Parish priest: Father Julian Messina OFM Cap.
From The Capuchin Friars of Australia Website
Let me introduce myself: I am a Capuchin Friar who at the age of 20 entered the Novitiate in 1970 and took the name of Julian (after St. Peter Julian Eymard). The year before, during my Postulancy in Plumpton, N.S.W. I was still known as Sam - the name I answered to as I grew up in the northern cane fields of Redlynch (Cairns), Qld.
Being of Italian migrant stock I inherited a strong sense of religion at an early age even if at times this religiosity tended to be more cultural than faith oriented. Thanks to the religious education received from the Mercy and Josephite Sisters and the Marist Brothers my faith gradually matured to the level where at the age of 18 I felt I wanted to make a commitment to God as a Religious Priest.
