Peace of Mind for You And Your Family All parishioners are invited to the farewell morning tea held on Sunday 8 February, after the 10:30am Mass so please join us as we farewell our much loved Assistant Priest, Fr Daniel Boyd and as we congratulate him on his new appointment as the Parish Priest at St Vincent Kwinana Parish. Fr Daniel, who was ordained on 4 March 2011, served the parish for only 12 months and during that time he has endeared himself to many parishioners. Fr Daniel supported all the Ministries and prayer groups in the parish by his attendance and encouragement. Recently he articulated to many parishioners that his leave-taking would be difficult but how that demonstrated that he had done his work well and connected with many people since his arrival. He has repeatedly thanked the parishioners for welcoming him and encouraging him on his priestly journey. Although we are very sad to see Fr Daniel go, we trust that the Lord will continue to bless him abundantly and we hope that his deep love of God and the Church will keep him company as he continues on the next leg of his journey in the Kwinana Parish. Fr Thai and the parishioners look forward to warmly welcoming Fr Joe Cardoso as the new Assistant Priest at this weekend’s Masses. 9354 3000 This space is available for advertising from January to June 2015 Why not promote and increase your business by advertising in our newsletter.
