Bishop Terry Brady confirmed thirteen young people at St Canice’s this morning. In addressing the newly confirmed, Bishop Terry used the example of Australia’s next saint, Eileen O’Connor by dwelling on her example of holiness and saintliness that she demonstrated in the very short life. – (Eileen was the Founder of Our Lady’s Nurses of the Poor.)
On our Feast Day of St Canice, Bishop Terry recalled the Irish roots of this parish and urged all of us here at St Canice's to better understand the story of this sixth century patron saint told in part in the nearly century-old beautiful stained glass windows behind the main altar.
On the Feast Day of St Canice, Bishop Terry Brady officiates at our 10.30 am Mass and installs Fr Paul Fyfe as our parish priest. In welcoming Fr Paul to St Canice's KingsCross Sydney, Bishop Terry also acknowledges other leaders in the parish community, and thanks the Jesuits for all they do in this very special Sydney parish.
