“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.

Come and enjoy some reflection, silence and solitude in the beautiful Marist grounds. Holy Name of Mary Church is usually open.

Typically, our reflection mornings follow this format: we begin with an input from our speaker, followed by a period of personal reflection. You might take some morning tea at this time if you wish. There follows another period of input. The there is another period of reflection. You may stay in the hall, wander in the grounds or find a spot to sit in the sum. We try to maintain the silence. Finally, we gather for conversation with our presenter and each other.

Please put some time aside for yourself and join us for this beautiful experience.
