Province Chapter of the Pauline Fathers in Australia


At the beginning of November 2022, we welcomed Fr. Arnold and Fr. Bartholomew to our Parish.

I would like to extend to all our Parishioners my thanks for the warm welcome and hospitality that they received.

From the 7th – 11th November, Fr. Arnold led the Australian Province of the Pauline Fathers in our Provincial Chapter at the St. Joseph’s Retreat Centre and Baulkham Hills.

It was a great opportunity for the Pauline Fathers to reconnect after two years of restrictions and to discuss the future governance, direction, and Pastoral Care of the Order in Australia.

Thank you for your patience this week.

As a result of the Chapter, the members of the Australian Province have elected the following Council:

Provincial:      Fr. Jaroslaw (Jarek) Zan

I Definitor:      (& Provincial Vicar): Fr. Damian Mosakowski

II Definitor:     Fr. Joseph Maria Buckley

III Definitor:    Fr. Wojciech (Wojtek) Sliwa

IV Definitor:   Fr. Peter James Strohmayer

Administrator:   Fr. Jeremy Santoso

We would like to congratulate these members of the Council and offer our Prayers for their success as they lead the Pauline Order for the next three years.
