Fr Adrian Francis Meaney msc
It is with sadness that we report Fr Adrian Meaney MSC OBE CSM passed away on Wednesday night February 6th, 2019, in hospital after a short illness.
He was still active in his ministry and works for the Mission Office right up until the previous Saturday.
Adrian had only recently completed newsletter #75 that is available on the Mission Office web site
He wrote in his summary in the newsletter “Our faith is based on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, by which we are freed from the slavery of sin and become children of God. We are born to a new life.”
Adrian has now been born to his new life with Jesus and the Father.
Father Adrian had often spoken of commencing scholarships in memoriam of our Mission Office workers who have passed away. You may donate to these scholarships through the donate button below.
2019 Living Water Calendar
The 2019 Living Water Calendar is now available for only $5 (including postage).
This is a great Christmas gift for family, friends, co-workers, parishioners and school staff.
Each day includes references to liturgical readings; the daily Gospel and all the readings for Sundays as well as wonderful images each month from around the world.
In this way we strive to share with others a common vision and mission for justice, peace and integrity of all creation.
Also we recall the cry of Christ on the Cross: "I thirst". These were the words of a thirsty person, and came from deep within His Sacred Heart. His thirst was not simply for water but especially the eternal thirst of our Creator God who told St Margaret Mary Alacoque: "Look at My Heart, which loves so much and is loved so little in return".

Australians have a proven record of distinguished service in developing countries. Each year hundreds of people go to many countries, often for years, and do remarkable work.
One of the works of the MSC Mission Office is to provide clean water to people all over the world. In so doing we are motivated by the words of Jesus when He said that if we give as much as a cup of water in His name it will not go without its reward.
