The Père Receveur Mass is hosted each year by the St. Andrews Catholic Church  of Malabar to honour the memory of Père Receveur who died at Botany Bay in 1788 during the visit of the Laperouse Expedition.

It is my pleasure to extend to all members and their guests an invitation to attend this very special occasion to be held at the front of the Laperouse Museum commencing at 11.00 am sharp. Although a marquee and seating will be provided you may wish to bring your own folding chair and ensure you slip, slop, slap and dress for the conditions on the day. The Friends are assisting on the day and will be manning a table with free water, cordial, etc adjacent to the marquee. Seaside Lions Club will provide a sausage sizzle.

Dr. William Land AM, President, Friends of the Laperouse Museum
