Happy 5th Anniversary of Episcopal Ordination Bishop Charles!
My dear friends, can you imagine the shock, and indeed the trauma, that must have accompanied ‘the news’?
Fr Charles Gauci had been recently appointed as the Administrator of the Cathedral, in the Archdiocese of Adelaide, a place he knew well from his childhood. He had begun his work and had grand plans for the coming years.
Then, out of the blue, he gets a call asking him to become the Bishop of the Diocese of Darwin, at the other end of the country!!!!
Being the person he is, he accepted this call as the will of God and embraced it, with enthusiasm!!! Over the last five years, he has spent himself tirelessly, travelling our immense Diocese, meeting the people, and bringing comfort and blessings.
Bishop Charles is now identified with this Diocese and proudly calls it ‘home’. May God continue to bless him abundantly.
