THANK YOU FATHER WAYNE
Fr Wayne Dohey is the well loved parish priest of St Patrick's who, sadly for St Patrick's, is moving on to continue his good work in another parish. Fr Wayne, his enthusiasm, his kindness, his dedication and his brilliant smile will be sorely missed. Thank you Fr Wayne and may God bless you abundantly.
Mary Lou Mallard Tucker has sent us this touching tribute to Fr Wayne.
"Father Wayne Dohey
St Patrick’s Parish
Can anyone predict what is in God’s plan
When we arrive to this uncertain world?
Unforeseen circumstances do sometimes happen
Which can put one’s life in a twirl.
Father, all that you have been through,
You have been through many tests.
God definitely sees the whole picture
As Satan hates Christian happiness.
God presented us with a wonderful man of the cloth
Who will always go that extra mile.
You try to preach to Cod’s children everywhere
With a compassionate heart, which is so your style.
Your brilliant mind teaches all of us
We should live out God’s holy word.
In the future we will try to remember
Your powerful words which we have heard.
You are going where you are needed now
Your full time work at St Patrick’s done.
It is with deep sadness that is felt in all of our hearts
As our parish priest, you are our special one.
We will all miss you!
Mary Lou Tucker and Family"
