Father Anthony Apr 2015   Fr Anthony Fregolent,CS was born in a little village, Sernaglia Della Battaglia, in the Treviso province, about 60km north of Venice in the Veneto Region of Northern Italy. He entered the seminary in the mid 60's. After completing his philosophy studies in Italy he was then sent to the United States for four years to study theology. He was 25 when he was ordained in Venice by the Bishop of Vittorio-Veneto, Bishop Albino Luciani, later cardinal and Patriarch of Venice and elected the 'smiling pope' – John Paul I.

After four years and a few months in Wollongong he was sent to the Melbourne Archdiocese as a chaplain for migrant communities in different parishes, particularly Fitzroy and Carlton where he lived in St Brigid's parish Fitzroy North.

When the new SBS television station was starting up they advertised for volunteers as broadcasters, so he put his hand up to do religious programs.

After a successfull audition, he was invited to start saying Mass on air every Sunday, homily included. He would also do special programs at Easter and Christmas or on Mother's Day. This continued on until he left Melbourne for Adelaide in 1992, he was then known as the "The Radio Priest".

In 2003 he came to the people and parishes of western Sydney. He was based at Mt Pritchard but also served Cabramatta - the Sacred Heart Church, and Punchbowl - St Jerome's.

In 2008 the Scalabrinian Congregation was given Pastoral Care of our parish and after a journey of over 40 years, Father Anthony Fregolent, CS was appointed as our Parish Priest.

fr syrilus 2018a   Fr Syrilus was born in Flores , Indonesia and was ordained on the 27th August 2015. His desire to become a priest, nurtured since childhood, prompted him to enter the Scalabrinian seminary after graduation from senior high school in 2002.
His formation, so far, has brought him to the Philippines, Argentina and Italy, where
to varying degrees, he has learnt the language of each country. His first missionary assignment was in the Philippines as a vocation promoter. As Fr Syrilus begins his ministry at OLMC, he has humbly entrusted himself to our prayers and support.
