The bishop preached at both churches and at the end of the service, Suzanne, Greg and Dianne, the wardens, announced our new priest. Our new priest starts in February and his name is Bruce Boase. The wardens said as soon as they met him for the interview, they knew he was special. So it is an exciting time for our parish. With the wonders of technology, Greg told us that Father Bruce is featured on a You Tube video here. Father Bruce talks on the video about being an Anglican and an Indigenous Australian; a man of great faith.
Then at noon was the best part of the visit...lunch in St John's hall. I reckon church halls all have a similar look don't they? lol
