WELCOME TO THE NEW PARISH PRIEST
The Archbishop has appointed Fr. Joseph Lu Xin (pronounced “Zin”) to be the next parish priest of this parish. I have only spoken to Fr. Joseph briefly and he will come and visit the parish a few times before he takes over the reins on the 12th January.  Fr. Joseph was born in China and came to Australia when he was 20 to study and become a Divine Word Missionary. His training of 9 years happened in Australia and then he was posted to the Philippines and he has been there for the last ten years. He wishes to be a Diocesan priest in Melbourne.
I know that you will make him welcome and assist him in his transition.
