New Administrator for Cathedral Parish

St Christopher’s Cathedral

Archbishop Christopher Prowse has announced the appointment of the new Administrator of St Christopher’s Cathedral.

Fr Trenton van Reesch

Fr Trenton van Reesch will be taking on the position of Administrator, effective Friday June 14.

In addition to Administrator of the Cathedral, Fr Trenton will also be the Assistant Vocations Director.

Archbishop Christopher also advised that, due to pending retirements, the parishes of Charnwood, Goulburn and Wanniassa will soon become vacant.

The Archbishop will be overseas from June – 16 to July 19 as part of the Ad Limina Apostolorum. The visit occurs every five to six years and provides an opportunity for Bishops to strengthen their own responsibility as successors of the apostles and to deepen their solidarity with the successor of St Peter, Pope Francis.

    I hope Manuka realise how lucky they are to have
    Trenton.  He of course will be and do an amazing job.   His ability to connect to the congregation is amazing.   He is wise beyond his years.   Trenton left an indelible mark on our community in Temora.   Good luck Trenton with the next part of your spiritual journey

    What must the public think of yet another hierarchical figure to be appointed to the diocese. Still again no mention of being given a portfolio relating to the crisis in the Church. This is a lost opportunity in the week that Cardinal Pell has his appeal. When is the hierarchy of the Church going to listen. Be brave & bold !
