Sad news for our School and Parish

Dear Families/Parishioners,

We learned on Thursday morning this week, that our beloved Parish Priest, Fr. John Mulligan, passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Fr. John was more than a Parish Priest.  He was an inspiration to those privileged to spend time with him.

His drive, energy, deep faith and sense of humour, brought people in our Parish together for the common good.

I was due to travel this weekend to Liverpool with Fr. John, to be part of the Eucharist Congress that he had played a huge part in organising for the Diocese.  I will to honour his memory, still be attending to ensure that the school plays its part for the future, in what Fr. John has helped to start.

At times, such as these, prayer becomes central.  Please pray for our Parish, our children and for the joyous soul of Fr. John Mulligan.  We will continue to keep him close in our hearts.

God Bless

Justin Dachtler
