Fr Bob Sheridan was installed as Parish Priest of Sacred Heart Parish, Blackheath on 4 July by Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP.
Fr Bob was previously Administrator of the Sacred Heart Parish, encompassing Blackheath, St Joseph’s in the Megalong Valley and St Paul’s, Mount Victoria.
In his homily, Bishop Anthony said: "Today the Lord instructs Fr Bob as he does the first disciples: to go to you and stay put, rather than forever looking for greener pastures, to receive with open heart the hospitality of your community, to recognise the fruits of God’s work among you, to bring healing and to assist you in the spiritual battles that come to us all.
"It will be his task to teach, sanctify and lead, to give the priestly service of proclaiming the closeness of the kingdom of God to you...leading and working with you to ensure that a new creation truly flourishes in Blackheath and beyond."
