Ernst Fries was a beloved member of the Yarra Glen and Saint Aloysius community, friend to the Cistercian monks at Tarrawarra Abbey, and the wider Saint Brigid’s Parish. He had remarkable artistic talent and he shared his gifts with many. Ernst’s sculptures and metalwork are visible in many places and it is an honour for Saint Aloysius to treasure his chalice, procession crucifix, and stunning candle holders. (His art gallery is Art at Linden Gate.)
Rest in peace Ernst, with your beloved wife Rosemary.
