Last week, Archbishop Denis requested all Melbourne Priests to undertake professional development at this Conference over four days. 131 priests including Fathers Martin Ashe, Greg Bourke, Philip Le and Linh Tran, who served us here in the past, lived in at the conference centre where we prayed, enjoyed each other’s company and heard four wonderful presenters: a theology lecturer, a biblical scholar, a Burmese asylum seeker and the Catholic coordinator  working at the Royal Commission into institutional child abuse. We prayed the Prayer of the Church and the Eucharist but also prayed in small groups of eight. We viewed the movie “The Lady” about the life of Aung San Suu Kyi, how she sacrificed her life for her country.
The topics were well-integrated with each other. It was great to catch up with fellows from other parts of our large diocese. I consider our conference was excellent as it was inspiring and thought provoking.

The regular inspection last Friday found our parish is complying with the government regulations.
