二零一七年五月七日


Hello everybody:

Greetings to all in this time of Easter. Very soon you will start to hear the news of my new appointment as the Parish Priest at Castle Hill, St Bernadette’s Parish. The appointment takes effect on the 17th of July, after my trip to Rome. This means a stage on the life of this parish is about to close and a new exciting phase is about to start.

Thank you for your support over the last few years, I am sure you will be there too to assist the new Parish Priest to feel at home and welcomed just as you did with me. My final weekend at St Monica’s will be on the 15/16 of July.

I take with me many memories of my time in this parish and I hope you welcome the new priest with the same enthusiasm you did with me. Although I still do not know who will be coming to St Monica’s, I wish him the best and I hope he will be as happy I have been in this place for the last ten and a half years.

Peace in Jesus

Fernando Montano

Parish Priest
