Fr Kevin Flanagan marking his service to the people of Albury

Community thanksgiving for Fr Kevin Flanagan marking his service to the people of Albury on his retirement from parish ministry 5pm Sunday 6th August 2017.

On Sunday 23rd of July 2017 Fr Kevin Flanagan will mark 54 years since his ordination and will retire from public parish ministry on that day but on Sunday 6th of August at 5pm at St Matthew’s, the people of Albury will gather to say thanks to one of the region’s best loved citizens and its most senior religious figure. Fr Kevin embodies the heart of contemporary Australia while according to the census traditional religious institutions have lost their audience.

Fr Kevin Flanagan has been a bridge builder between faith and cultural communities, the indigenous community, refugees and people of every or no faith. He has the capacity to reach across generations and find something positive in most situations and represents the best of the Border with well-known sporting affiliations to the river, the field and the track.

His smile and good humour are legendary and he holds some of the events of greatest joy and sorrow within the compass of his service to the people of the region.

All are invited, all welcome.

The Venerable Peter MacLeod-Miller
Archdeacon of Albury and the Hume
St Matthew’s Anglican Church Albury
