We congratulate Fr Malcolm on his 86th Birthday.
Fr Malcolm has worked in our Diocese for many years in a number of capacities and Ministries.
He was the first Director of Catholic Education in the Diocese of Darwin. He has been Superior of the MSC community in the NT, Chancellor in our Diocese and is at present Vicar General in our Diocese.
Fr Malcolm has for many years contributed to Chaplaincy in the Italian community within our Diocese.
He spent some time during his study years teaching at St Mary’s Towers and Monivae. He taught at Monivae during the 1960s and then became Headmaster and Superior in 1969.
From Monivae he came to Darwin. While in Darwin, he was asked to visit India to determine whether the Australian Province should set up a foundation in Bangalore. He was sent to Rome for further studies on the Oriental Churches. But he became a foundation member of the Indian region.
We thank Fr Malcolm for his generous contribution and wisdom in Ministry within our Diocese. We wish him well for many more years for Ministry for the service of God and God’s people.
Bishop of Darwin & NT
