Surprise Visit February 2012

On 7 February a group of local Sisters gathered to share afternoon tea with Bishop Charles Drennan of the Palmerston North diocese.  Bishop Charles had been in Whanganui for Cullinane College’s Opening Mass and was able to fit in a short introductory visit to Mt St Joseph.

Time was spent with introductions to local Sisters, staff of Mt St Joseph and managers of Nazareth and Quinlan Court.  Bishop Charles also spoke of his initial time in the Diocese travelling to the various areas and getting to know the people. 
Since his visit, Bishop Peter Cullinane has officially retired and Bishop Charles became Bishop of Palmerston North on 22 February.
