Farewell to Lynelle

Our St Canice Parish Manager of six years, the smiling, 'can-do' Lynelle Lembryk, is moving on to a position that allows her to spend more time with family and be a first-time grandmother to new baby Ryan. Lynelle leaves big shoes to fill. There are so many aspects to what Lynelle contributes to the success of the parish. Attention to administration, bookkeeping, facilities management of many buildings on the property, and parishioner communications duties is to be expected in such a position. But, perhaps even more importantly here in a parish like St Canice’s, Lynelle brings a special gift of a ‘listening ear’ to the many who telephone, or knock on the door of the parish office every day, or who are guests in Canice Kitchen. True to the Jesuit Universal Apostolic Preferences, Lynelle patiently accompanies and comforts so many troubled people.

Our new Parish Priest – Dave Braithwaite SJ

We are pleased to announce that, in consultation with our Jesuit Provincial, Fr Quyen Vu SJ, Most Rev. Anthony Fisher OP, Archbishop of Sydney, has appointed Fr David Braithwaite SJ as the next Parish Priest of St Canice’s. Fr Dave is no stranger to the Parish as he has been living here for over a year while writing his doctoral thesis on Systematic Theology. Previously, Father David was involved in the Jesuit Australian Province’s ministry with young adults for about ten years.
