Farewell morning tea for Fr Matthew

Dear Parishioners,

After just over 2.5 years, the 8am mass this Saturday, 30 January will be Fr Matthew’s last mass with us.

The Parish Pastoral Council invites you to attend mass followed by a farewell morning tea (in a Covid safe way) for Fr Matthew to acknowledge the great contribution he has made to All Hallows.

Fr Matthew has endeavoured to help us to strengthen and nurture our faith and has a genuine desire for us to be followers of Christ. He has always had the interests of the parish first and foremost. On behalf of the PPC and the members of the Parish as a whole, we offer Fr Matthew our genuine and heartfelt thanks for his ministry and are grateful for the gift of your leadership of our Parish during your time here with us. We are very sad that he is leaving and our Parish will miss him greatly.

May God guide and guard Fr Matthew throughout his life. He will always be in our prayers, wherever he may be.

We wish Fr Matthew well in his ministry and serving the faithful, and hope to see him again one day.
