Parishioners and friends at St James the Apostle parish, over the past year I have had the privilege of celebrating life with you as a community.
I thank Fr Jude, Fr Silvio and Dcn Royden and the Parish Pastoral Council for their kind invitation and welcome, and you all for embracing me and for your support.
Unfortunately we will not have an opportunity to say a proper farewell, I will be departing Australia on September 9 on my way to my new mission in the Philippines.
Thank you and please keep me in your prayers.
Fr Mario mssp
