Two Adelaide men, Tee Ping Koh and Alfred Donat, will be ordained as deacons by Bishop Greg O’Kelly SJ on November 29 at 7pm in St Patrick’s Church, Grote Street.
Their ordination to the permanent diaconate was welcomed by Administrator Delegate Fr Philip Marshall, who encouraged as many people as possible to attend this “significant” diocesan event.
“We congratulate Mr Koh and Mr Donate on this important moment in their ministerial journey, and thank the Ministry Formation Program for the years of support and formation,” he said.
Bishop Morris talk
Bishop Bill Morris, former Bishop of Toowoomba, will speak about future directions for the Church in Australia at the Cross Road Forum on November 26.
Bishop Morris was controversially removed from pastoral care of his diocese in May 2011 at the age of 67.
His talk, entitled A vision for our future Church, is timely in the lead up to the Plenary Council and will draw on the learnings from Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical Laudato Si’.
The Cross Road Forum will take place from 7.30-9pm at the Sebastian Centre, The Monastery, 15 Cross Road, Glen Osmond.
