Fr. Robert Stickland who is the pastor at our Noble Park Parish has been elected President of the Interfaith Network of the City of Greater Dandenong, Victoria.

Fr. Robert represents the Ukrainian Catholic community in the network.

The network was created by the City of Dandenong to promote respect, and tolerance of the various religious beliefs, cultures, and traditions. They work together to put aside intolerance, prejudice, and divisiveness, and to work towards peaceful co-existence in the city.

As president, Fr. Robert will be the spokesperson of the group. He will work with City Council and the media. He will also co-ordinate activities of the network which include Christian and Non-Christian faiths.

We congratulate Fr. Robert and pray for him in his new role.
