With Fr John Corrigan
Fr John is a Parish Priest of the four parishes which constitute the Warrnambool Ministry District: St Joseph’s Parish in Warrnambool, St Pius X Parish in West Warrnambool, Infant Jesus Parish in Koroit and St Patrick’s Parish in Port Fairy. He was ordained a priest for the diocese of Ballarat in 2011 and shares a great heart and knowledge of the life and journey of St Mary MacKillop having been born and bred in this region. What a blessing he will be as he leads us forward on Australia’s most popular pilgrimage trail.

Let us all resign ourselves into His hands, and pray that in all things He may guide us to do His Holy Will… When thoughts of this or that come I turn to Him and say: “Only what you will, my God. Use me as You will.
When I want something very much, I thank God beforehand for I feel God will certainly grant what he has been thanked for.
Courage, courage, trust in God who helps you in all things we feel our crosses hard at times, but our courage should rise with them.
