New Padre Pio Glenmore Park Catholic Parish Priest Father Robert Riedling has one simple aim in his new job: to listen, reports the Penrith Press.

The Padre Pio Parish has been served by a temporary appointment in the wake of former Parish Priest Father Kevin Lee’s departure.

“I know it’s a younger demographic - like many parts of western Sydney - but I think the important thing is to learn the Parish, who the people are,” Fr Riedling said.

“I know with all that’s happened that there will be mixed feelings there, and my aim is to gauge those feelings, listen, be a presence and be available to the people.”
