Fr Bernie's Golden Jubilee

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 ap​preciate 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!
