Celebrating Norm Cassidy’s 90th birthday.

on the 13th September, Norm celebrated his 90th birthday. He is our oldest confrere. He has been ordained priest of the mission for 36 years. As was reported today, in the speeches at the luncheon, Norm has been a mentor to many, especially his family; he has been a gentle person who connects with people of all ages and brings the presence of Christ into situations. We give thanks to the Lord for the gift of Norm for, in the words of Terry, his nephew, we journey towards the next big occasion – 100 years!

How children see us!

It is extremely interesting to understand how our children in the local Parish Primary School see us as priest, as a person, as a Vincentian. The St Anthony’s Primary School children decided to have a “Portrait” Day in which everyone had to draw a portrait of Fr. Brian. Scary though the thought is, some of the entrants were brilliant. If nothing, they are funny! Hope you all can have a giggle too.

In Joe’s opinion, this beats Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and Manly beach!

Now, Joe is enroute to the Solomon Islands, visiting our International Mission in Honiara.
