Parish Celebration of the Feast of St Liborius.

Our Parish Patron, St Liborius, is also the Patron Saint of Paderborn, Germany. We take pride in being the only parish in Australia to have St Liborius as our patron, and to be able to say we can trace our origin direct to the missionary work of Dr Henry Backhaus in the Diocese of Sandhurst. Born of an illustrious family in Germany, Liborius became a priest, then later became a bishop of Le Mans, France. He was also a companion of St Martin of Tours. St Liborius was a bishop for 49 years. He died on 23rd July 397 A.D. As our patron, let us call for St Liborius intercession for our parish, that we may grow together in Faith, in hope and in love.

Today is also my final weekend in this parish. I’m taking on my new Parish assignment on Wednesday, this week. Thank you St Liborius.
