New Prison Chaplain for Bathurst

Bishop Michael McKenna has announced he will be nominating Father Greg Walsh cm to be the new Catholic chaplain at the Bathurst Correctional Centre.

There were a number of good applications for the position and the selection panel, comprising Father Mark McGuigan, Sister Pauline Staunton and Mr Tony Eviston, recommended Father Greg.

The Bishop is very grateful to Father Greg and the Vincentians for being willing to undertake this important work and looks forward to welcoming him to Bathurst.

Bathurst is one of several correctional centres in our Diocese. Father Greg will be one of two Chaplains at the Centre and will provide pastoral support to approximately 500 inmates.
