Welcome Fathers Vinu and Salestinus

Two new priests were welcomed to the Diocese in February.
Fr Vinu Devassy is a priest with the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus in Kerala, India.
Fr Salestinus Bani is a priest with the Missionaries of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in Kupang, Indonesia.Both Fr Vinu and Fr Salestinus travelled to Broome in a roundabout way due to the COVID restrictions at the time.  They initially arrived into Sydney where they spent two months with the Redemptorist Fathers before travelling to Perth and then onto Broome in February of this year.

Fr Vinu (photo at the left) is currently located in Balgo/Kutjungka Parish in the absence of a priest in residence, while Fr Salestinus (photo at the right) is Assistant Priest in the Parish of Derby.

Broome Diocese acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners and Elders, both past and present, of the lands on which Broome Diocese offices and operations are located.
