The community of St Joseph's, where Fr Bob and Br Michael live, were joined at their Sunday Mass by guests including the sisters and brothers-in-law of Fr Bob and Br Michael. After the homily, the three read the renewal of their vows. Congratulations were offered at the reception afterwards, and of course, a delicious cake was cut. As the occasion was blessed with good weather, the festivities flowed into the gardens as community and guests mingled and shared happy memories.
On Sunday evening, the Thornleigh community continued the celebrations with their own party and prayers for Fr Michael, their Rector.
We are grateful for the commitment and decades of service to the young that Fr Bob Fr Michael and Br Michael have given and continue to give. Congratulations and ad multos annos!
