We have learned from a friend that His Grace Archbishop Denis Hart of Melbourne, Australia, has raised the Catholic Community of Blessed John Henry Newman to the rank of a Personal Parish, effective March 28th. The parish is located at the Church of St Aloysius in Caulfield, a suburb of Melbourne; Fr. Glen Tattersall, a priest of the archdiocese who has served the community thus far, along with two other priests, will be formally installed by the Archbishop as the parish priest on Friday 25th April, at 11.00 am. Archbishop Hart’s decree may be read here; the parish’s website contains links to various articles reporting on its establishment, including the archdiocesis’ own website. The website also contains a great many other pages and links detailing the many activities of the parish, links to photos and their youtube channel. Congratulations to the new parish, its clergy and faithful, and thanks to Archbishop Hart for his pastoral generosity.
