Loyal and loving service to the people of Granville

From the Requiem Mass Homily of Rev Fr Peter Blayney for Rev Fr (Michael) Leslie Campion, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Granville, Tuesday 25 March 2014

Les had a well-deserved reputation for his care of others. This service to the gospel included the publicly spectacular day he spent in the wrecked carriages of the Granville Train disaster on 18 January 1977.

If our memories are the dearest and the cheapest of luxuries, then we are richly blessed when we think of Les Campion.

Great honour for a great man of the Church

Rome Reports

Statement by Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, Bishop of Parramatta, 26 February

I would like to congratulate Cardinal George Pell on his appointment as Prefect for the Economy of the Holy See. This is a great honour for a great man of the Church and for the Church in Australia.

Cardinal Pell will hold the most senior position in the Church ever held by an Australian and he will devote his very considerable gifts to this new service.
