Bishop Vincent Long addresses the community at Lawson...

Headline

This video was recorded on Sunday, 13th November 2016 at the celebrations to mark the restoration of the parish church of Our Lady of the Nativity at Lawson. In his homily, the Bishop of Parramatta, Vincent Long Van Nguyen offers the very frank assessment of a bishop who appreciates the crisis in trust the Church and its leadership are presently facing. Bishop Vincent's homily links in Sunday's Gospel prophecy by Jesus of the Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, with the destruction this community in the Blue Mountains experienced when their parish church was damaged a year ago, and to the wider crisis in trust that is afflicting the institutional Church globally. The video incorporates hi-lites of the day and includes in full Bishop Vincent's homily with captions.
