Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Today we celebrate the Feast of John the Baptist who proclaimed Jesus Christ as the Light of the World, and gave himself that he might become less and less so that Christ would become more. We are united with Father Kevin O'Neill, the Superior General and Father Brian Vale, the Director for Australia and New Zealand, and with a number of Columbans who have joined us for this Mass of Thanksgiving today for their Centenary.

Ordination to the Priesthood of Tho Tran celebrated by Archbishop Denis Hart in St Patrick's Cathedral Melbourne

Saturday 23 June 2018

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I welcome all of you to this celebration of ordination to the priesthood for Tho Tran who, after preparation in our seminary and generous pastoral work, comes forward to be ordained to the priesthood.

I welcome members of his family and all who have come for this recognition, that the gift of priesthood in the Church is the living presence of Jesus Christ in word and sacrament to unite us, his people, to be with him always.
