Deacon Tim Shanahan Appointed to St Joseph’s Posted by admin - 21/06/17 11:48AM - -
The Archbishop has appointed a Deacon to Nambour Parish. Rev Tim Shanahan will take up duties amongst us from the 1st July. He will not be working full time but giving his service voluntarily as much as he is able. For many years he and his wife Jeanette have lived at Caloundra. Tim has served there as Deacon for seven years and as Pastoral Associate during that time. The Deacon’s role includes assisting at Mass, celebrating baptism, weddings, and funerals and preaching. He can preside at Liturgies of the Word in the absence of a priest. The Deacon’s role is not one which takes over ministries which are properly the responsibility of lay people. We look forward to welcoming Tim next weekend.
