Our long wait is over and there is a new presence of Christ in His Church.
Christmas greetings to all my readers. This Christmas I was joined by the newly ordained deacon, Lewi Barakat, who is now completing his preparation for the Priesthood in Rome. Deacon Lewi, who is training for the Sydney Archdiocese began his seminary formation in Sydney in the same year that I joined the staff there. It has been a great joy and honour to welcome Deacon Lewi to the parish and to the celebration of this great feast.
Warm greetings to all our Australian colleagues and friends - may our fraternity in Christ's mission bear much fruit.
