SIGNS OF HOPE – Making a Difference

  •  16 July 2019
     7:30PM - 9:00PM

Fr Peter Carrucan and Sr Colleen Leonard sgs speak about making a difference for the better of many people.

Born in 1932, Fr Peter Carrucan is an amazing, passionate, “retired”, octogenarian, servant model priest.

Peter has cared for asylum seekers, refugees, the poor, the sick and all those in need for many, many years and continues to do so. He has a strong concern for social justice and in the words of Pope Francis “has the smell of the sheep about him.” He provides pastoral care to refugees in this Archdiocese and is very actively making a difference for the better for many people.

Colleen Leonard is a Good Samaritan Sister, Retreat Facilitator and Spiritual Director at the Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality, Kew. Colleen also enjoys freelancing ministry which embraces pastoral support of Asylum Seekers and Refugees.
