Thoughts and Prayers
Please keep Sr Tina in your thoughts and Prayers as she has returned to New Zealand following the recent death of her nephew. It is unclear at this stage how long Sr Tina will be away.
We also remember Fr Johann Lorenz who recently passed away in Perth at the age of 87. Fr Lorenz was the first Parish Priest in Kununurra and also served in Derby and Balgo.
