Tu es sacerdos in aeternum.

Two friends of mine were ordained priests on Saturday.  Fr Samuel Chua and Fr Joseph Chua (unrelated!) are Cistercian monks at Tarrawarra Abbey, Melbourne (Australia).

Tarrawarra Abbey is a community of Cistercian monks in the heart of the Yarra Valley, 60 kilometres north-east of the city of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Founded in 1954 by Mount St Joseph Abbey, Roscrea in Ireland, the monks of Tarrawarra belong to the worldwide Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance (OCSO), popularly known as the “Trappists”.
Tarrawarra is the only Cistercian community in Australia.  Samuel and Joseph entered Tarrawarra just a little before I did when I was discerning a monastic vocation.
See Tarrawarra’s Facebook page here.
Congratulations Fr Samuel and Fr Joseph!  Ad multos annos!
