Australian infiltration …

I was interested to read in Archbishop Prendergast’s blog that an Australian priest provided the music for the Canadian prayer rally in Spain as part of the World Youth Day celebrations.

Meanwhile Archbishop Terence Prendergast of Ottowa and Archbishop Gerald Lacroix of Quebec led the gathering in a “prayer of commissioning” that was first used by Pope John Paul II in Toronto.

Throughout, music was provided by Christian rock singer Fr. Robert Galea, a Maltese priest who is now based in Australia.

And just to keep the Australian connection going, while His Grace is away from Ottawa, another Australian priest will offer Mass in his Cathedral today!  Those Australians are very useful creatures.
