Last Sunday after Pentecost

Update: 13th November, 2020

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

I am delighted to be able to share with you a selection of photographs taken on the occasion of Anthony Ike’s reception of the cassock and tonsure on 24th October, at the Fraternity of St Peter’s seminary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Denton, Nebraska.

For the benefit of parishioners who have joined the parish more recently, Anthony is originally from Nigeria, but spent several years living at Maryvale while he studied for his Doctorate in chemical engineering. He was the Parish sacristan during his residency with us.

While Anthony is now well into his second year of seminary with the FSSP, Shawn Murphy continues his studies with the Institute of the Good Shepherd, in France. Shawn has received credits for his previous studies in philosophy, and is now in the Theology programme at the Institute’s Seminary of St Vincent de Paul, in Courtalain (near Chartres).

On behalf of Anthony and Shawn, I thank those who have contributed to their financial support. I invite parishioners who have not yet contributed to the support of seminarians from our Parish, to do so. The traditional formation of future priests is simply essential for the continuance and growth of the traditional Mass and all that goes with it. Donations (either one off or regular) should be made to:

Latin Mass (Melbourne) Trust
A/c # 167 975 267

Thank you for your generosity.

in Christ the Priest,

Fr Glen Tattersall PP
