The Most Reverend Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv has appointed Rev Reginaldo Lavilla MSP, currently Assistant Priest at St Matthew’s Parish Windsor as Administrator of St Monica’s Parish North Parramatta from 17 July, 2017.
In his own words Fr Reggie says:
"I'm almost 12 years as a priest, and within those years, I spent two in Rome for my Licentiate in Moral Theology in Alfonsianum. I went back to the Philippines to work in our seminary as a procurator/bursar and Philosophy and Theology Seminarians Director. I also taught courses in Moral Theology at the Divine Word School of Theology. I held those roles for five years until I was asked by my Superior last June 2013 to come to the Diocese of Parramatta. I was assistant priest in Mary Immaculate Parish, Quakers Hill for more than two years and recently assistant priest of St. Matthew’s Parish, Windsor. For almost four years in the Diocese of Parramatta, part of my role is a member of the On-going Formation of Clergy Committee, the Filipino Chaplaincy and recently Bishop Vincent appointed me as the Chaplain for the CCR - Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
I was ordained in the Philippines 10th of December 2005”
Please join me in giving thanks to God for the appointment of the new spiritual leader at St Monica’s. I am confident he will be as happy in this parish as I have been in the last ten and a half years.
Peace in Jesus
