We recently celebrated the ordination of Fr Conor to the priesthood by His Grace Archbishop Mark Coleridge, the first priestly ordination for the Brisbane Oratory in Formation. Fr Conor then celebrated his first Solemn Mass the next day in our church. Since we couldn’t have an “open church” for the Ordination, on Sunday September 19 we had cake and refreshments after the High Mass, especially for those who were unable to be present at the Ordination itself.

We are sincerely grateful to His Grace, and all the many people who contributed in so many ways to the Ordination celebrations. We are particularly grateful for your prayers for Father as he prepared for ordination, and for all the kindness you have shown in your well wishes and gifts to the newly ordained.
