Father Philip Alesin

I’m Father Philip Alesin, a Priest of the Catholic Diocese of Ekiti, Nigeria. Born on 9 January 1977, my journey to the priesthood started at St John of the Cross Spiritual Year Seminary in Nigeria in January 1997. In continuation of my formation, I proceeded to the Seminary of Saints Peter and Paul, Ibadan, Nigeria (an affiliate of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria and Pontifical Urban University, Italy) in October, where I completed bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and Sacred Theology in 2001 and 2005 respectively. I was raised to the Order of Deacons in December 2004 and ordained a Priest on 13 August 2005. After working in my diocese for nine years, I was offered a place of study at the University of Glasgow, Scotland to do an MSc in Global Security on a Commonwealth Shared Scholarship jointly sponsored by the University and the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) from September 2014 to September 2015. Upon completing my program, I went back home to continue my priestly ministry until last April, when I began my PhD studies at The University of Queensland’s School of Political Science and International Studies, thanks to a generous UQ international scholarship. I am grateful to Archbishop Mark Coleridge and the Vicar General, Monsignor Peter Meneely, for giving me the opportunity to stay at Holy Family Catholic Parish, Indooroopilly, as Priest in Residence, so that I may continue serving God’s people as a priest of the Catholic Church during my doctoral studies at UQ. I’m equally appreciative of the warm welcome I’ve received from the Parish Priest, Father Neville Yun. May God reward your labour of love. Amen. Father Philip Alesin

From Father Nev

5-4-20 – Palm Sunday

Hi everyone,

From the beginning of Lent and in the month where COVID-19 has changed the world we arrive at the start of Holy Week. We recall Jesus entering the city where he is lauded as King, Son of David. Many at the time believed the Messiah would save them Roman occupation. There were those too who wanted to crucify Jesus as his claims of being the Son of God were blasphemous. We too are living in uncertain times. Business as usual does not help our situation. We are living in a moment of time of incredible change, change that has been imposed. People are having to work from home, families and friends are forced to spend more time together and maintain social distancing. What a complete irony!! People are losing jobs, worrying about rent, studies and mortgages. People are anxious about remaining productive, meeting deadlines and accomplishing goals Equally people have more time. There is time to sit still and be rather than be caught in that trap of needing to be busy. We have time to spend in prayer and reflect on. There is an opportunity to ask ourselves what truly satisfies me? What is important to me? Were the things I was pursuing pre Corona helping me to grow and making me happy? Am I at peace in my Spirit with where my life is or am I realising that I’ve been on a treadmill. God is using COVID-19 to put the brakes on and encourage us to accept the change. He’s gracing us with the chance of stopping and resetting our priorities. He’s gently asking how would YOU like to respond. Deep in each of us where God resides we know what God is calling us to do. God wants all of us to be happy and he is opening that door to make some intentional and positive changes to our lives. What routines bring me life? Which ones bring me death and pain? This weekend lookout for a video reflection and I’ll be attempting to live stream Mass at 8:30am Sunday. We still don’t know who’s is comping to replace me yet.

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
