The Order of St John of God came to Australia from Ireland in 1947. Its first work was in New South Wales for boys with learning difficulties. In 1953, the Brothers purchased the site that formerly housed the Methodist Homes for Children at Cheltenham and established the St John of God Training Centre.

Details

The St John of God Brothers ran a number of institutions in Victoria, including Churinga in Greensborough, the Marian Lodge Training Centre, Raelene Hostel in Mentone, and Yarra View in Lilydale.
