First Schoenstatt Diocesan Priest in Australia dies

Fr Denis Patrick Foley, born 18 July 1939 and ordained 21 July 1962, died on 10 October 2018. This homily was given by Fr Terry Bell at the funeral on 17 October 2018.

Yesterday, it was necessary and fitting that the Vigil Mass for Fr Denis was celebrated at the site of the Shrine of Our Lady Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt at Mulgoa, for Denis was a consecrated member of the Secular Institute of Schoenstatt Diocesan Priests. And now it is fitting that we are gathered for his Funeral Mass in the Parish chosen by him as the place for his ministry as a Priest on Lesser Duties. It was chosen because it is the Sydney Parish closest to Mulgoa cared for by Diocesan Clergy. It also enjoyed having as its Patron Mary Immaculate.
