Mrs Anne McLean –
St Mary’s Sacramental Coordinator, member of the Liturgy Group and Parish Council, represented the Parish on the Diocesan Pastoral Council and Diocesan Education Council are just some of the roles Anne has voluntarily undertaken over many, many years. Anne has been an advocate for the parish, Catholic Education and particularly for St Matthews School.
Anne is taking a step back after so many years and one wonders how we can thank her for her contributions to our parish over the years.
Mr Simon Bennett –
Chair, St Mary’s Finance and Management Committee.
Simon is also stepping back after a number of years on the Finance Committee. We thank him most sincerely for his advise and expertise in assisting the Parish Priests over the years, especially to Fr Owen over this past three years.
Mrs Louise Nicholson – Baptism Prep Coordinator.
We thank Louise for her years of service in welcoming and preparing families for the Sacrament of Baptism. The importance of families feeling welcomed to the parish is so
important, and Louise has always greeted the families with warmth and a generous smile.
We extend our gratitude and thanks to
Anne, Simon, Louise and Julie (retiring Pastoral Council President) for their voluntary works within the parish.
We have been so blessed to have your expertise.
We take this opportunity to welcome some new faces to leadership roles within the parish.
Mr Mike Fergus – Chair, Finance and Management Committee.
Mr Chris Devitt – President, Pastoral Council
Mrs Ruella Petersen – Sacramental Coordinator
