The Cross in the desert: Along the Canning Stock Route in the heart of Australia’s outback, south of Billiluna, East Kimberley.
Quote: Gal 2: 19-21
I have been nailed to the cross with Christ. I have died, but Christ lives in me. And I now live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me. I don’t turn my back on God’s gift of undeserved grace.

Appointed to Parish of Port Hedland
Father Mark Connolly CSSp has moved to Port Hedland in the Diocese of Geraldton from the Parish of Wyndham-Warmun in the Kimberley Mission. His move leaves the East Kimberley Parish vacant and without a Pastor. For the time being Father Patrick De Silva from Kununurra will look after Wyndham and Warmun. Other arrangements will be made for Halls Creek and Ringer Soak previously cared for by Father Mark. Bishop Saunders was effusive in his praise for the work Fr Mark has undertaken in the East Kimberley over the last three years and five months.
“He will be missed here in the Kimberley,” the Bishop said. “He has worked tirelessly in his ministry and risen generously to each challenge placed before him. We wish him well and God speed.”
