He was ordained at St.Mary's Cathedral, Sydney in 1958 and spent three months at OLSH in the same year. He has rejoined us after an absence of 50 years! Congratulations on achieving your golden jubilee Father!!

He also taught in the Novitiate in Hamilton, Victoria. The last 6 years he was Novitiate Master in Kanjoor India where he taught mainly Religion.

As befits all old boys of Joeys, Fr. Bolt is interested in sport, particularly Rugby. Throughout his teaching career he has been involved with the School Cadet Corps and achieved the rank of Major. Welcome to Fr Tony Bolt!

Fr Joshua Gopini msc
 
Father Joshva Gopini, born in Davangere, in the State of Kanataka, Southern  India. After  graduating from high school in 1994, I joined the Catholic Order of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, and commenced my priestly studies. After completing  these studies I was ordained into the priesthood on September 16, 2004 in Bangalore. Following my ordination, for the next two years I worked in the Minor Seminary in Bangalore as a member of the teaching staff. and the Seminary's Bursar. In 2006 I was transferred to the Diocese of Mysore as an associate Pastor, in order to gain pastoral experience for a period of one year. In the following year, 2007, I returned to Bangalore where I was placed in charge of the pre-novices, again for another year.
My next appointment was to work as a pastoral assistant in the Parish of Randwick, Sydney, Australia. While I was waiting to obtain my visa I was temporarily appointed to work as an assistant in a Union Administration, and also as a scholasticate bursar.
When my Visa was finalised in 2009, I moved to Australia  to work in our Australian Province, where I took up my position as assistant Pastor at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish, Randwick. My duties at Randwick currently include a variety of ministries including chaplain to the Parish Young Adults Group, Antioch, various hospitals and  parish school
