organisation of "A Day with Mary".
AusMaria is the official site of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in Western Australia. AusMaria is an abbreviation of the Latin slogan, "Australia pro Maria", that is, "Australia for Mary". Our site intends to bring Mary to Australia and to the whole world by means of Marian evangelisation through the internet.
