A Day to Rejoice!

Following Sunday evening Mass on the 5th of February 2023, the Parishioners in St John's Exmouth welcomed Redemptorist Priests, Fr Tuyen Vu CSsR and Fr Tim Tapoona CSsR, to their Parish.

The Redemptorist Congregation have generously offered the services of these young priests to Minister and care for the Parish Communities of St Mary Star of the Sea Carnarvon and St John's Exmouth for the next couple of years, which includes the school of St Mary Star of the Sea, located in Carnarvon.

Fr John Hill CSsR, a retired Redemptorist, will be joining these two young priests shortly, and together the three will care for these communities. 

The last Redemptorist to serve in the Diocese of Geraldton was Fr John Martin who was located for five years in St Cecilia's, Port Hedland. He was much loved and admired. His ministry in the north came to a halt when he was diagnosed with cancer and returned to his Community in Perth before passing away in June 2018.

It is without a doubt the new Redemptorists to our Diocese will also quickly endear themselves in the community and settle in as well as Fr John Martin did.
