Welcome to Father Peter and Marie Rothnie

Fr Peter & Marie RothnieWe are thrilled to welcome Fr Peter and Marie Rothnie to minister amongst us in the Parish.

Fr Peter was ordained to the priesthood in 2009 and has served in the Parishes of Murrurundi and Scone within the Diocese of Newcastle.

Fr Peter has served as the CEO of Hunter Integrated Care and now works as a consultant to community-based organisations across Australia.  In 2007 he was awarded CEO of the year by the Not For Profit Network Awards.  Marie works as a nurse in outback and remote communities, and they have travelled extensively together.  Fr Peter and Marie have moved into their new home in Tenambit.

Fr Peter joins us as an Associate Priest in a non-stipendiary (unpaid) capacity to serve alongside Fr Wilf and Fr David.  He will share in the priestly ministries of the parish and, as a member of the Ministry Staff Team, will have a particular focus on ministry amongst older men.

We look forward to Father Peter and Marie sharing their many gifts and skills with us, and we hope that they will have a happy and fulfilling time in our Parish!
