August 8 is the Feast of Australia's first saint, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop. This year I led the music at Mass at St Patrick's in Asquith. In the evening I was part of a panel as we discussed Men's Spirituality. A fun night!
On August 14 I filled in for my son-in-law and led the music at the Bishop's Gathering, where Year 6 students from the southern part of our Diocese gather to meet and celebrate with Bishop Brian Mascord. It was my first chance to meet him since he became our bishop back in February. We are both lucky and blessed to ahve such a good man as our pastoral leader.
