Congratulations to Peter Lin who was appointed Bishop of Georges River Region in Sydney. Peter will be consecrated on 30 May 2015. Peter is the recotor of Fairfield and his contribution to the region and the diocese has been very significant. George River Region has not had a bishop for some time and Peter's knowledge and engagement with one of Sydney's most culturally diverse regions will be a great asset. Do pray for him, Isobel and their family as Peter takes up this important role.
Bishop Ian Palmer's address to Synod was challenging. How do the parishes and diocese serve the communities in which they live? Such a focus is significant epecially given the Commonwealth Bank's legal proceedings to recover debt. Expenses are high and parishes are struggling to pay their assessments. Will you keep Bishop Ian and the many parishes across western NSW in your prayers?
