Father Tim Cahill died on 8th January after a long illness which he bore with the same Christian faith, hope and love that he brought to his ministry as a priest of Bathurst Diocese over the past 35 years.

Tim served as an assistant priest in Bathurst and Cowra; as University Chaplain; and as Parish Priest of Dunedoo, Wellington and Blayney. 

He was a beloved member of the Shalom Community in Carcoar. His last appointment was as Rector of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

The restored organ there in Carcoar is one tangible reminder of his talent; but it is in our memories and in the eyes of God that his gifts as a loving pastor and friend to young and old will remain.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
