We congratulate Bishop Michael McCarthy on his ordination as the 10th Bishop of Rockhampton Diocese.  The ceremony, celebrated by Archbishop Mark Coleridge and concelebrated by 5 Archbishops and 18 Bishops from around the country, was held at a packed St Joseph’s Cathedral.

On acknowledging the seminarians from Holy Spirit Seminary and Seminary Rector Monsignor Anthony Randazzo, Bishop Michael invited and encouraged young people to consider a call to the priesthood and religious life. “We need you to continue our work as Priests and especially religious sisters and brothers to lead and support our Catholic folk in the future.”
