“How can we sing the Lord’s song on alien land?”
Bishop Vincent Long was born in 1961 in Dong Nai Vietnam. In 1984 he became a professed Conventual Franciscan friar and studied for the priesthood in Melbourne. He was ordained in 1989 and was sent to Rome for further studies. He served as parish priest for seven years in Kellyville and for seven years in Springvale Victoria before being elected Superior of the Order of Friars Minor Conventuals in Australia in 2005. Bishop Long also served as Assistant General in Rome from 2008 to 2011. In 2011 he was appointed an Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne and in 2016 was appointed the fourth Bishop of Parramatta. Bishop Long has chosen as his Coat of Arms and Motto: ‘Go out into the deep’. The thoughts of this prominent Church leader are always thought provoking, an occasion not to be missed.
