Deacon Stefan Matuszek will be ordained to the Priesthood at St. Francis Xavier Church Ballina on Monday 14th September at 7pm.
Seven years of study have also included working in various pastoral areas of care and concern for others. He undertook pastoral placements in primary and secondary schools, nursing homes, soup kitchens, hospitals, Wagga Wagga Juvenile prison, six parishes in the Diocese of Lismore, World Youth days in Sydney and Madrid, Pilgrimage and missionary work in Vietnam and much more.
As he looks forward to his Ordination, Stefan sums up the waiting experience in these words: “ I don’t imagine the priesthood to be an easy life, but if God is calling me to it He will help me to live it. Serving God and His people is its own reward. Please pray for me that I will always answer God’s call to serve.”
Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett, Bishop of the Lismore Diocese, will ordain Stefan in St. Francis Xavier Church Ballina on the 14th September at 7pm..
