Father Mauro Conte becomes Parish Priest of the new Springfield Parish

A major celebration took place yesterday at Robelle Domain Springfield Central when a thousand people welcomed Fr Mauro Conte as the first parish priest of the new Springfield Parish.

He accepted his appointment from the Archbishop of Brisbane Archbishop Bathersby.

It was a moving experience being the first new parish in Queensland in 15 years.

Also in attendance were Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale, Federal Member for Oxley Bernie Ripoll, local Councillor for Greater Springfield Paul Tully and co-founder of the Springfield Land Corporation Maha Sinnathamby.
