ARCHDIOCESE OF CANBERRA AND GOULBURN FREE | No. 356 | AUGUST 2019 | Circulation 19,000

After half a century, Canberra’s Jesuit community is moving on. The bags have been packed, accommodation secured, and farewells have been spoken. It’s a farewell tinged with regret. As Fr Frank Brennan says in his feature piece, “Alas, we no longer have the personnel on hand.” Fr Stephen Astill SJ will remain in the parish as Administrator of Moruya, but aside from his presence, what will remain of the community will be the memories they created, the bonds they formed and the substantial impact they had on Canberra Catholic life. They were farewelled in a Mass at St Christo- pher’s Cathedral on Wednesday, July 31. See inside for full feature on the Jesuit’s farewell. Jesuits bid Canberra farewell
