All year round, a faithful legion of women and men serve many requests and demands to keep our parishes running.

In gratitude for their professional expertise and service, the Parish Secretaries Day was held at the Chancery in Parramatta on 2 December.

Parish secretaries and office staff came together to celebrate the achievements and milestones for 2015, while hearing about developments and changes within the Diocese planned for the New Year.

The day included tours by Chancery staff, a reflection from Rev Paul Roberts and official updates and news in the form of presentations from the Diocesan Administrator, Very Rev Peter Williams, and the Chief of Operations & Finance, Geoff Officer.

Fr Peter was the principal celebrant for Mass in St Patrick’s Cathedral, which was followed by a celebratory lunch at El-Phoenician Restaurant for some delicious Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. A few lucky secretaries won raffle prizes.

A great day was had by all, with many new faces getting the opportunity to meet those who had served their parishes for many years.
