Thank you to everyone who joined us for Mass yesterday when Fr Christian Irdi concelebrated with Fr Augustine.  And special thanks to all who provided food and cleaned up afterwards!  We all enjoyed Fr Christian’s homily on the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, which we later discovered was impromptu (!) (as he had prepared for different readings).  We never would have noticed as it sounded so well researched!  As you can see from the photos, we all enjoyed ourselves immensely and really appreciated Gus, Anelia and Alessia joining us, as well as a few visitors.  We wish Fr Christian all the best as he now goes to Rome to complete postgraduate studies in Fundamental Theology prior to returning to Perth as a Diocesan Priest.

Our former Altar Boy is ordained!

Philip, when we were part of St. Andrew’s Parish. Congratulations from all of us to Christian and all the Irdi family!
