With Bishop Peter Ingham
Ordained a priest by Cardinal Gilroy on 18 July 1964, Fr Ingham served in Rosebery, Newtown, St Mary’s and Auburn South parishes and later as Monsignor of St Charles in Ryde. He was appointed a Bishop on 24th May 1993 in the Archdiocese of Sydney. He later became the much-loved fourth Bishop of the Wollongong Diocese from 2001-2018 while more recently serving as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Broome. Bishop Peter’s fun-loving character and deep pastoral heart will be a joy for all those blessed to join him on this Catholic Roadtrip.
