Congratulations for 1st July to Fr Bernie on reaching the milestone of 50 years as a
priest. Fr Bernie is a gift to all of us in this community and we very much value his
input into the community at St Pius V School.
During the liturgy on Monday, we
blessed Fr Bernie and wished him many congratulations. Fr Bernie really appreciated
the Queenslander football jersey that we gave him as a gift from the students and
staff. Together with the gift of tickets to a game from the parents as organised by the
P & F, Fr Bernie was very grateful. A book was also presented to Fr Bernie of the ‘50
Reasons’ we appreciate his input as a priest.
We hope Fr Bernie went home on
Monday to put on his jersey, have a slice of his cake with a cup of tea and enjoy
reading his ’50 Reasons’ book.
Wishing you a wonderful celebration Fr Bernie!
