Welcome Fr Paul

Fr Paul Walsh CSSP is visiting Australia at present.

For those who do not know him he was the a former Parish Priest who saw the inauguration of The Lakes Catholic Parish.

He will be celebrating Mass at St Joseph Church this Saturday at 5.30pm and at St Rose Church on Sunday at 8am.

There will be morning tea after 9.30am Mass at St Joseph Church on Sunday if you would like to greet Fr Paul.

Unfortunately I will be in Perth this weekend for a long standing commitment.

I wish Fr Paul a pleasant stay in Australia and in our parish.
