The Melbourne Archdiocese has a new Archbishop


Melbourne has welcomed Archbishop Peter A Comensoli on Wednesday.

Please pray for him :pray:t2:


I hope his first week, month, and year are successful and bring people back into the folds of the Church.



Did you watch the mass


I did, online and read the homilies.



What were the homilies like


There seemed to be excited for the next chapter. :slight_smile:


For those needing a bit more context:

The Melbourne Archdiocese, the largest in Australia with 1.1 million Catholics, has also been rocked by same-sex marriage laws, the imminent legalisation of assisted dying in Victoria and mounting pressure for greater accountability around church finances.
