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

12th January – Baptism of our Lord 

Hi everyone, we’re almost finished the Christmas Season and blessings for 2019 to you all. While I was away we celebrated the Feasts of the Holy Family; the Epiphany and this week the Baptism of our Lord. During my break, I stayed at the Port Macquarie parish in the Lismore Diocese. Being a coastal parish, their masses on the weekend were full of parishioners and visiting tourists. The parish priest Fr Paul Gooley (a distant relative of Rev. Deacon Anthony Gooley) was a great host. He has two cats: Regina and Hylton. They both have sections in the newsletter: From the Cat-acombs: Episco-puss Wisdom and From the Cat-echism. LOL!! Hylton unfortunately had to be put down while I was there. May he purr in peace!! Closer to home though, it’s my hope in 2019, to do several things. 1. First facilitate a weekend where we as a parish respond to the Plenary Council 2020. Remember the question we are all asked to reflect on is “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” We need your help to make this a fruitful and parish building exercise. Stay posted on how you can help. 2. Secondly we hope to run two Alphas this year to invite new and un-churched people into our community and build a culture of raising up leaders and servants. They will be scheduled for the 7th March and August 22nd, 2019. They will be run on Thursday nights in the Morgan Howe Rooms under the Church. 3. Thirdly towards the end of the year, music during our masses definitely dropped in standard. This was partly of my own doing by removing the paid cantors and musicians from our Sunday and Saturday night Masses. I did this to remind us that our Eucharist is not a concert where someone is performing for us!! The mass must involve us all as participants and even better we should be lead well in praising and worshiping God. My hope is to invite more of you to help sing and play music to enhance our worship at Mass. If you love to help us with making music at this parish the best it can be please contact myself. 4. Finally we need more volunteers for a whole heap of ministries around the parish!! We need more counters to count the weekend masses (takes 1 hour each month); we need more communion ministers and readers especially at the Sat night and Sunday night; we need more projectionists at each Mass; we need a Local Safeguarding Rep (LSR) to help guide the parish on how to protect our young people and those who are vulnerable from abuse and harm. We congratulate the newly born son of Jim and Saritha Joseph in your prayers (Sunday 8am and Wed mass). He was born one month premature at the RBWH last Saturday, so please keep the whole family in your prayers Blessings Fr Nev

Blessings to you all,

Fr Nev Blessings Fr Nev

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.
