“Churches play a big part for the greater good in our city,” said Mayor Paul Antonio. “I want to thank you and your churches for all that you do.”
The morning also provided an opportunity to officially welcome the regions new Anglican Bishop, Reverend Cameron Venables.
The Mayor, along with Catholic Bishop Robert McGuckin, welcomed Bishop Venables on behalf of the community and churches.
Bishop Venables is the former Archdeacon of Rockhampton, and originates from Northern Ireland.
“I really appreciate the high level of unity in Tooowooba,” said Bishop Venables. “Especially considering when I was born in Ireland, Catholics and Protestants were killing each other.”
