The 2018 graduates were presented with Indigenous crosses during the end of year Mass in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on December 7.

MFP student Tee Ping Koh was master of ceremonies at the graduation celebration where families and friends joined students in celebrating another successful year of study and formation.

Tee Ping invited all those gathered to be inspired and amazed at the success stories that they were about to hear.  He acknowledged the Holy Spirit working in many ways throughout the year in the hearts of the students and in their parishes and their communities.

Apostolic Delegate Fr Philip Marshall presented the students with their graduation certificates, congratulating them and expressing his gratitude to them for their commitment to ministry in the Archdiocese.

Special guest Br Michael Callinan fms, campus ministry manager at Australian Catholic University, North Sydney Campus, acknowledged Mary Anne Quinn for her completion of the Graduate Diploma in Theological Studies.

Ministry Formation resumes on February 16 for the 2019 year. Enquiries can be made to or by ringing Mrs Suzanne Horan on 8152 7800.
