Greetings with the Love and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ

Permit me to share a little bit of myself. I was born in the city of Mumbai, India with a Goan heritage. I joined the Congregation of the Missionaries of St. France de Sales (MSFS) and upon completing my seminary studies, was ordained a priest on 4 May 1991. After a decade of appointments as assistant priest in a parish and a high school teacher, I was sent to the assist the diocese of Parramatta in 2000. Since then, I have been assigned to several parishes as an assistant, priest-in-charge, administrator and from June 15, 2023, as parish priest of St. Bernadette, Lalor Park.

I have been welcomed by this parish community and hoping to have a fruitful ministry here at St. Bernadette’s.

With peace and friendship in God’s mission

- Fr. Clifford D’souza, MSFS
