Tobin Brothers St Albans - Celebrating our Local Community
Tobin Brothers St Albans proudly support community events, churches and community groups in our local area. Through sponsorships and events we strengthen our community ties and remain an active part of our community in St Albans and surrounding suburbs.
Brimbank Central Rotary Club
Tobin Brothers Funerals Branch Manager, Lou Gionfriddo, is a past president of the Brimbank Central Rotary Club which has enabled Lou to participate in many and varied community activities, such as local art shows with schools in Brimbank. Tobin Brothers Funerals are wonderful supporters of Rotary and the ideals it stands for. The Rotary Club gives people an opportunity to achieve things that they might not get to try without such support.
Resurrection Parish Kings Park
Tobin Brothers Funerals as a whole offers a number of programs to families that have experienced a death of a loved one. Tobin Brothers St Albans are supporting a six week course for care givers with Resurrection Parish Kings Park, participants will be given excellent tools that they will be able to use as care givers. The monthly Loss and Grief group also meet at the parish and this has been an ongoing gathering for four years or so.
The Beacon Foundation
Tobin Brothers St Albans, Branch Manager, Lou Gionfriddo also supports the Beacon Foundation with St Albans Secondary College. The Beacon Foundation works with year ten students to give them opportunities such as work experience, speed careering days and other activities designed to encourage young people to go on to do further studies after secondary school. Tobin Brothers has been represented to this community through a number of programs that are run by The Beacon Foundation at St Albans Secondary College and have been supporting The Beacon Foundation for many years.
All Souls Day Masses
Tobin Brothers St Albans proudly sponsor the All Souls Day Mass at Keilor Cemetery, and Branch Manager, Lou Gionfriddo has been involved with the event since it's inception in 1994. Tobin Brothers are proud to be involved in the continuation of these services which enable people to come along and pray for their loved ones, to remember and to commemorate their lives, each November.
St Patricks Junior Football Club
Tobin Brothers St Albans sponsor St Patricks Junior Football Club and donate trophies which are presented by Lou Gionfriddo at their awards night.
Brimbank Central Golf Day
The annual Brimbank Central Golf Day for 2015 was held at the Medway Golf Club in conjunction with the Keilor East Rotary Club. In the seventeen years it has run, the golf day has raised over $100,000 for Rotary. Tobin Brothers Funerals has been a great supporter of the event since its inception; our Tobin staff participate in the event, and Tobin Brothers St Albans Branch Manager, Lou Gionfriddo acts as auctioneer for the evening helping to raise funds for local and international Rotary projects.
Rosary Home, Keilor Downs
Tobin Brothers proudly sponsored the BBQ lunch at Rosary Home, Keilor Downs in November 2015, with St Albans Branch Manager, Lou Gionfriddo behind the grill cooking lunch on the day with his wife Nonie. 50 residents of the Rosary Home Aged Care Facility were at the lunch with some of their families who also attended a Mass held in the Chapel afterward. Rosary Home is a multicultural facility that welcomes residents of different nationalities and denominations, offering comfortable accommodation for the elderly who are capable of basic self care.
Each year, Tobin Brothers St Albans host a seminar for student nurses from Victoria University. Branch manager, Lou Gionfriddo and Tobin Brothers Community Education Manager, Samantha Rennie conduct a seminar detailing what happens to the deceased once they are transferred into our care. The students are also given valuable information on grief and how to guide families in their time of need, the importance of a funeral and celebrating the life of a loved one and how Tobin Brothers plan a funeral to suit the needs of the family. This programme started a number of years ago and has been well recognised by Victoria University. It is now part of their curriculum for junior nurses.

Tobin Brothers St Albans also support all of our local church parishes in a vast number of ways.
When friends or family are unable to attend a funeral service because they live in a nursing home,interstate or overseas or when they may have commitments that can not be changed, a funeral webcast is a logical alternative. Webcasting a funeral enables absent mourners the opportunity to view and hear the funeral live from anywhere in the world for far less than the cost of travelling to the service.
To Access a Webcast
To access a webcast or to view a service that has already been webcast enter the deceased’s surname into the Funeral Service Search box to the right of the screen.
