Farewell Dr Keith Joseph

On Friday 8 March, the Cathedral parish, invited guests from the diocese and the Darwin community and had a wonderful Christ Church party to farewell the 7th Dean of Darwin, who had been elected Bishop of Northern Queensland and was leaving Darwin the following week. At the 9:00 am Eucharist on Sunday 10 March, Fr Keith preached his last sermon as Dean of Darwin and handed back the Symbols of the Pastoral Office which he had been entrusted with at his investiture in November 2013. We sent him on his way with love and gratitude, knowing that he will be visiting Darwin again in the near future and thank God for his tremendous ministry in Darwin.
