We really welcome Bishop Gregory into our Parish family as our Bishop, whose leadership, governance and preaching will assist us greatly on our journey with Jesus.
We pray with and for Bishop Gregory at every Mass. We also look forward to Bishop Gregory in his pastoral work as a successor to The Apostles in our Cathedral.
A Quote from Bishop Gregory: Following the ordination Bishop Homeming told the congregation, ‘I am your bishop; with the emphasis on “your”. I belong to you. The people, religious and priests of Lismore will show me my job. I will listen to you, and together we will discern God’s will for our diocese. Our weaknesses and failings will not be an obstacle because, I believe, they will guide us. As Our Lord said to St Paul, “I am strong in your weakness”. My role is that of a shepherd who leads his people, with a simple focus, to stand in the presence of God. I pray that I will not be an obstacle. I pray that you will come to know the love of Christ and be filled with the utter fullness of God,’ he added.
