Fr Peter Hearn msc

Fr Peter Hearn msc began his role as parish priest of OLSH and SMM on the 28th of January 2009. Previously he was at Treand House at Coogee as Assistant to the Provincial of the MSC order. Prior to that he has been at Willoughby, Beijing, Kensington Monastery, Darwin, Belgium, Towoomba and Canberra! He grew up in Yambuk in Victoria and was ordained in 1976. Fr Peter has been reappointed to Randwick for three more years in 2015. "The Parish of OLSH-SMM has exceptionally generous and dedicated people. One major area of development has been the out-reach to the Pacific MSC-OLSH Mission area of Kiribati, thanks to the Friends of Kensigton Monastery and their close connection with this parish, and their support of the MSC Mission Office. Our connections with this poor Nation began in 1885 when OLSH Parish Randwick was established as a base to supply the new MSC Mission there. This, among other activities, helps our parish be outward looking - and missionary."
