Cathedral Parish

It is with some reluctance that I recently accepted the resignation of our Music Ministry Director, Anna Thompson. Some changes in personal circumstances necessitated Anna making this decision. She will be finishing up on 11 September and taking up a job in Orange.

However to make the transition as smooth as possible she will still coordinate the music ministry dinner/meeting planned for Friday 19 October (save the date and stay tuned for details).

Anna has been in the job for a year and in that time has made an invaluable contribution to the music ministry in our Parish. Her own musical talent has added to many of the liturgies in the Cathedral and Assumption churches. Her administrative skills have been well utilised in coordinating the many facets of this role of Music Ministry Director.

Her gentle presence has been welcome in the Presbytery by staff and visitors alike.

For all you’ve given Anna, we thank you, and we wish you all the best in your new endeavours. Hopefully our paths will cross now and again.

Recruitment for Anna’s replacement will begin soon. If you, or someone you know, feel that this may be a job for you, please contact Fr Paul Devitt at with a written Expression of Interest and I will send you out the job description.
