Congratulations

Fr Greg Homeming

Sixth Bishop of Lismore

 

Bishop-Elect-Homeming 200

On Tuesday 20 December it was announced that Pope Francis had appointed Fr Greg Homeming OCD as the sixth Bishop of Lismore. Although we will miss Greg and his contribution to our Region, we wish him all the best in his new role as Pastor of the Diocese of Lismore.

 

Fr Greg was serving as the Regional Vicar of the Discalced Carmelites in Australia until this appointment. He is succeeded by Fr Gregory Burke OCD until then our First Councillor.

 

UPDATE: Fr Greg's episcopal ordination and installation will take place at St Carthage's Cathedral, Lismore on Wednesday 22 February (the Feast of the Chair of St Peter) at 7.00pm.

 

Fr Greg Homeming's episcopal ordination next Wed at 7pm will be lived streamed at:

Parish Prayer

Creator God

Life is Your gift to me. Through Baptism, you invite me to share the gift of my life in service to others. Be with me as I choose each day to show Your presence in our world. Give me the courage and generosity to respond to Your love, to Your call. I pray especially for those who serve you in ministry at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish. May we bear the "Good News" to those in need. Keep us close to you. Open the minds and hearts of may other men, women and young people that they may accept Your challenge to build the Kingdom in our parish.
We ask this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
