Following some months of stress and ill-health, Fr Paul Chandler is taking extended leave.

Towards the end of June, he will be moving from the Oratory for three months to assist in a parish in another diocese.

During this time of rest and recovery, he will be supported both spiritually and practically by the Oratory Community.

In this time of formation for the Brisbane Oratory, the Fathers considered it advisable that a Moderator be in residence.

Thus, Fr Paul has resigned as Moderator and a new Moderator has been elected.

The new Moderator is Fr Adrian Sharp, who assumes the office this day, May 25th for a term of three years.
