Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We are indeed lucky to live in the presence of a Provident God who guides our way and our life with limitless love. Those of you who have green fingers, and I certainly have not, will know what you can do with a cutting from a bush or tree, how it will grow and multiply towards another bush. Those extraordinary words in the first Reading: “And every tree of the field will learn that I the Lord am the one who stunts tall trees and makes the low ones grow.” (Ezekiel 17:23)

Wednesday 13 June 2018

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Together with his nieces Sharon and Therese, family members, brother priests and friends, we come to bid farewell to Father Stanley Norman Hill who served here in Clifton Hill for nearly twenty years. Last Wednesday, in the 92nd year of his age and the 63rd year of his priesthood, he died peacefully at St Bernadette's Home in North Sunshine, as he had always lived, as a priest of God.
