Parishioners of St Aloysius of Gonzaga church in Cronulla turned out in force to officially welcome their new parish priest, Father James McCarthy, on 23 August.
Bishop Richard Umbers presided over the solemn installation Mass and gave Fr James some pieces of advice on serving his flock.
“As leader you have to be ‘omnia omnibus‘, ‘all things to all people”, in the parish,” he said, and encouraged the new parish priest to “listen to the dissenting voices”. “Information that doesn’t fit the plan is important to know,” he added.
