The memoirs of Fr Adrian Meaney msc were launched on Friday 14th February 2020 at the Sacred Heart Monastery in Kensington
Colourful Australian MSC priest Fr Adrian Meaney passed away just twelve months ago following a ministry in Papua New Guinea, Northern Territory and the MSC Mission Office spanning some 57 years.
Now his memoirs have been published covering all his adventures in life from growing up in Queensland, experiences as a priest in Alice Springs and Papua New Guinea, organizing two Papal visits by John Paul II, and finally founding the MSC Mission Office to help works across the Pacific, Asia and Africa.
Now is your opportunity to buy "A Roaming Catholic" to commemorate and remember this unique individual.
THE MUSTARD SEED
“FROM A FRENCH MISSION TO A PAPUAN CHURCH”
by GEORGES DELBOS
Published in 1985 for the centenary of the founding to the Catholic Church on Yule Island in 1885 this is a very readable and comprehensive history of those 100 years.
Here we have the history of a mission, including the history of the time from popes to rulers, from explorers to geography. It includes the story of our Founder, Fr Jules Chevalier msc, the history of the church in Oceania with Protestants and Papist, missionary from Picpus, Pime, Marists, MSC, SVD and more. We read as interesting background “the stories before the story”, the beginnings, the growth, the expansion; the progress and setbacks, the disasters and disruptions; it is about evangelization, pastoral care, health, education and economics all interwoven with the stories of exploration and politics in an evolving world of colonialists, planters, miners, civil servants and our own missionaries. Valuable reference is made to documents from church and secular sources from Rome to Paris to Papua.
