Father Anthony was ordained in 1997 and is no stranger to parish life and no stranger to Brisbane and Queensland. He has served in many parishes within the Archdiocese from Ipswich, his first appointment, then as parish priest in Gayndah and Maryborough.
In 2005 Fr Anthony was appointed Administrator of 6 parishes, Ashgrove, Bardon, Herston, Newmarket, Red Hill and Rosalie (which was later to become the Jubilee Parish). With north of the river pretty much covered, Father Anthony was sent to Rome (Italy) in late 2006 to study theology, and he is now nearing the completion of his Doctorate in Theology. Returning from Rome, Father Anthony has served as an Administrator of the parishes of Birkdale and Hendra, and most recently at Victoria Point. While writing his doctorate, Fr. Anthony also helped out on weekends at The Gap parish.
In addition to Parish life, and studying, Father Anthony has worked in Adult Education. He is also appointed one day a week as Academic Dean of Holy Spirit Seminary and two days a week as Theological Advisor to Brisbane Catholic Education.
