Fr Parthalomai 'Bartha' msc

Fr Parthalomai was born on the 8th November 1987 in Tamil Nadu, southern India. His parents were strong influences in his life, always encouraging him to become a good person and serve others tirelessly. He completed his schooling in his hometown, finishing his high school education in 2008, and entered the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart seminary later that same year.

After ten years of study, learning philosophy and theology, he was motivated to become a priest and was ordained on the 28th December 2018. Soon after his ordination, Fr Parthalomai was called to exercise his priestly ministry in Australia, first in Darwin for two years, and now recently appointed to the Randwick Parish. We are delighted to have him with us as part of our community.
