Fr Lyall Farewell 2017



On Sunday April 9, 2017 Mass & Morning Tea was held at St John’s Church Mullumbimby for Fr Lyall Cowell’s farewell.

A sad farewell to Father Lyall and his lovely wife Gilda who are retiring north to their home in Queensland. We will miss their friendly smiles and open-hearted guidance (and wonderful cooking from Gilda!). We hope you enjoy your travels and spending more time together. We will sorely miss your presence here at St John’s. Thank you for all your hard work in the parish and ministering to our spiritual needs and being such a good friend.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
